The latest update of Signal Messenger that has raised the version from 4.3.2 to 4.5.3 makes sure the increase in version number means an increase in features as well.
If other popular messengers have disappointed you regarding file sharing, you will definitely love the latest update of Signal Messenger. The latest update brings in the much-needed feature of “file sharing”. Earlier limited to image, video and mp3 files, the Signal Messenger now allows you to share any type of file, be it an APK file, PDF, PPT, or MP4 etc. By anything, we mean literally anything.

Also, to send a file, tap the attachment icon, and hit the new “File” icon from the menu followed by selecting your file. To accommodate the new “File” icon, developers have combined the “image” and “video” sharing under “gallery”. Now if you want to send an image or a video file, tap the “gallery” icon.
Further, the app now supports enlarged emojis or Jumbomojis. When you send an individual emoji or a message with no text and just emoji, the size of emoji is increased. The feature is similar to what we have on WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
Keep in mind: If you get an error “There is no app to handle this link on your device” while opening a received file, simply save the file using save option in Signal and then open it from your File Manager. To save a file on Signal Messenger, long touch the message and tap “Save” icon present in the top bar.
