Facebook-owned WhatsApp currently allows users to share images, videos, audio, locations, and documents but is only limited to like PDFs, Word documents, and spreadsheets file formats.
Now, WhatsApp is testing a new feature wherein users can share whatever they want. This new functionality is bound to be a welcome news for its many users.
“You’ll be limited to a maximum file size of 128MB on iOS, 100MB on Android, and 64MB on WhatsApp Web,” GSMArena.com reported.
The company is testing the new feature with a limited group of users and will be gradually rolled out later. Earlier this month, WhatsApp introduced the new album, filter features as well as a reply shortcut for iPhone users.
With the new reply shortcut, users can now simply swipe right on any message and start typing response.
When users send or receive a collection of five or more photos or videos, they will automatically be grouped together as an album, creating a tile display within messages. When users tap on the album, they will see the collection of photos and videos in full screen.
Users can now add filters to photos, videos, and GIFs right within the WhatsApp camera. Just capture or select media that’s already on phone and swipe up to pick a filter. Users can choose from five options including pop, black and white, cool, chrome, and film.
The instant messaging service also rolled out a new pinned chats feature for all Android users. With pinned chats, users can pin up to three of the most important group or individual chats to the top of their chat list for easy access — simply tap and hold a chat, and then tap the pin icon at the top of your screen.
