WhatsApp last year in March extended its support for PDF files and now the chat app has gone a step ahead by allowing to share all types of files including apk، txt، zip and documents on the messaging app.The update is available for Android users، India today reported.

WaBetaInfo، the fan site of WhatsApp، last month had reported of this features first. The users can now share all type of files on WhatsApp. Sharing large files earlier was a lengthy task. Users has to upload the file either on cloud or Google drive to share it with others. The new update will allow users to share large files with just one tap.

The process to attach files is similar to we send other files on the app. There's a paper clip icon in the text box، tap on that and then select document. WhatsApp currently has different file size limit across different platforms. The maximum file size for Android is 100MB، iOS is 128MB، for Windows it is 104.86MB and for web it is 64MB. With the new update، the files can be shared without any compression. This means that you can now share files and videos without any compression retaining the original quality of the file.

WhatsApp has several great plans under its hood at present. The chat app is reportedly working on a recallrevoke button and may bring it soon to the users. This is the most hotly anticipated feature of WhatsApp as it can prove to be a life saviour for those who often send text messages in the heat of the moment and seconds after repent for sending it. Or even those embarrassing official texts where you accidentally you misspell few words and send it to your boss. The recallrevoke button will allow users to unsend such text messages within a stipulated time frame. There are reports that it will allow to recall messages under 5 minutes of sending text and once revoked، the message will be deleted from the both the ends. The feature has been spotted on Windows phone in beta phase and may launch soon to all.
