WhatsApp is the most popular means of communication and one of the best sharing platforms for the multimedia files of our daily life. People use WhatsApp to send files to their friends and family, regardless of whether they are photos, audio or video files. Many users however wonder if it is possible and how to send large files via WhatsApp and in particular long video files.

All mail and messaging applications put limits on the size of the files that can be sent, and WhatsApp is no exception. The most used messaging app around the world wants its service to work in optimal conditions and this is why it does not allow files over 100 MB to be sent via chat.

However, there are other ways to transmit heavy documents, videos and audios between users of the platform without the entire file having to be uploaded to WhatsApp servers.

The easiest way to share files between WhatsApp users is to use a common platform to store the file and share a link to this platform via WhatsApp. What WhatsApp does not allow is to share documents stored in memory, but to share access to them.

A good example of this is YouTube videos: however many megabytes or gigabytes they occupy, WhatsApp users can share them in chat since the original videos are stored on YouTube servers and the only thing that is sent by the platform is messaging are links. You need to reduce the video size and if needed, you can convert the video into other formats. You need WhatsApp Video Converter by Uniconverter!
