By : |September 18, 2019 0

We all are using one or more than one messaging apps to be connected with our friends and family. WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat and WeChat are top 5 messaging apps and each has some sort of unique feature.

WhatsApp is the most popular one followed by Telegram, Snapchat, Facebook Messenger and WeChat. We use these apps to share our life moments videos and pictures. But sometimes we feel restricted when we try to share a large video or any other file over these messaging apps as each platform has a file size limit.

Recently, a cold war, between WhatsApp and Telegram, has begun for the file size. As users are always eager to get more, these platforms understand their requirements as well. Still, in the present time Telegram is offering the maximum file size limit, then who is behind and how much, let’s find out.


WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app because of its unique features including video/audio calls, even with multiple people. Soon the platform is going to announce payment feature as well which is currently available in select countries and create Status/Stories as well. But the maximum file size limit is 100 MB, which is quite low.


Telegram offers some other unique features like dark mode, secret message, and doesn’t even let the user get details of other people on the group or platform without their consent. The platform recently announced increased file size limit of 1.5 GB which is massive in comparison to other messaging apps.

Facebook Messenger

Facebook messenger can be used to make calls and chats. It comes with a capacity of 100 MB file size, but if you are using Facebook workplace then its will go down by 25 MB only.


The most interesting chat app doesn’t allow you to send images and videos straight from your camera roll. It comes with a video length limit of 10 sec and allows only 2.5 MB of video.


Snapchat is probably is least bothered about the file size limit thus offering only 2.5 MB limit. WeChat also falls in a similar category line where Facebook is and offers a file size limit of 25 MB only.
