The file sharing limit on WhatsApp was recently upped to 2GB. This means WhatsApp users can transfer files up to 2GB in size. I'm curious if there is another platform that allows people to exchange such large files, or what size files may be shared on Gmail, Outlook, and other prominent platforms. Here's everything you need to know about,
WhatsApp: Allows up to 2GB of file sharing
WhatsApp just doubled the file transmission limit from 100MB to 2GB. WhatsApp users can share photographs, videos, documents, and other file types in private or group chats.
Gmail: Allows up to 25MB as attachment
Gmail has a maximum attachment size of 25MB. It enables users to exchange any form of file, including images, movies, documents, and so on. Users can also send larger files using Google Drive over the email service.
Telegram: Allows sharing of up to 2GB file size
Telegram was one of the first instant messaging platforms to support up to 2GB file sharing. Users can share photographs, videos, documents, and other media in individual or group discussions.
Microsoft Outlook: Allows up to 20MB as an attachment
Attaching files larger than 20MB are not permitted in Microsoft Outlook. Outlook, like Gmail, allows you to share files as OneDrive attachments.
