WhatsApp often comes up with new features. Just a few days ago, we saw that an innovation for transferring channels was coming. Last week, it was revealed that new text formats were on the way.

Now it has been realised that the platform will bring a feature that can make all users happy. This feature, which was noticed by WABetaInfo as usual, has an Airdrop-like function.

You will be able to easily share your files with nearby WhatsApp users by shaking your phone

WhatsApp's new feature is currently in the development process. However, the screenshots give us an idea of how it will work. As you can guess, it will enable file sharing with nearby users. We do not know how far the distance between the two devices will be.

In addition, it is also seen that the feature will work by shaking the phones. WhatsApp stated that the recipient can see the sharing request by opening the application and shaking the phone. It is also seen that the shares will be protected by end-to-end encryption.

This is all we know about the feature. There is no information yet, such as when it will be released, how many files can be shared at the same time. We have to wait to learn the details. File sharing has not even entered beta tests yet. So we can say that it is still a long time to come.

As it is known, it was possible to share files with features such as Aidrop on iOS and Share with Nearby or Quick Share on Android. However, transferring files between Apple devices and Android was not that easy. WhatsApp's new feature may be an alternative to these. This means that more than 2 billion WhatsApp users can easily do cross-platform sharing.
