WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps on social media platforms today. WhatsApp has now improved file-sharing features by expanding the list of supported files that users can send to one another, and it allows users to send files that are up to 100MB in size.
The file size also applies to images and Whatsapp also updated the interface, allowing the chat to look more "clean" by displaying images that you send to one another in the form of an in-app gallery. This feature on the latest WhatsApp update eliminates the problem of clutter and organises the images in a small grid and initially shows no more than five images.
The latest update to WhatsApp also introduces a minor redesign of the call screen that is now more minimalistic and requires you to swipe up when you receive a WhatsApp call. The service now seemingly allows users to share all conventional file types and even though its "Attach" still categorise the likes of APKs and ZIPS as documents, it can at least be used to send files, as long as it is not larger than 100MB. Users that use the iOS version of WhatsApp are somewhat more flexible as they are able to share files that are up to 1288MB in size.
It is still unclear whether Android users will eventually see that limit increase and the WhatsApp update still needs to go global, but it is good to see that WhatsApp is allowing users to share all different types of files.
