In January 2017, we shared a tweet about a new limit when sending media. In particular, we announced it was possible to share up to 30 media by using the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.17.9 update. We are happy to inform you that WhatsApp has made another major advancement in this area starting today: thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update, some beta testers are now able to share up to 100 media!
As you can see in this screenshot, in order to check if the increased media sharing feature is enabled for your WhatsApp account, simply attempt to select more than 30 media in the media picker within the app. In the case the feature is available, you will finally be able to share up to 100 media otherwise, you need to wait for a future update of the app.
In our opinion, this feature is really useful as users can finally share entire albums by making it easier to share memories and moments with their friends and family. In addition, we think that the new limit helps prevent users from selecting the same photo or video more than once in case they need to send a lot of media files.
The ability to share up to 100 media within your chats is available for some beta testers and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming days.
