You might already know that WhatsApp doesn’t let you send large files to someone. As a result, if you want to send a 4K video or larger document, you need to use another app. If we talk about how much data can you send to someone at once, WhatsApp has set the limit to 100MB. However, this is about to change pretty soon as the company is looking to increase the file size limit.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is testing an option to allow users to send files up to 2GB in size, currently. What’s more, the company has rolled out this feature to some users in Argentina as a part of the latest beta test on both Android and iOS. We will soon get to see the release of the features to other users as well.

Obviously, the current 100MB limit is kind of annoying for users, it means that you cannot even send good quality video. Therefore, users are not left with any choice other than to look for alternatives while sending files. However, users won’t need to look any further once WhatsApp increases the file-sharing size limit. Alongside, helping the users the company will be helping itself to be on par with its competition, including Telegram.
