Same for me!
For some reason when choosing the paperclip it only shows the whatsapp galery, that means every picture sent or received within whatsapp.
You need to click the 3 dots now (which you didn't have to before). Once one image is selected you can (before sending) click the "add picture" icon in the lower left, just as before the update. But this now just changes the original image, so there is no way of sending two or more images at once.
That has to be some sort of bug which will hopefully be fixed soon!
By the way, pushing and holding on an image does not work either 😞
I just found out why this happened:
If you go to (on your Android, not within Whatsapp): Settings -> Apps -> Whatsapp -> entitlements (I guess that is what it's called, my phone is set to german), for some reason Whatsapp wasn't allowed to access pictures and videos on my device. Which I am sure it was allowed to before the update.
So you might want to check that, hope it helps!
Hi. Has anyone found a solution to this? I've given Whatsapp permission to photos but I still can't send more than one photo at a time. Holding it down doesn't work anymore.
