What is the largest file size on WhatsApp?
Up until recently WhatsApp only allowed you to send files of up to 16 MB, they have now increased it to 100 MB. You can now send all kinds of content: audio files, long videos, multipage PDF documents, compressed ZIP or RAR files and APK apps, among others.
How to send files up to 100 MB on iPhone and Android?
To send large files, first, open the application and access the conversation within which you want to transfer content. Press the clip-shaped icon and select Documents. In this section, you can choose your file from a list of all files ready to transfer. If the file you wish to send is not among them, press Search for other documents to select content that is stored on your phone, or content that is stored in the Google Drive cloud. Select the desired file: if it does not exceed the limit of 100 MB you can send it automatically.
NOTE: If the file is smaller than 100 MB and you still cannot send it, you may need to update your version of WhatsApp and or check that the file type you are trying to send is accepted.
How to send files larger than 100 MB?
