Now, however, the Facebook-owned company has started testing a new feature that allows users to share any type of file — even an APK — as long as it's under 100MB on Android and 128MB on iOS.

Sure, 100MB is quite a small limit, but we're guessing the restriction is in place to stop users overwhelming WhatsApp's servers with the transfer of humongous files, like ultra-high-resolution videos and computer games.

If you find yourself taking to Dropbox, Google Drive or another platform on your smartphone to send files to people you converse with on a daily basis, you'll likely welcome this feature with open arms.

Step aside, Dropbox. There's a new player in town.
