WhatsApp has released a new update for iOS that allows users to send original quality media as a file. This feature was previously available to a limited number of users, but it is now rolling out to everyone.

To send original quality media as a file, open the chat share sheet and tap “Document”. Then, tap “Choose Photo or Video” and select the media you want to send. The media will be sent as a file, which means that it will not be compressed and will retain its original quality.

This is a great feature for users who want to share high-quality photos and videos with their friends and family. It is also useful for users who need to share media for work or other purposes.

Additional Information

In addition to the feature to send original quality media as a file, the new update for WhatsApp for iOS also includes the following features:

  • The ability to start voice chats without ringing everyone in large groups
  • New bubbles in chat to help users see missed, ongoing, and completed calls
  • The ability to react to status updates using your avatar

These features are being rolled out gradually to all users. If you don’t have one of these features yet, you should receive it within the next few weeks.


The new update for WhatsApp for iOS is a great improvement for the app. The ability to send original quality media as a file is a much-needed feature, and the other new features are also welcome additions. I encourage all users to update to the latest version of WhatsApp to take advantage of these new features.
