A new WhatsApp feature was added to allow users to share documents and files with each other! Users are able to select documents from cloud storage services including Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud Drive, and others. However, it is not a full-feature file sharing service, it limits your sharing to a PDF document and it only displays your PDF files, it doesn’t browse through your documents! Of course, the feature will have direct consumer benefits as users can share things like flyers, e-tickets, scans, and other PDFs of a more personal nature.
Since WhatsApp has been invested in end-to-end encryption on its network, the documents shared on its service will be protected!
It is a great move; users are very excited about the news as it is implemented in both Android & IOS!
