Gone are the days when you had to send photos and videos from your recent trip in batches because of WhatsApp’s limit of only letting you share 30 of them at a time. A new update to the messaging app has upped that limit to 100 while introducing a few other changes.
When sharing media, you can now select up to 100 files before sharing them with your contacts or groups. What’s more, you can now add captions to any document you share with them as well.
The lack of this feature was pretty frustrating for those who’d send multiple documents that weren’t named properly. Thanks to the feature, they needn’t go back and change the names of those files but rather add captions to them.
Apart from this, there’s support for longer group subjects and descriptions as well. WhatsApp’s changelog on the Play Store even mentions the new ability to create personalized avatars and use them as stickers and profile photos.
A steady stream of fresh features continues to flow into WhatsApp. Only a few months ago, a major privacy trait was added to the app in the form of the ability to hide your online status from selected contacts.
Among the features that are apparently being brewed right now is the facility to send images in their original quality.
WhatsApp’s compression severely affects the quality of images that are shared across the platform and forces people to send them as document files in order to keep the quality intact. Moreover, not many people are aware of this workaround as well.
If such a feature does arrive in the future, it will certainly please WhatsApp users around the world.
