How Does this New WhatsApp Feature Work?
At the moment, if you want to send multiple media files to another contact, WhatsApp allows you to mark multiple items and share them all simultaneously. However, trying to send these files in an organized way becomes a headache. This is because it becomes quite difficult to know which item you selected first. WhatsApp is about to take away this struggle by introducing numbers to each item selected.

For example, the first media file you select will be marked as 1, with the second one getting marked as 2 and so on. This will make it very easy for the user to know the order through which they want to send their media files. The new update will assign these numbers to each media thumbnail that the user selects for easier recognition. This will also allow users to easily know the number of media files they are sharing instead of relying on their memory.
