How to send Document or any type file via WhatsApp.

In the latest release of WhatsApp Instant Messenger, now It is easy to send a document file & you don’t need to use any Email Service. And you can send any format of Document file via WhatsApp Document feature to any of your WhatsApp contact numbers easily. WhatsApp supports PDF (Portable Document Format), MS Word (DOC, DOCX). Excel (Xls, XLSX), PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX), Text (TXT), file format. If you want to send word, Excel, PowerPoint documents then you can’t do that. Here I’ll tell how you can send PDF, MS Word (DOC, DOCX). Excel (Xls, XLSX), PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX) & other documents files to your friends using WhatsApp instant messenger.

Update: In the current Beta version 2.17.237, WhatsApp is testing on sending any kind of file. Means now you can send any type file including: PDF, Office Documents (doc, docx, ppt, pptx, txt, rtf, xls, xlsx, csv), Zip files, Android apps (.apk), iPhone apps (.ipa) etc. And also the maximum file size is also increased for iPhone around 128 MB, for Android around 80 MB and for web client around 65 MB. These limits are not much and can’t say WhatsApp will (or not) increase more them.
