Tired of dealing with file sharing on WhatsApp? You don’t have to worry anymore! WhatsApp is working on a new sharing feature that will simplify file transfer between users.
If you are curious about what the feature is and how it will work, here are the details you need to know…
What is WhatsApp’s new file-sharing feature, and how will it work?
This feature, revealed by WaBetaInfo, will allow you to share files quickly and securely, just like Bluetooth and AirDrop. However, there is a change! You will need to shake your phone first to use this feature. Yes, you read that right! When you shake your phone, WhatsApp detects it and sends a sharing request to the other party.
And don’t worry about security! The files you send will be encrypted end-to-end, so you can share them with peace of mind. Also, if you share with a number not in your contacts, your phone number will not be shared with the other party.
Now, you may be wondering which file formats this feature will support. We don’t have any information about this yet, but it is likely to support a wide variety of formats, especially photos, and videos.
The feature is expected to roll out for Android first, but don’t worry, iOS users – it’s coming to your platform soon!
Here it is! WhatsApp‘s new sharing feature will change the game! Stay tuned for more updates, and get ready to share like never before!
