WhatsApp on Android could soon let you share files with nearby friends

WhatsApp could receive its own version of Apple's AirDrop, as recent Android betas have suggested that a file sharing feature is in the works.

WABetaInfo's post provides insight into potential updates. Similar to AirDrop, this feature only works between the two of you. To exchange files, both users must have the software open to the tool and be “nearby.” What's especially interesting about this file share is that the recipient must physically shake their smartphone to create a share request.
