How to Increase File Size Limit on WhatsApp

The old days of texting passed long back and IM applications have taken over. Of all these IM apps WhatsApp is the one leading the way, with over 600 Million active users, which is no doubt an amazing number for an app. Not only unlimited texts could be transferred through WhatsApp, but it also offers its users to exchange Music, Videos, Pictures and even your present locations, and all this for free. It has marked milestones and supports multiple platforms including Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows and BlackBerry.

You’re now not only limited to send short videos, but also movies or videos of larger size. The process requires a rooted Android smartphone to make a simple edit, in the specific xml file for the mod to work. The process is confirmed to be working by several users including me, but the limit may reset back to 16 MB after a few reboots (may be after a server update occurrence or the app update), but you can change it back anytime using the same method that will be performed below.

Altering WhatsApp related files may mess your app if done wrong. Make sure of what you’re doing and do it correctly to avoid any errors. DroidViews or any of its members shall not be held responsible if you screw up your app or device. Understand and perform everything at your own risk.
