"WhatsApp is starting a small test in the last few days, and some people can now share media files up to 2GB! Unfortunately, this is only available in Argentina and it is limited to a certain number of beta testers. In fact, we don’t even know if WhatsApp is planning to roll out the same feature to more people in the future, since this is a test. WhatsApp may even roll back the changes by restoring the previous limit after the test: only time will tell," WABetaInfo said in a report. (MINT_PRINT)
