Share A File From WhatsApp To Facebook

Like I always say in my posts related to WhatsApp, WhatsApp has certain features embedded in the App that makes the whole chatting experience much fun. Today, however, will be centered on one particular feature in WhatsApp that lets you share a file from WhatsApp to Facebook or Instagram.

This feature makes sharing easier and faster. And the best part about it is that it takes barely 3 to 4 steps. So, if your friend sent you a funny video and you see the need to share it with your friends and followers on Facebook and Instagram, you can simply click on the video and share.

What kind of files can be shared from WhatsApp to Facebook and Instagram? Audio(voice notes), video files, Gifs, and pictures. Naturally, one would think that all types of files can be shared from WhatsApp to Facebook and Instagram, but that’s not the case. Pictures can be shared on Facebook and Instagram, videos and GIFs too, but Audio files(voice notes) can’t be shared on Facebook or Instagram.

Okay, now that you know about that. Let’s move on.

And that’s basically how you can share a file from WhatsApp to Facebook. That was easy right? Yeah, I know. Remember, I earlier said that you can’t share audio files to Facebook and Instagram, That’s because Facebook and Instagram naturally don’t support mp3/AAC files. If you convert your mp3/AAC/OGG to video format, you will be to share the file on Facebook and Instagram.
