How to Send More Than 10 Photos in Whatsapp Android Using Google Drive

Recently we planned a family trip to see the best destination to visit in December. However, got the opportunity to visit tourist places in south India during October month. We took several family photos. I am a person who loves taking pictures. As usual, I was excited to share all the photos to WhatsApp family group. However, I was able to share only 10 photos at a time. I happened to send those photos to multiple sessions.

Hence, I decided to write an article How to Send More Than 10 Photos in Whatsapp Android. I am sure you are well aware that we can not share more than 10 photos at a time in WhatsApp. I thought of ideas where we can share unlimited photos in WhatsApp. For iPhone users, there is a jailbreaking app called “Cydia“. You can install the app and hack WhatsApp to send ore than 10 photos. But for windows, there are no such apps as for as I know. However, the idea I have shared here is a legal and working concept. It is both WhatsApp and Google drive friendly.

Finally, I tested the option of sharing photos with the help of Google Drive. It worked for me. Please try my idea and let me know how you feel. Your feedbacks are appreciated.

Why Sharing Photos Are Limited to 10 in Whatsapp?

It will be great if you could get the option to share unlimited photos. The main purpose behind this restriction is to stop spamming the chat. Let us think of a scenario where you are bombarded with 1000 photos in a single shot. Similar to a facebook post that contains thousands of photos. I am sure you will not have time and interest to go through each and every photo. This one of the main reason.

As WhatsApp is a fastest and easy growing social network, the business people are looking for an opportunity to market their products. Due to this restriction, we are on the safer side. We must understand one thing very clear that WhatsApp is a personal messaging application and it can not be used for marketing purposes.
