In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, we shared a screenshot of a new feature under development: the in-app document banner. By presenting the banner, WhatsApp wants to announce that the ability to share documents up to 2GB in size is available, making it easier to share large documents. Note that this feature is not new as WhatsApp has already released it last year along with the ability to add up to 512 people to groups.
Thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update, we discovered that a similar feature is planned to be released in a future update of the iOS app:
As you can see in this screenshot, we don’t have an in-app banner that announces the new feature on the iOS app, but a similar feature is under development: a presentation sheet. As noted within the presentation sheet, it is possible to share documents up to 2GB in size, and a Wi-Fi connection is recommended in order to share those large documents quickly. In addition, when you share larger files or documents on WhatsApp using a mobile data connection, the amount of data consumed can quickly add up so we suggest using a Wi-Fi connection to avoid similar situations and save mobile data.
The presentation sheet that announces the ability to share larger documents is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app. As always, we’re going to share any additional detail by publishing a new article on this website.
