You will soon be able to securely share files across Android and iOS devices using WhatsApp. The latest WhatsApp Beta for iOS brings evidence of signaling the addition of file-sharing capability.

WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is crafting an offline file-sharing tool for Android and iOS. The feature is slated to allow users to share encrypted files with others nearby by scanning the QR Code.

Notably, the existence of this feature was first spotted for the Android app in April this year. The inclusion of this tool in the iOS app indicates that WhatsApp has progressed in development.

WhatsApp Nearby Sharing

WhatsApp for iOS could require the recipient to scan a QR code to trigger the file transfer. The previous finding for the Android app revealed that file sharing would be possible with any nearby WhatsApp user.

While WhatsApp for Android appeared months ago, the iOS-inspired sharing method might be deployed across platforms. The QR scanning functionality is comparatively more secure and the option to share with any nearby device.

Android phones have Quick Share and iOS-powered iPhones have AirDrop. WhatsApp explored beyond as part of simplifying the file-sharing experience across platforms. The approach would significantly uplevel the overall user experience.
