Contrary to other instant messaging applications, the option to share documents was not found from the beginning in WhatsAppbut it was finally added and since then it has been modified to better fit the needs of users, if you still don’t know how to share a document, here we teach you with a simple step by step.
It has recently been announced that among the large number of new features that will be implemented in WhatsApp in the coming months is the possibility of sending documents without being compressed, to which a brief description can also be added to be read by whoever receives it, this simple detail being a great novelty in the world of instant messaging apps.
So you can send documents by WhatsApp and add a description
The size limit for items to send via WhatsApp chat was recently increased from just 100MB to 1GB and at the moment you can only add description to media files such as images, GIFs and videos. But in the beta version this is changing.
– The first thing to know is that, like any other version of WhatsApp, in the beta you must go to the chat where you want to share the item and hit the clip icon next to the bar to write.
– After this, we select what type of file we want to send, from multimedia chosen from the gallery of our device to Word, Excel and PDF files that we have saved in the phone’s memory, you simply select it and you can send any document you want.
– The important change comes in the beta, because now you can select a non-media element and it will still open the text box to add a description, in it you can clarify what you are sending or even put a title.
– To have access to the beta version 188.8.131.52. You simply have to go to the Google Play Store and search for WhatsApp, after this go down to the description and go to the option “Become a beta tester”, this will take you to the verification window.
– Finally you must click on the “Become a verifier” button, from that moment you must wait for a configuration and download the necessary update to be able to test the new WhatsApp functions.
