Download Latest WhatsApp APK that Allows you to Send & Receive Documents

Published

on

Ever wondered how you can use WhatsApp to send documents? Well, with the latest update the instant messaging app is aiming for you to share more than just the images, videos and voice messages. You can now share documents via your favorite IM app. There are tons of third-party apps, plugins if you say, that allows such functionality to send and receive documents via WhatsApp contacts.

Now the company has officially released an update, which is being rolled out to the users as you read this. Since it is a roll out, it may take up quite a tie to reach to you. Going through the proper channels takes up some time, the update needs to be approved by the Google Play Store, and then only you’ll receive a notification. But if you’re eager to try out this feature, then you can manually install the latest APK that has this feature.

Note that this APK is not available to download from the Official WhatsApp website. But we do have a verified APK for you to download and install. Don’t worry we are also using the same APK, it’s safe to bet on it. The latest version of the app is 2.12.493, which is quite ahead of what you’ll currently found on company’s official website. I was on quite older version, i.e. 2.12.453.

After installing the update, you have to go to a WhatsApp chats and open a conversation, once you tap on the attachments icon, you’ll notice a new option, Document. Tapping on it would lead you to open a list of documents present on your device. Unfortunately, currently the latest WhatsApp only supports the exchange of PDF files; you can’t send other format files like MS Word or even the Spreadsheets. With new update, the video option disappears and is nowhere to be found.

We would like to see the support for other file formats as well as integration with Google Drive where you can share documents stored on your Google account. For starters, it would be quite convenient to share PDF or presentation files via WhatsApp contacts. The service is slowing becoming more than just a text/media messaging app. In future, it may give apps like Slack and Hipchat, which are popular with group chatting services used by companies for internal message/file exchange.

This update is available only to Android users right now; there is no information known that when it’s going to support the documents exchange on iOS and Windows Phones. While if you’re a WhatsApp user on a Nokia Symbian device or BlackBerry or Window Phone 7.1, then you should know that company is dropping support for those mobile platforms, as well as it will no longer support Android 2.1 or 2.2 OS based Android phones. The reason behind this decision is that company wants to focus on adding more security and new features on their existing popular platform apps, i.e. iOS and Android.
