The new banner will announce that’s possible to share documents and files up to 2GB in size. It might be useful as it will raise awareness among users who are not familiar with this feature and it will surely encourage people to try it out.

This lets group administrators have more freedom when naming their groups, making it easier to identify the purpose of the group. In addition, the Meta-owned messaging application is increasing the group description from 512 characters to 2048 characters.
This update provides more space for group administrators to add important details and information about the group, making it easier for all group participants to understand the purpose of the group, in particular when it’s linked to a community, the report said.
