WhatsApp has had certain features for many years, but some of them are somewhat limited. Over time, the needs of users change, so that WhatsApp creates a little more freedom. That’s exactly what happened again now.
WhatsApp allows the sending of large files
In March, WhatsApp launched a very small test in which users from Argentina Could send files up to 2 GB in size via WhatsApp. Actually, WhatsApp only allows the sending of files with a maximum size of 100 MB. So here you have twenty times the file size available, which means that you can also send really large files directly via WhatsApp. Exactly this limit is now also being raised for many users (source: WABetaInfo).
In the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android, many more people now have the opportunity to send files up to 2 GB. Do you have the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android installed via the Google Play Store, then you can easily try out whether you have already been unlocked. Simply select a file that is very large and try to send it. For example, if you use a video with 3 GB, WhatsApp will show you the message that you can “only” send 2 GB files via the messenger. If this message comes, you are there. Otherwise, the limit of 100 MB applies.
Even if you don’t belong to it yet, the The test phase is now much broader. More and more people are signing up who do not live in Argentina and can still send larger files via WhatsApp. So the company continues to test cheerfully and sees whether the infrastructure can cope with it.
The most popular WhatsApp alternatives have been able to do this for a long time:
WhatsApp allows to recover deleted messages
But that’s not the only good news about WhatsApp. Soon you will be able to recover messages that you have accidentally deleted and thus clean up your mistake. This function is also currently under development.
