  • Latest WhatsApp Update Lets You Share Any File You Want

Before this update, WhatsApp only supported a few file formats for music, documents, images, but following the update, users will be able to send across any file extension directly on WhatsApp.

This time, the update for WhatsApp brings certain features that change the way you use the app.

Open the Contact to which you want to send the file. It'll take a while to upload the file depending on its size. This means, If you send or receive multiple photos or video in a chat, they will be automatically be grouped together as an album, creating a tile display within your messages.

Among the other features that were added with the application include the ability to change the text there and then by long pressing on the text.

WhatsApp users are finally getting the stable version for all type of file transfers.

The new file sharing functionality is the part of WhatsApp's latest update which is now available for Android and iOS. WhatsApp also recently added a lot of features to the iOS users, and even more recently it eased out the text formatting for its users.

While using the in-app camera, the user can now swipe up to get a preview of all the photos and videos for easy uploads. 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.

WhatsApp has started to transform more into cross-platform messaging service with support added for desktop users a year ago through WhatsApp Web and standalone apps for MacOS and Windows operating systems. Just go over to the Google Play and check, if you have the update for your application.
