Flutter Share Text and Image to whatsapp

Published October 25, 2021


In this flutter example we will implement flutter share Text and image to whatsapp. This flutter share example we will pick image from gallery and share to whatsapp by using flutter_share_me plugin.

  • Share Image to whatsapp
  • Share video to whatsapp
  • Share text to whatsapp

 

So let's get started

Step 1: Create Flutter application

Step 2: Add required plugins to pubspec.yaml file

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  flutter_share_me: ^1.2.0
  image_picker:

 

Step 3: Import library files inside application dart file

import 'package:flutter_share_me/flutter_share_me.dart';
import 'package:image_picker/image_picker.dart';

 

Step 4: Implement flutter Pick image from Gallery using Image picker plugin

Future<void> pickImage() async {
  final XFile? xFile = await picker.pickImage(source: ImageSource.gallery);
  print(xFile);
  file = File(xFile!.path);
  setState(() {
    videoEnable = false;
  });
}

 

Similarly we can also pick video by record video

Future<void> pickVideo() async {
  final XFile? xFile = await picker.pickVideo(source: ImageSource.camera);
  print(xFile);
  file = File(xFile!.path);
  setState(() {
    videoEnable = true;
  });
}

 

Now implement flutter whatsapp share functionality

Future<void> onButtonTap(Share share) async {
  String msg =
      '';

  String? response;
  final FlutterShareMe flutterShareMe = FlutterShareMe();
  switch (share) {

    case Share.whatsapp:
      if (file != null) {
        response = await flutterShareMe.shareToWhatsApp(
            imagePath: file!.path,
            fileType: videoEnable ? FileType.video : FileType.image);
      } else {
        response = await flutterShareMe.shareToWhatsApp(msg: msg);
      }
      break;
    case Share.whatsapp_business:
      response = await flutterShareMe.shareToWhatsApp(msg: msg);
      break;

    case Share.whatsapp_personal:
      response = await flutterShareMe.shareWhatsAppPersonalMessage(
          message: msg, phoneNumber: 'phone-number-with-country-code');
      break;

  }
  debugPrint(response);
}

 

Step 5: Now run the application

Flutter whatsapp text and image share

 

 

Flutter share option - whatsapp share text and image
