A new WhatsApp beta testing feature is now allowing users to share files up to 2 GB
When it comes to exchanging huge files, WhatsApp isn’t the finest chat application. If you need to transfer 4K videos or huge documents, Telegram is a better solution. Because WhatsApp has a file size restriction of 100MB. However, this is about to change, as WhatsApp is apparently working on expanding the file size restriction.
According to WABetainfo, a regular WhatsApp tipster, WhatsApp is testing the functionality to send files up to 2GB in size. As part of the most recent beta test on both Android and iOS, the functionality has been rolled out to certain users in Argentina.

WhatsApp may roll out the feature of transferring files up to 2 GB to worldwide users soon
Due to WhatsApp’s 100MB file size limit, users who wanted to transfer larger files had to use alternatives such as Telegram. However, if WhatsApp extends the expanded file size limit to everyone in the future, it would finally be on the level with its rival Telegram, which has long enabled users to send files up to 2GB in size.

As previously stated, the 2GB file size limit is presently available exclusively to a small group of beta testers in Argentina. It is unknown when the company intends to expand the rollout to other locations. We’ll keep an eye on it and let you know when it becomes publicly available.
WhatsApp is also working on several new features that have not yet been made available to users. We discovered earlier this month that the app was developing a new polls feature that would allow WhatsApp groups to instantly survey group members. Meanwhile, a dedicated Community tab would help keep track of organizations and communities. It would accept the premise of the camera tab, which is now on the left side.
