The Old Notification We always got when sending larger file more than 100MB.
Hey users, as per WhatsApp reports now you can easily share upto 2GB files in WhatsApp for IOS & Android users.
WhatsApp is said to be testing a feature with a few beta users that allows them to send 2GB of media files. According to a report, this ability to share a huge media file is being tested on both WhatsApp for iOS as well as for Android. Currently, users can only send files up to 100MB in size. This news comes a few days after WhatsApp beta users for Android got the ability to pause and resume voice message recordings.
Share Large Files Upto 2GB On Whatsapp Beta Update Testing
WABetainfo, which tracks updates related to WhatsApp before they are rolled out to the general public, says a few beta users of WhatsApp for Android as well as WhatsApp for iOS in Argentina have the ability to share media files of up to 2GB in size. . The report also states that WhatsApp beta versions 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 on Android and beta 220.127.116.11 on iOS have been flagged as compatible updates. As it is a test, it is possible that the Meta-owned instant messaging platform will not roll out the feature to users at this time.
If WhatsApp decides to release it for all its users, it may prove to be an essential feature. With the continuous improvement of the camera resolution of the latest smartphones, media files are also increasing, which makes it difficult for users to share these files across people and devices. In this way, users can easily send large files via WhatsApp and they will not have to rely on other platforms or software for the same.
However, it is not yet clear if WhatsApp users will be able to share photos in full resolution.
WhatsApp usually compresses media files when sent through the app, apparently forcing users to send photos as documents to retain the original quality of the content. The instant messaging platform has reportedly been testing displaying previews of media files sent as documents.
Recently, WhatsApp for Android got the ability to pause and resume while recording audio messages for beta testers. WhatsApp originally introduced the feature on iOS.
