Being launched long back, WhatsApp is now our connector. Wherever we stay and whatever be the cause, WhatsApp is always at our service for connecting to our friends. From a simple chatting app WhatsApp gained the status of a social media platform, with the availability of setting status and sharing every details of our lives with our friends. The most common habit of the present day people is saying, “send me the pics over WhatsApp” after clicking a hangout selfie. Facebook being the WhatsApp owner, every now and then, kept on updating the app. Today there is hardly any difference between the Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. But, the only area that kept WhatsApp a step back from the Facebook Messenger was that there was no option of sending documents through WhatsApp. So, naturally, the users had to depend on the email services or the Facebook Messenger. But now, all the restrictions have been withdrawn and WhatsApp has finally put up the option of sending documents. WhatsApp Features Update The feature is visible in the most recent builds available via Google Play and the App Store – Android v2.12.453 and iOS v2.12.4. However, all the WhatsApp users will not be able to use this feature for now. Only some of the users are provided with this feature. This is because the option has only been provided on an experimental basis and all the users will be facilitated with this only after a proper feedback is obtained. The thing to be noticed is that people can send documents only to those who are also having the same option on their version of WhatsApp. But, from phone of one operating system to other documents can be sent without any problem like other options on this app. Also Check: Use WhatsApp without number verification Previously, there used to be six attachment options which included Photos, Videos, Gallery, Contacts, Location and Audio.
