The Meta-owned messaging platform, WhatsApp, has recently announced that it will be rolling out a new feature,called "send as a document," for iOS users that will allow them to send media files as documents, WaBetaInfo reported.

With this new feature, which will be available for all users over the next few weeks, users can send photos and videos as documents while still preserving the original quality of the files.

The popular messaging platform's new feature enables iOS users to send media files directly without having to follow multiple steps.

To use this feature, simply open the chat share sheet, tap "Document," and then select "Choose Photo or Video" to send the files in their original quality.

However, those users who install the latest update of WhatsApp from the App Store will be able to use the latest feature.

Recently, WhatsApp submitted a new update for the iOS version, with which comes the feature to allow channel owners to invite new admins.

The enhancement has been designed to grant channel owners advanced administrative control and improved delegation capabilities.

The channel owners will be able to assign administrative privileges to selected contacts for their channels, with the flexibility to invite up to 15 contacts for the role of admin.

However, the designated contact must accept the invitation before obtaining administrative access to the channel.

After accepting the invite, the new admins will have the ability to modify essential channel details, including the name, icon, and description, the WhatsApp news tracker said.
