In the meantime whatsapp is considered to be the best or one of the simplest platforms through which files could easily be shared to different parts of the world within a very short period of time. This was as a result of its simple function of direct file upload from files directory to the user’s favorite menu. But unfortunately, this sharing feature was limited to a certain size by the whatsapp team as such the file to be shared has to be in consistent with that limitation, that is to say it must be below or equals to that limited size. The endowed size for now is 16MB for which in this tutorial i’ll show you how to stretch it to upto 2030MB(2.03GB), with that you can be able to share not only video clips but also some movies that haven’t exceeded that stretched size..

*Make sure that you follow the steps to be outlined below with caution for it might led to some errors if mishandled.
*Do not blame DEENDABAI for your mistakes….
