WhatsApp will release a new feature that allows users to send large media files (up to 2GB) to selected beta testers. The new feature will work on both Android as well as iOS.
Social media platforms allow sharing media files of a limited size. It is currently being implemented in Argentina. Other regions will need to wait.
Google owns Gmail and does not allow file attachments larger than 25MB in one session. This is something we all know.
WhatsApp’s new file limit has become necessary as more people use higher resolution lenses to produce larger files. Before sending the files, people usually need to edit or cut them in-app. The quality of media files is reduced, so the final result might not be what you expected.
WhatsApp users can send media files of up to 100MB via the app. However, WhatsApp users can now send files up to 2GB without any restrictions with the new update.
WhatsApp could also keep the 100MB limit and eliminate the 2GB file limit. WABetaInfo, an official WhatsApp tracker, says that this feature is only available to a small group of beta testers in Argentina. It may change before the final rollout.
Even if WhatsApp decides to abandon the idea, it is crucial for solving today’s problem.
