WhatsApp Tests Redesigned Location Stickers And Rolls Out Larger Group Size Limits

WhatsApp has reportedly tested and rolled out some new and exciting features for its users as a part of its new update.

The first one is related to a revamped location sticker for the app’s drawing editor. Therefore, some selected users over the Android Beta would be getting their hands on the exclusive feature while we’ll just have to wait for a little while longer until it’s rolled out for the others.

Thanks to WABetainfo, we’re getting an up-close and personal look at the redesigned appeal of these stickers that makes use of a unique green tone, a big contrast to the previous one that was released.

There is also another style up for grabs that have been similarly redesigned and if you wish to make the upgrade to the new one, you simply need to tap on the new sticker and see the difference.

Those who aren’t too sure if the new sticker is available on their WhatsApp version can simply open up their drawing editor by clicking on an image and going to the sticker section.

The company hopes to make the launch for everyone in the next few weeks so stay tuned for that.


Next up, WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that increases group size limits from the previous 256 to 512!

While the functionality was unveiled last month, users were searching for the date of the launch and now it appears that the waiting game is finally over. With the number of participants seen in each group being doubled, users were excited for the reveal as it adds a great level of convenience across the board for all.

The new feature will be a part of the latest update for users with Android and iOS as well as those with the desktop version of the app.

Yes, it’s quite tiny compared to what Telegram is offering- around 200,000 participants- but we still feel it’s a great start from where we first began.


WhatsApp revealed in their official press release last month how much they were looking forward to the change because it was a top request from so many users.

The news comes as the leading messaging platform increased its limits of file sharing to 2GB, which was another trending request it received over the past few months.

Now, we’re just waiting for the app to roll out its Edit Button because users are clearly running out of patience as they anticipate the great addition.
