share pdf file in whatsapp

I have had many posts about Whatsapp in this blog till now. Whatsapp is the most popular messaging application in android as we already know. So i prefer writing more about Whatsapp because people are very interested about such topics. Even though whatsapp is the most popular messaging app, it has got some limitations. It’s quite natural because everything in this world is not perfect.

Some Limitations of Whatsapp Messenger

  • We cannot send large files through Whatsapp, it holds only 16MB of file.
  • We cannot send pdf files through whatsapp and it’s the most important document format.
  • We cannot send APK files through whatsapp
  • The quality of the image files we send through whatsapp is reduced by the server.

So these are some of the limitations of whatsapp and if the above the features are included in whatsapp, it will be a great boon. I have heard that many people asking on how to send pdf file in whatsapp? and Is there any feature available in whatsapp to send documents?

Today i’m here with a new post, that is how you can send pdf, apk, zip or any other files with any extension in whatsapp. This method can also be used to send large files upto 1 GB through whatsapp or any other instant messaging application you’ve got in your smart phone.

As i have told earlier whatsapp did not have any inbuilt feature to send this kind of files and we are going to depend an awesome android application that will definitely help us to send any files up to 1GB through Whatsapp.

WhatsTools Share

WhatsTools is the application we are going to use for this purpose.The main advantage of this app is that, the recipient is not required to install WhatsTools to receive the file. Anyone on Whatsapp can receive and download the file with ease.

Actually this app works with the help of cloud storage like Google Drive. The file which we want to share on whatsapp are actually uploaded to our Google Drive Storage so that no one else can have access to it. This file, which we uploaded to our Google Drive are being shared to Whatsapp with the help of WhatsTools Service. This adds more security to the service since it is incorporated with Google Cloud.

WhatsTools has got 4.6 rating in Play Store and you can guess the popularity of the app.
