WhatsApp to increase their sending file size in a very large number.
Unlike the USA, in all other parts of the World, sharing a video file or a load of pictures through WhatsApp is often one of the simplest and quickest ways to share media with friends or family. WhatsApp isn’t that popular in the USA due to certain reasons. (Will talk)
But there are certain limitations and App will not allow increasing that limit.
This can be a frequent occurrence since WhatsApp caps the size of attachments sent through messages at 100MB.
However, messaging app could one day allow files of up to 2GB to be sent – according to some pretty strong rumours.
The WhatsApp-watching blog WABetaInfo suggests a small test is being carried out in Argentina where some users are being allowed to share media files up to 2GB in size.
According to WABetaInfo, this trial could be rolled out to more users in future.
But, on the other hand, it’s not guaranteed that all 2+ billion WhatsApp users will get the option eventually. Since it’s just a trial, WhatsApp could decide not to pursue it and roll the feature back at a later date. Not just WhatsApp, but also every Meta app will not offer a fully functional app to everyone across the World. Instagram Reels, Instagram Music, Facebook Reels and Facebook Music Stories and many functions are not available for underdeveloped countries yet. Alike electronic manufacturers, food companies and many others, tech giants are cutting off their key functions from certain regions.
WhatsApp has several other irons in the fire at the moment and, for example, is still working to bring full cross-device functionality through as well as the option to migrate chats from iOS to Android.
Putting our sceptical hats on for a moment, it seems unlikely given the trial size that WhatsApp will be letting us send 2GB files around with abandon any time soon.
In the meantime, there are always the likes of WeTransfer and, as mentioned earlier, Telegram for sending those larger files.
However, Meta experienced a few major blackouts during the last couple of years period in the middle of the pandemic. Many analyzers pointed out that having all apps under one roof may occur an extra load pressure on hardware and human resources as well. Hope this new development to compete with stakeholders would go smoothly without much pressure on the entire meta system.
