WhatsApp tweets sharing size limit about the file transfer size, Telegram takes a witty dig.
WhatsApp’s one of the best features that it allows you to share large-sized files. The instant messaging platform will enable users to send documents up to the only 100MB in size. WhatsApp, it’s a recent tweet, was promoting this feature to its followers and pitched the app as an alternative to an email.
Telegram, another best end-to-end encryption-based on a much reliable instant messaging platform, was quick to take a witty dig at the WhatsApp.
Whatsapp Sharing Size Limit
“Need to send an email, but the file is too large? Try using WhatsApp, where you can transfer files of up to 100 MB”. WhatsApp said in one of its tweets.
To which, Telegram responded, “Need to send a message/ files, but the file is too large for other messengers? Try using Telegram, where you can send files of up to 1.5 GB.”
On the ripostes, a fan twitted WhatsApp needs to step up their game as Telegram was 50 years ahead with features. “Ability to make make your theme, delete messages without telling the world, live emoji, and stickers, cloud storage, etc. Compared to Telegram, WhatsApp was still in 2006. Step Up!” wrote the user.
Then, the Telegram came up with another witty reply, “We’re only 50 years ahead of Whatsapp because we invented the time machine. Though It’s not ready to release in an update though – too many paradoxes.”
As far as the file size limit is concerned, the instant messaging platforms do offer a higher size limit than the regular email attachments. For instance, Gmail can supports files up to 25MB size for an email attachment, and above that, users are told to share the document via Google Drive.
That said, it’s not the first time Telegram has taken a dig at Facebook-owned WhatsApp messaging platform. Telegram founder Pavel Durov earlier this year slammed WhatsApp for not offering enough security features. He also criticized WhatsApp for “deliberately obfuscates their apps’ binaries” and making it difficult for anyone to scrutinize the platform.
“WhatsApp has a consistent history – from zero encryption at its foundation to a succession of security issues only suitable for surveillance purposes. Looking back, there hasn’t been a single day in WhatsApp’s 10-year journey when this service even got secured,” he wrote in a blog post titled “Why WhatsApp Will Never Be Secure.”
