Users of WhatsApp for iOS may soon be able to share files of up to 2GB

Following the release of WhatsApp for iOS beta version, which finally adds support for iOS 15, the firm began testing the ability to share files up to 2GB in size.

According to WABetaInfo, a modest test is being carried out in Argentina, and certain users can transfer media files of up to 2GB. At the moment, WhatsApp users may only transfer media files up to 100MB in size.

Telegram, WhatsApp’s rival, has allowed users to share up to 2GB since 2020. However, WABetaInfo reports that the firm intends to expand the availability of this service to more people in the future. However, since this is a test, WhatsApp may reverse the modifications when the trial is over.

Instagram, another Meta-owned platform, recently tested a new version of the Close Friends features called Selected People in Brazil. After six months, the corporation concluded it wasn’t worth the modification and reverted the functionality to its previous state.

Aside from that, it’s worth noting that WhatsApp is working on at least two additional big features: Reactions and multi-device compatibility 2.0.

WhatsApp already allows select Android users to test the Reactions feature in beta. Multi-device compatibility 2.0, on the other hand, would allow users to use another smartphone with the same WhatsApp account, as well as unlock an iPad app, a feature that many users have requested.
