Files up to 100MB can be sent via WhatsApp. But this must change now. In the future, it is clear that this amount of data will increase twenty-fold. Messenger is currently beta testing to increase the limit to 2 GB.
In line with this new amount of data, a new additional comfort is also being tested at the same time. In the future, WhatsApp will show how long it may take to send files. The sender can see how long they still have to wait for the file to reach the WhatsApp servers. The recipient can also see how long it will take to download their content.
According to the news service WABetaInfo, the ability to send up to 2 GB is currently being tested with users in Argentina. However, the fact that WhatsApp is already working on convenience functions related to the new 2GB limit indicates that all users around the world will soon be able to take advantage of the new options.
One thing is for sure: If you want to send huge files via WhatsApp and want to see the time display when larger files are uploaded and downloaded, you need at least version 18.104.22.168 of WhatsApp on Android or version 22.214.171.124 on iPhone. In the browser, time display is supported from version 2.2209.3.
