Users may soon share files on WhatsApp without internet

Meta’s WhatsApp is rolling out innovative features, as reported by Business Standard. Beta testing reveals a groundbreaking capability to share files such as photos and videos with nearby users, even without internet connectivity. This feature fosters seamless communication in areas with limited connectivity, enhancing user experience.

Additionally, WhatsApp is reportedly integrating an in-app dialer, simplifying communication further. While the file-sharing feature is in beta testing, the in-app dialer has been spotted in early versions but is not yet available in beta.

According to WABetaInfo, users must be in close proximity for the file-sharing feature to function. Files are transmitted through a locally-created network once users locate each other. Notably, Meta ensures user privacy by allowing them to revoke file-sharing permissions at any time and maintains end-to-end encryption for shared files, similar to messages.

This comes in the wake of Meta’s recent introduction of its AI assistant, Meta AI, across WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger. Mark Zuckerberg, Meta’s CEO, announced this addition on April 18. Furthermore, WhatsApp recently introduced a custom sticker creation option on iOS, enabling users to craft unique visual combinations by editing elements from their camera roll.

With features like personalized stickers and innovative file-sharing methods, WhatsApp continues to evolve, offering users enhanced communication tools and experiences.
