We can use the ‘share’ component from the react-native-share library in a React Native Android app to share a picture on WhatsApp.  


  • react-native-share: React Native apps may share their content with other apps or services using this library. It eases the process for developers to add sharing features to their apps without having to deal with the challenges of each platform's API by abstracting away the underlying platform-specific APIs for sharing content. For distributing text, photographs, and other sorts of material to several platforms, including email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, and others, it offers a straightforward API.  
  • share: It is a JavaScript function that allows access to the native sharing features of a device or platform. On the user's device, it enables a web application to share material with other programs or services, including email, SMS, social media, and other programs that support content sharing. The share function is supported by modern web browsers on both desktop and mobile platforms.
