WhatsApp has long been used as a medium to share photos, videos, and even Word docs. And for those files that weren’t supported on it, users tend to go the long route by uploading them on cloud. There are several other ways to get your unsupported file from one sender to another, but it appears WhatsApp no longer wants you to use those.
The company is said to be testing support for all types of file transfers (including archives) on Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone with a limited number of users, removing any hindrance of file sharing on WhatsApp.
WABetaInfo spotted this roll out, and claims that it’s a phased one. While some users in countries like India, Japan, Kuwait, Sri Lanka have reported that the support has arrived, there are several other users that do not see it still. However, What’sApp can be expected to roll this feature out to everyone in the due course of time.
The file sharing limit is at 128MB on iOS, 64MB on Web, and 100MB on Android, WABetaInfo reports.
This new feature will now allow you to share video in a wide variety of formats, MP3 songs, or even APK files for that matter on WhatsApp. They’ll also allows you to send uncompressed photos and videos without compromising on resolution, but the ceiling limit is too low for high-quality video clips of sufficient length. Presumably, this cap has been enforced to not overwhelm WhatsApp’s servers with huge files.
Undo Sent Messages on WhatsApp
WhatsApp is also tipped to be working on a recall feature that allows you to undo a message sent to someone, and is also working on bringing the new Status feature to WhatsApp Web.
These features seems to be very interesting & useful for every user.
