WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, is rumored to be developing a new feature that will allow users to share larger files and media with others via their platform.
WhatsApp will soon begin testing the “Media File Size” feature in Argentina, according to WABetaInfo, which would let users transmit media files up to 2GB in size. Initially, the feature will only be available to Beta testers in Argentina.
The feature will soon be accessible to Beta testers in Argentina on both Android and iOS smartphones. For those who aren’t aware, you can only share files up to 100MB at the moment. WhatsApp has begun bringing out multi-device capability to all users, which has been a long time coming.
Users have had access to the feature through WhatsApp’s opt-in beta testing program up until now. According to WABetainfo, the update will be available to iOS users this month, with Android users receiving it next month.
With the new upgrade, you won’t need to keep your primary device connected to the internet to use the platform.
