WhatsApp is testing out document sharing ETA
WhatsApp continuously ups its game in terms of features updates. The recently spotted feature on WhatsApp Android beta client v184.108.40.206 gives a peek into an upcoming feature that shows ETA on downloading any documents shared.
It adds both the percentage downloaded and the time it will take (aka ETA) for the document to completely download on your device.
This feature is currently available on WhatsApp beta editions with v220.127.116.11 on iOS and v2.22.811 on Android devices. It is currently available for v2.2209.3 of WhatsApp desktop.
Apparently, WhatsApp is testing out a feature that lets it share files up to 2GB which isn’t something it can do for now. The test is ongoing for selected users in Argentina.
The users will get the ETA on the downloads and uploads alike, giving them an exact idea of how much time it will take for the document to upload or download on the platform.
WhatsApp is expanding with a series of upcoming features
According to the various updates on its beta clients, the instant messaging app is currently testing a feature that lets it playback voice messages in the background. Another feature in the testing phase is emoji reactions and a new camera interface that will replace the interface WhatsApp rolled out recently.
It remains to be seen exactly when these features will be available on WhatsApp (stable version) so you will have to keep a tab on this website to know more.
