WhatsApp to Soon Allow Sharing Files up to 2GB in Size

According to a recent report by reputable WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, the messaging app recently started testing up to 2GB size limit for sharing media files for some users.

As per WABetaInfo, the feature is currently available in WhatsApp beta for Android v2.22.8.5, v2.22.8.6, and v2.22.8.7 and WhatsApp beta for iOS v22.7.0.76. Moreover, it has been reportedly rolled out to only a small number of beta testers in Argentinia as of now. Although it is expected to roll out to more users in the future, it is suggested that WhatsApp could also roll it back and may not release it to the stable channel, following the test.

However, the ability to send media files of up to 2GB on WhatsApp will be helpful for users, especially business users, as it will eliminate the need to use other file-sharing platforms to send large media files to users.
