WhatsApp has received a new update that introduces a convenient content sharing feature for its iPhone users. The new v2.20.40 version of the instant messaging app now provides recommendations for WhatsApp contacts directly in the sharing sheet menu. The sleek little touch enables users to quickly share content with their WhatsApp contacts by clicking on any name in the list and pressing send. The update has been introduced via the stable channel, and the WhatsApp latest version is now available to iPhone users worldwide, including India.
The WhatsApp v2.20.40 changelog on the App Store says “On iOS 13, your WhatsApp contacts will appear as suggestions in the share sheet when you share content from another app”.
Previously, the share sheet just had the WhatsApp icon that had to be tapped to open the sharing menu of the device and to submit the material to contacts. After the update, WhatsApp contacts appear at the top of the share sheet in a row. All you have to do is just tap on the WhatsApp contact. For example, if you’re sharing a picture, just tap a WhatsApp contact, it opens the local sharing window with the contact where you can crop/ edit the photo and hit send it.
In case you are yet to receive the update, you can install the latest WhatsApp update on your iPhone from the Google App Store here. Earlier this month, WhatsApp on iPhone received the highly awaited dark mode, has been available for quite some time on the Android beta channel.
