According to WABetaInfo, citing Gizchina, Tuesday (January 23, 2024), if you want to share WhatsApp files with each other, both users must be in the "People Nearby" area for the transfer to be successful.

In terms of security, WhatApp guarantees that end-to-end encryption will ensure that file sharing is as secure as WhatsApp's default settings.

It is interesting to note that users have to shake their phone to start sharing files. WhatsApp's end-to-end encryption ensures the security of file transfers by effectively managing them for privacy.

Encryption hides inaccessible phone numbers and prevents them from being sent to strangers in the contact list.

Users of the WhatsApp app will find this new feature useful. However, with the improved Quick Share sharing feature from Google and Samsung, it may not be necessary.
