TL;DR

WhatsApp is reportedly testing a 2GB file size limit for sharing. This feature is currently limited to beta users in Argentina.

One area where Telegram is undoubtedly superior to WhatsApp is its sharing file size limit, which allows users to send files up to 2 GB to each other. Meanwhile, WhatsApp reaches a maximum of 100 MB for shared files.

Fortunately, WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is now testing the ability to share files up to 2 GB. The WhatsApp tipter says this test is currently taking place in Argentina on both Android (version 2.22.8.5 and above) and iOS (version 22.7.0.76) beta apps. Check out two screenshots below showing the old and new limits.

It is unknown if this increased file size limit will be rolled out to beta users in other countries. But we suspect it will eventually come to more users in the coming weeks and months.

Either way, this would be a big improvement over the current 100MB limit, which also puts it in line with arch-rival Telegram.
