WhatsApp has become a new definition of instant messaging where we can share images, sounds, video clips, audio songs, contacts & location. The two important things missing from Official WhatsApp from a long time were the capabilities to send and receive Documents and Files, which can be done easily by Telegram or Hike.
WhatsApp has released an update which will allow its users to share documents using WhatsApp. For the time being it’s just limited to PDF documents and for Android users only. We expect that in coming weeks WhatsApp will make it available across all platforms and all kind of documents files will be supported.
Check out the screenshots below:
The update in the PlayStore will be rolled out in batches, region wise. The updated version which supports document feature is Build Number 2.12.493. Instead of waiting for the update from PlayStore you can download it right away from the following link and install it directly on your android phone.
