WhatsApp has been the most popular messaging app ever since its launch. However, the app has become even more popular and powerful after the app was acquired by Facebook some years back. WhatsApp has been constantly adding new features to its app in order to give its users the best facilities. We have recently seen the addition of Instagram-like Status feature on WhatsApp for which the company was criticized a bit. However, WhatsApp heard the feedback from its users and quickly brought the old status feature to the app as well.
Now, we have received some reports that suggest that WhatsApp is adding some more features to its app which have been highly asked about from the fans of the social messaging app. As soon as the users install the new update to the app, the users can send, PDFs, spreadsheets, Powerpoint slides, Word documents and other files quickly and easily through WhatsApp which was not possible earlier in the app. This feature is under testing and is with a limited number of users as the rollout is slow for now. Nothing is known about when the rollout is going to hit the devices but is expected to happen soon in the coming days. The maximum file size that the user can send is 100MB on Android and is limited to 128MB on iOS and while it is 64GB on WhatsApp Web. This limit is set because sharing of the bigger files might cause some problems in load maintenance through the app or web client.
However, if you would like to test out the latest updates from WhatsApp and don’t want to wait for the features to be rolled out in the wider rollout. You can opt-in for the WhatsApp beta program by going to the Google Play Store and you will see an option to join the beta program for WhatsApp. However, do note that the beta version of WhatsApp may be unstable for daily use so please opt-in for the beta program if you understand the risks.
