WhatsApp is a platform that is often used for sharing video clips, music files, and photos within groups and contacts that live far away from us. Do you also face this issue like whenever you try to send a video file to your friend it does not look exactly like it looks on your phone? The reason is, the files are compressed before sending it to servers, in this way the file loses the quality.
Furthermore, there are some video clips which are large in size such as 30 to 60 MB files. Meanwhile, WhatsApp has only a general upload limit of 16 MB. Additionally, the high-quality file comes within the average of 5-minute MP3 files of 320 kbps bitrate.
But, the good news is that you can send large video files over 16 MB. Through this blog, I have covered the ways from which you can send a large video file on WhatsApp.
Please note that the below-mentioned methods only work with the iOS version. Meanwhile, the receiver might use any platform like iOS, Windows or Android.
