On my dual sim Lumia 535(RM-1090) when I try to share winrar archives(.zip), it says that The version of Whatsapp you are using does not support sharing of such files But every time I go to store and check it says about Whatsapp that it is installed and nothing about updation. How can I cope-up with this situation? Another issue is that I am a programming student and when I try to send C code file (extension .C)or MATLAB code file(.m), it gives a similar but not very exact notification (See the screenshot). Now were I can find that version of whatsapp which fulfils all my needs and can send or recieve all types of files??? Or is there any trick to send such files via whatsapp????

enter image description here


WhatsApp does not support the transmission of .zip files at the moment. You can go into the Store, and check the application's description and change log to confirm that.

  • yeah, he should probably use other services like wechat line etc for now – Ram Raj Aug 12 '16 at 10:49
  • if it doesnot support then it should give a message likewhatsapp dont support..... but instead it says this version of whatsapp........ Doesn't that make any difference? – User5 Aug 13 '16 at 18:19
  • I think that message is because whatsapp plans to support zip files in the future, so that message is already set, as they assumed nobody would try to send zip files.. – kelvinelove Aug 14 '16 at 17:04
  • Oh I see.......Thanks but message already set is completely out of my mind – User5 Aug 20 '16 at 17:35
  • But @kelvinelove See my edits.......... what would you say about this? Do whatsapp plans to share programming codes as well? :D – User5 Aug 28 '16 at 0:16
