Meta-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp is now rolling three new features in the coming weeks, WABetainfo reported.

According to the WhatsApp news tracker, the first feature is about the release of message reactions to everyone, already announced by Mark Zuckerberg. However, it is worth mentioning that since the company is slowly rolling out the feature, it will take up to seven days before reaching everyone.

The second feature under pipeline is related to sharing media files. WhatsApp will soon allow sharing of media files up to 2GB in size, protected by end-to-end encryption.
