WhatsApp now lets you share any file type

WhatsApp now lets you share any file type

Open the Contact to which you want to send the file.

Whatsapp in its most recent update has modified its sharing capabilities. It'll take a while to upload the file depending on its size. As of now, one could send media files, .vcf contacts, PDF files and also location details.

On the top of files that could already be shared like doc, csv, ppt, txt, the users can also now share other files like zip and even apks.

Moving on, users will be able to bundle files together and send it others.

The popular messaging platform, WhatsApp has rolled out a new update for the Android platform, which brings various new features such as any file transfer and media bundling. So, while typing text in a chat, one can tap and hold to select the text to easily bold, strikethrough, or italicise it.

According to a report in Engadget on Thursday, users could now share files up to 100MB size but it was rumoured that the iPhone users could send slightly larger files. You can now directly share existing photos and videos from WhatsApp's inbuilt camera tool. Instead of swiping to the left or right to pick up or reject a call the user will now have to swipe up to pick or reject calls.

After Whatsapp was acquired by Facebook, most of the users were paranoid due to privacy issues which lead to a little decline initially, but soon the trends picked up for whatsapp. Its prime competitor is its brother Messenger. The new update can be downloaded from Android's Play Store. Last year, Whatsapp introduced video-calling and made it a part of WhatsApp's features, although it was much expected it still got a lot of appreciation and we witnessed increased user-following as well.
