Now the company claims it’s the first to roll out encryped file-sharing for any file extension- PDFs, PowerPoints, APKs, whatever. Previously you could only share images natively.
The file transfers work in groups of up 128 participants. On desktop you can share any file on your comptuer, while on mobile you can attach both locally stored files or items stored on cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox or iCloud.
In a smaller update for Android users, you can also now reply to messages directly from push notifications.
The update is rolling out to OS X, Windows, Android, iOS and the Web today. The company isn’t done though: embedding shared video files into conversations is next.
