Whatsapp: 2 GB instead of 100 MB soon for file attachments? First tests running






Whatsapp is apparently planning a massive increase in the limit for sent files. So far, only 100 MB is allowed.

There is good news for all Whatsapp users who like to send attachments often. Since 2019, such attachments can have a maximum size of 100 megabytes. Far too little if the user wants to send a 4K video or a high-resolution image. But that could change, because Whatsapp now allows you to send files up to 2 gigabytes in size. But there is still one major limitation…

As WABetaInfo reports, the file transfer limit has so far only been activated for a very small circle of beta testers in Argentina. These selected beta testers can now send any files directly via Whatsapp, which may have a maximum size of 2 gigabytes. And this regardless of whether they use the Whatsapp beta on Android or iOS. The innovation was observed under Whatsapp Beta for Android from version 2.22.8.5 and under Whatsapp Beta for iOS from version 22.7.0.76.

Whatsapp normally displays an error message as soon as an attempt is made to send a file over 100 megabytes in size. The beta testers who are allowed to test the new function now receive the following error message informing them of the new limit: “This document is too large. You can send documents with a size of up to 2 gigabytes.”

It is unclear whether Whatsapp plans to introduce this change in beta versions of Whatsapp in other countries. Perhaps there will soon be experiments in different regions with different limitations.
