WhatsApp update omits Google Camera Social Share support 9to5Google

In October 2019, Google Camera added a handy feature to the Pixel 4 that lets you quickly share your last photo or video with another app. An update to WhatsApp for Android this week prevented Facebook-owned service from working with Social Share on Google Camera.

After taking pictures with Google Camera, it quickly appears as a preview in the bottom-right corner. That circle brings up a column of removed icons, and tapping on an application will start the third-party process of sharing that image.

Up to three user-selected applications may appear in that menu. A list will appear in Google Camera settings to toggle on / off your desired share targets.

On Wednesday, the 2.21.1.13 version of WhatsApp on Android has started to launch. After installing this release, WhatsApp disappears completely from social shares. It is no longer available from pop-ups or favorites.

This is not a problem with Google Camera – since it hasn’t been updated recently, but WhatsApp. The last stable version of the chat app from December (2.20.206.24) supports sharing shortcuts. It is not clear if this was a bug on the part of the Facebook service or intentional removal. Regardless of the users who use social shares, contacting WhatsApp support is the best bet on how to get it back.
