Now You Can Send All Types of Files On WhatsApp: Official Update

Story Highlights

  • New WhatsApp for Android update available for all
  • Brings support for sharing all file types via WhatsApp
  • The new update also revamps WhatsApp call screen

WhatsApp has been on a roll this year, adding feature upon feature to the world’s most popular messaging app to make it more appealing to the users. The company is continuing the streak, and has added support for all types of file transfers (including archives) as well as shared media bundling in the stable version of the Android app. These features had been under testing in WhatsApp beta for Android for some time now. However, users still continue to wait for the final release of the message recall feature that has been leaked several times already.

To use the new feature, WhatsApp users on Android can head to Google Play to download the latest version of the app. Apart from support for all file types and media bundling, the latest WhatsApp update also enables text formatting in the chat. When typing text in a chat window, users can now tap and hold to select the text to easily bold, strikethrough, or italicise. This feature was also available earlier to beta users.

Share Any File WhatsApp

WhatsApp media bundling

Several beta users last month also started receiving new shared media bundling feature. WhatsApp users will now be able to send a bunch of photos to their friends, who will receive them bundled as an album and not as before, one after another. With the new update, once a user opens an album, all images are shown on a single page. The feature also indicates that WhatsApp will give more room for shared photos. This WhatsApp feature was rolled out to iPhone users last month, and refines the sharing of multiple photos on the platform.

The new WhatsApp for Android update also brings minor change to the WhatsApp call screen where users will now have to swipe up instead of sideways to pick up a call. The revamped WhatsApp call screen was also spotted last month.
