Multi-line filed is still limited to 2048 characters



After the March update the Multi-line limit idea (to increase the initial limit above 2048) satus in the PowerApps Ideas was changed to COMPLETED.


Here's the message from one of moderators:

Hi @Michael_H - we've released updated Data types in the latest updated of the Common Data Service for Apps.

Single line of text : Max 4,000 text characters.
Multiple lines of text : Max 1,048,576 text characters.
For information about this update in geneneral, see :

I checked our apps (CDS based) and I'm still getting the "Value must be at most 2048 characters in length" error when saving long texts.


Has the update mentioned in the moderator's message gone live? If not, when will it be available for the masses.

If it was indeed realesed, then what is the reason for me getting the same error after the update?
