WhatsApp has released a new feature that allows you to send larger documents such as text or PDF files. “You want to send an e-mail, but the attachment is too big? Try WhatsApp, where you can send files up to 100 MB, “announced the chat service.
WhatsApp: Users compare feature with offer from competitor telegram
Most users are not very enthusiastic about the function. Especially because the WhatsApp competitor Telegram already offers the sending of documents. Even more, Telegram can send much larger files. Up to 1.5 gigabytes, 15 times the size of WhatsApp, the documents can be at Telegram.
Many critics pointed out that with Telegram significantly larger files are possible. “I think WhatsApp employees use the Telegram app to send files,” joked a user on Twitter.
WhatsApp users on new feature: “A bad joke”
Another user mocked, “100 MB is a bad joke these days. You have copied your last features from Telegram. Why do not you also copy the file size of 1.5 GB? “
