Using WhatsApp you can share a lot of documents, but there are some limitations.
Actually it’s possible to share these file types only: csv, doc, docx, pdf, ppt, pptx, rtf, txt, xls and xlsx.. but following this guide you will be able to share any file or photos/videos without be compressed.
As reported by a tweet in the WABetaInfo Twitter account some weeks ago, WhatsApp is going to use Facebook servers to manage the connection.
Sources told to CNBC that “Facebook is planning to move WhatsApp off IBM’s public cloud”, that means the old infastructure will be completely abandoned.
In the 2.17.5 update, WhatsApp enabled the Status feature, bringing in the same moment the Status and Camera tabs.
This poll shows how many WhatsApp users want the Contacts tab back.
WhatsApp doesn’t seem to be interested to bring back the Contacts tab, but something will change.
As announced on Twitter, WhatsApp is working on a new Status section in order to add back the Contacts list.
In this new Status section, we can also notice a new icon next to “No recent updates” (that will be shown when there aren’t statuses in last 24 hours), a “New Contact” option, that will allow you to quickly add a new contact in your Address Book and, for each contact, the relative About will be shown.
To save space, WhatsApp also thought to add the “See all” button, that will show you all muted statuses.
It’s not sure if WhatsApp is going to add back the Contacts list in Android and Windows Phone versions, but we will investigate in next updates if they will do it.
This new Status section is hidden and it will be enabled in next WhatsApp updates. Note that this section may get improvements or other changes before the official release.

We are very close to the WWDC 2017 that will show iOS 11 to the public.
iOS 10 brought many new features in WhatsApp and developers will continue to add new features compatible with iOS 10+: it will be the turn of Rich Notifications.
What’s new (@WABetaInfo changelog):
Main changes and improvements for actual features:
WhatsApp is improving the status feature, that soon will allow to share text statues.
Text statuses will be shown in the same Status tab as new status updates, with a particular color.
WhatsApp Albums: this is the name of the new feature that WhatsApp is developing.
Thanks to albums, you will be able to share multiple photos at once (recently Instagram introduced the same feature for its app).
To create an album, you have to share/receive 4+ photos.
WhatsApp will add stickers in the app soon: this is the last news spotted in the iOS version, that shows a new redesign for sending GIFs and, finally, stickers.
As shown here, WhatsApp is going to redesign the GIFs picker, making it very similar to Android and Windows Phone.
You’ll be able to choose a category to search quickly certain types of GIFs, or you can manually search them.
