WhatsApp working on a new Document banner
In a previous article shared by WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp news portal reported about WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168 update. The report mentioned the ability to share large documents which were released only to some select beta testers. With the availability of this feature, some users were able to share documents that were up to 2 GB in size.
The feature was gradually rolled out to more people in later updates but some people are still unaware of it. In this current beta update, the platform is developing an in-app banner that would inform users about this ability.
The news source has also shared a screenshot of the feature. In the image, you can get a preview of how the document banner would look when it is released to users. This will be added within the section from where you browse your documents.
When you open the page you can see ‘New! Share documents and files up to 2 GB in size’ written. So you will know that now you can easily send large documents to your contacts.
As mentioned earlier the new Document banner feature is still under development process so it is not available to beta testers. The platform has submitted this update through the Google Play Beta Program with this update the current version reaches 22.214.171.124.
Once the feature is ready, the platform will release it in an upcoming update. At present, there is no news on its final release date. However, if there is any update, you will know through a new post on our website.
