Last month, WhatsApp had rolled out the ability to send any file types across its beta users updated to version 2.17.236 of the app on Android and now after being tested, the ability is being rolled out to all the users of the app in the public update.
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.
Since the service has gained popularity, it has become a go-to spot for people to share music, photos and videos with their loved ones over messages as well as important documents with colleagues.
The new feature will add more value to the app as it makes sharing files easier. Earlier, uploading an unsupported format on cloud and sharing the link via WhatsApp was an option.
But this update will make sure that the user doesn’t have to exit the application in order to be able to share files with their contacts.
