It has been difficult to keep up with the pace at which WhatsApp introduces and tests new features. These clearly improve usability, from improving some features to introducing some totally new ones.

This scenario is repeated now with yet another novelty. It’s simple and very discreet, but it can help when sharing files. Finally it is possible to know how long it takes to arrive.

The last few days have been very rich in news created for WhatsApp. Meta's messaging service has been able to present improvements to its proposal and this has left users very satisfied with what has been revealed.

New options such as disappearing messages or increasing the size of shared files were well received and are now starting to be used. This latest novelty now seems to have a complement to be prepared for users, albeit discreetly.

What was revealed it can be very interesting for those who have slower connections to the Internet or who receive very large files. Soon it will be possible to follow the sharing of a file, being able to see the time remaining and the percentage to which that download is going.

WhatsApp files shared time

This new option is still coming to the WhatsApp testing program, but apparently universally. Thus, it will be possible to see it on Android, iOS and even versions dedicated to the desktop. After being evaluated, it will be generalized to all users.

By being able to see the time left to receive the shared file, the user can adjust their actions and wait, or not, for it to finish. Everything will be in the bubble in the conversation and it will be very simple for users to consult.

This is another interesting option that comes to WhatsApp, especially for those who receive many files, of larger dimensions. It will thus be possible to monitor all these processes, in a controlled and very instantaneous way.
