Ever since WhatsApp was launched, the WhatsApp messenger owned by Facebook has finally received an upgrade that allows users to send documents through chat.
This feature is only visible on the most recent version of the App and is available on Google Play and Apple Store, on Android v2.12.453 and iOS v2.12.4. Along side this update, is a couple of new and interesting updates.
On the android version 2.12.453 that is available on Google Play, some users can see a document option in the attachment section. Although not all users using the same app version can be able to view this option currently.
Its been said that many users who download the new app version from WhatsApp official site can view the attachment option. But for now, users can only send PDF attachments, I believe the company is doing something in expanding this feature.
If you’ve been taking note, you should notice that before, there were six attachment option, but now photo and video has been combined into camera as a result of this update. Users can now share documents with media files, there is also a newly added links tab.
Here is the annoying part of it; you can only send an attachment only if the receiver has updated his app to the recent version that supports this feature, although a group of anxious fans tried sending a document from iOS version 2.12.14 to Android version 2.12.489 through WhatsApp and it worked perfectly.
According to Google Play listing, the WhatsApp version 2.12.453 brings an addition of over 100 new emojis, with Google drive backup for your chats and media, it is now compatible on Android 6.0 (marshmallow), with a support of 5 new languages.
Along side this update, is a very significant feature on the WhatsApp iOS app; a ‘blue ticks’, this indicates that the message has been read by the other party, and this blue tick can be seen directly on the main WhatsApp chat list instead of opening the chat to see whether the receiver has read the message or not. You can download the updated app from App Store
