Whatsapp lifts file sharing limit on Android version

Posted 14 July 2017 16:35 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Android users can now send all kinds of files to others with Whatsapp. The Facebook owned popular messaging app has released an update that make this possible. The iOS version of the app doesn’t have the feature yet.

Previously, users could only send a limited number of file types such as photos, videos, audio and documents. That limit has now been lifted so it’s now also possible to send .ZIP files. Sending these files is possible through the documents icon in the same menu as where photos and videos can be shared.

The maximum size of a file is 100 MB on Android. It’s unclear when the feature will also come to the iOS version of the app.

The update for Android also adds the possibility to make text in the text input field to be bold or italic. Users can change the text by touching the text after which an option menu appears.
