WhatsApp finally lets you send any type of file

WhatsApp

WhatsApp is now rolling out a new update for its messaging app that finally gives users the ability to send any type of file that they want. This feature was first seen in the beta channel last month.

That means that, among other types of files, users can now share items with extensions like APK (Android apps), DOC (Word files), XLS (Excel files), and so on. It is not the only change in the latest version of WhatsApp though.

So, what else is new? Well, based on this changelog, WhatsApp also gains a number of design tweaks related to audio and video calls.

Users now also have the ability to swipe up in the in-app camera interface to see their photo and video gallery, and tap and hold to select text to bold, italicize and strikethrough while in chats.

Because the update is rolling out, and WhatsApp hasn't made the latest version of the app available to everyone at once, it may take some time before it comes to your device.

To download WhatsApp on Android, hit this link for the Google Play listing. On iOS, you can grab it from the App Store.
