The New Function That WhatsApp Tests: Send 2GB Files

whatsapp: In the beginning it was just text messages because there was a messaging app for that. But as smartphones evolved and applications needed to have more multitasking, whatsapp expanded the range of functions. And nowadays it is very common to send files through the app which are not only photos but also songs, videos or even documents. But there is a problem: the limit

New limit in WhatsApp to send files

Today, whatsapp lets you send files up to 100MB via chats, a sufficient limit when this feature was activated years ago, but clearly insufficient in the current context we move in, that of remote working and distance relationships. which sometimes requires greater freedom when sending documents.

As we can read in Europa Press, whatsapp changed a limit on its platform to allow for sending larger files and documents, with a new limit of up to 2 GB, which is an advantage over the 100 extremely poor megabytes it allows by default. † This new limit is being tested with users from Argentina.

Up to 2GB

The test is activated for users in this South American country, but the contacts to whom they send files up to 2GB can be from anywhere in the world. This new limit is available for both Android and iOS whatsapp and whatsapp Web and desktop versions.

At the moment it is not known whether the test will be extended to other countries, when it will officially reach the standard version of WhatsApp, or if Meta might not see the point and end up not getting it. But without a doubt that increase, from 100MB to 2GB no less, would be very well received, so hopefully it will be activated soon.
