Only PDF documents are supported for now. The company did not make it clear when it will add support for other popular document formats like Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents.

There are 2 simple ways to share a document throught WhatsApp. One is, go to your file manager and select the docmunt you want to share. Then select share from menu. You’ll see a list of apps which support to share that type of document. Select WhatsApp from that list and you’ll be redirected to the app. Select the contact you want to share that doument with and the file will be shared to that contact.

You can also open a conversation and select attachements from the top right corner and attach the file from the list.

The latest version of the app can be downloaded from their official website.
