I see that you can send a media file on BlackBerry. Can I do the same thing on Android?

Yes you can send a mp3 file through WhatsApp in Android.

  • Go to a private chat/group chat where you want to send the mp3 file.
  • Find the clip icon in the top right corner of the chat.

    WhatsApp Attach

  • Tap it and a menu looking like this will pop up.

    WhatsApp Attach menu

  • Choose "Audio" and then choose "Choose Music Track" (Play Music app) or from a third party music app.

  • Choose the track you wish to send and then confirm.
  • The mp3 file will be received (by default) in Internal Storage > WhatsApp > Media > WhatsApp Audio

Alternative Solution #1,

  • Locate the mp3 file you wish to send in a file explorer.
  • Depending on the file explorer, either long-clicking or choosing options will give you a menu with all operations such as cut, copy, rename, details, share (or send).
  • Choose share (or send) and then choose WhatsApp from the pop-up menu.
  • Now choose the contact you wish to send to and confirm.

    +1 good answer! @svarog The 2nd solution may not address the exact parameters you defined, but remember others will be reading this and in some cases an alternative app / extension may be exactly what that person wants! The more options the better (in my opinion anyway).

Go to file manager. Find the mp3 you want to send. Long press on it for 1 second. Then select "Share" option. Then select Whatsapp in the sharelist. That's it. You're done.
