There has been a massive limitation when it comes to file sharing on WhatsApp, as users cannot send large files – videos or PDFs – because the platform limits file sharing to 100MB. It allows users to share media files of up to 2 GB.
The report notes that the feature is currently being tested with beta users in Argentina as of now, and for a few beta testers in Argentina, the feature is available on both Android and iOS.
However, the report notes that it is not clear whether WhatsApp plans to roll out the feature to general users or not, and the report stated that “WhatsApp may roll back the changes by restoring the previous limit after testing: only time will tell.”
There have been occasions when the feature appears in beta versions of WhatsApp but it does not end up reaching the general public, as WhatsApp competitor Telegram has a feature where users can send files up to 2GB, so WhatsApp may also be able to roll out this feature .
Meanwhile, the multi-device WhatsApp feature is now rolling out to all users. The feature was previously only in beta mode, the feature allows users to access the platform on multiple devices even if there is no connection on the primary device, and users can link one WhatsApp account to up to four other devices.
WhatsApp has also started releasing React Messages for Android users with a beta update, and the feature has been in the works for some time now. According to the report, there are six reactions available for Android users – Like, Love, Laugh, Surprised, Sad, and Thanks, as the feature is quite similar to the reactions available on Facebook and Instagram.
