    I am not able to share images from "Files" app.
    Steps to replicate:
    1. Open Files app
    2. Select Images and open camera folder.
    3. Open photo to be shared in "Photos" app.
    4. Click on share button and select WhatsApp and select the contact whom you want to share image with
    [​IMG]

    no image is shared

    Wifi direct will work with OP devices only..same happens in case of Samsung's or Asus's wifi direct too..to transfer files to a phone of a different manufacturer you will have to use 3rd party apps..Xender is the best out there..

    WhatsApp sharing works fine for me from within WhatsApp select the attach icon and then it will take you to files app and then shares fine. Shared more than 40 photos yesterday alone

    2. I checked ...that video was present in files app
    3. Now I delete that video from whatsapp app
    4. When I go back to files app i can still see that video but cannot play for obvious reasons
    5. Now I selected that video and press delete button
    6. Files app is CRASHED
    I tried 4-5 times but I cannot remove that video from files app.

    Please help me.

    No. Instead of opening any image from File app just open that image directly from Photo app. Then it works.

    Mine is still a peculiar issue. I'm not able to share the images to WhatsApp from File Manager that are received via Bluetooth! Appreciate any help in this regard.
