Telegram responded to WhatsApp's tweet to promote its service, but instead of saying something directly, the company compared its own file transfer limit with that of other messengers (including WhatsApp).
"Need to send a message but the attachment is too large for other messengers? Try using Telegram instead, where you can send files of up to 1.5 GB," the tweet read.
1.5GB transfer limit is definitely more useful
While WhatsApp's update will come handy for existing users of the service, it may not do much good given how many GBs modern-day transfers - documents, RAW videos, and more - can take.
A few years ago, this increase might have made some sense, but now, it is nothing compared to what other players have on offer, including Telegram's 1.5GB limit.
