WhatsApp Wants to Bring Large Media Sharing to the App

WhatsApp has been on the market for quite some time, and still, the company always works on improving the features of the app. Everything goes through beta testing, of course, and only chosen users can get a glance at the upcoming updates. Developers want to give their followers a clean product without bugs, and before they do that, every detail needs to be checked. Lately, in another beta for WhatsApp, testers have claimed that we might get an opportunity to send files up to 2 GB.

First of all, not everyone can access the feature. Mainly users from South America are able to test out the upgrade, and it currently works on the latest versions of both Android and iOS. It is a big jump from the 100 MB limit that is set in the original version of the app. This update might actually bring some big changes to the app market for many companies. Current size limits differ for many apps, but they rarely reach as high as 2 GB.

For example, Gmail, the most popular email from Google, has a limit of only 25 MB, and users can tell you how much of a bummer that is. In many cases, you will need to either compress files to an archive or send a link to cloud storage. On the contrary, Twitter allows users to upload files up to 1 GB, which makes video sharing much more comfortable. Overall, if you want to share a high-resolution photo on a messaging app, you will need to cut down on pixels, which highly affects the quality of the pic.

We hope that this new update will arrive worldwide pretty soon. With its help, WhatsApp can possibly attract larger audiences to the platform. Besides that, we can wait for new emojis and messages reactions to brighten up the dialogue.
