WhatsApp now lets you share any file type

Now whatsapp suport any document as attachment

However, with the latest update, users can send any files including apk files and zip archives.

This time, the update for WhatsApp brings certain features that change the way you use the app. It was just most recently that Whatsapp has allowed you to send GIFs to your contacts. All you need to do is open and tap attachment to send the said documents. Long press one file and select the others. According to a report in Engadget on Thursday, users could now share files up to 100MB size but it was rumored that the iPhone users could send slightly larger files.

Additionally, you'll be able to see all of your pictures and videos in the in-app camera by swiping up and if you're sending lots of photos at once, they'll now be grouped into a gallery that only displays five images with the last thumbnail displaying how many additional photos have been sent. Further, the Facebook-owned messaging app has rolled out chat formatting feature.

So does this update elevate WhatsApp into the peer-to-peer file-sharing leagues, whereby it can be used by creatives to share 4K videos with colleagues?
