WhatsApp now lets all users on iOS and Android share any kind of file they want

Last month, WhatsApp began testing new functionality among its beta users, allowing them to send and receive any file type, rather than just images and documents.

Now, that feature has gone live for iOS and Android users with the latest WhatsApp update on those platforms. The ability to share any kind of file also works on the WhatsApp Web client.

There is a maximum file size limit to be aware of, however - and confusingly, there are different limits depending on the client you use. iOS users can share files up to 128MB in size, while those on Android are limited to 100MB.

As Engadget points out, WhatsApp is also removing compression for sent photos, so you can send full-resolution images without worrying about how they'll appear for the recipient. The next WhatsApp update will include emoji search, which is currently being tested by beta users.
