Today, WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging applications among users. To maintain this enthusiasm, Meta does not hesitate to unveil regular updates and add new, often highly anticipated features.
So, WhatsApp recently added the ability to pin messages to the top of your conversations. This feature comes in extremely handy, especially in group conversations. According to WABetaInfo, a reliable source when it comes to WhatsApp, the Meta application would soon allow files to be shared with nearby devices.
On WhatsApp , sharing files has never been easy
Nearby file sharing is not a revolution. Apple and Google have been offering this possibility for a while now. But being able to share files via Bluetooth from WhatsApp should put everyone in agreement. Indeed, the instant messaging application is used by iOS fans as well as Android fans.
For the moment, this feature is available in beta on Android for a lucky few. The final version should soon be deployed on a larger scale. Thus, it should land on everyone's smartphones in the coming months.
In addition to limiting the size of the backup of your conversations, this new functionality will prevent clog them up with photos, videos and other files. Of course, WhatsApp provides end-to-end encryption in order to respect the personal data of its users.
According to WABetaInfo, using this new feature will be extremely simple. Indeed, users will have to open the “People Nearby” window open in order to receive or send files. Users will have plenty of time to configure their visibility. If you ever deal with someone who is not in your contacts, your phone number will be hidden to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Also, it will not be possible to receive unsolicited files. Which is always a good thing.
With such a crucial feature as the ability to share files with nearby devices, WhatsApp is expected to delight its users. Much more universal than what Apple and Google offer, this new functionality could allow Meta to assert WhatsApp's position. It remains to be seen when this new feature will be deployed. But it shouldn't be long…
