When a document has been downloaded or uploaded to WhatsApp’s servers, we will be able to see a notification informing us of the progress of the download. According to WABetaInfo, the messaging platform has begun rolling out a new feature that allows users to share media files up to 2GB in size with other users in Argentina. However, this feature is only available to Argentina-based users.
The latest beta versions of WhatsApp for Android, iOS, Web, and Desktop have added the ability to see the estimated arrival time of documents when sharing them, so that you know when the document will be completely downloaded to your phone or desktop.
When a document is uploaded, the same information is displayed. Last month, the feature was made available on WhatsApp Desktop, and this week, some beta testers on Android and iOS were given the opportunity to test it.
WhatsApp users who don’t have access to the feature may want to check with their service provider to see if it is available.
According to a recent report, the “media visibility” option for disappearing chats is likely to be disabled by WhatsApp.
As a result of this new move, disappearing messages will be more secure, and media will be more secure in disappearing chat threads.
