Send Any File Type in WhatsApp on Android

WhatsApp is a very popular mobile messaging app available for google android, Apple iOS, Blackberry, Nokia Series 40, Symbian 60, Windows Phone. In addition to sending text messages over internet, it also allows users to share and send Images, Audios and Videos with each other. But it has certain limitations :

– It allows users to send only image, audio and video files only. There is no in-built option to send other file types such as PDF, DOC, APK, etc.

– The maximum video size that can be sent over whatsapp is restricted to 16 MB. You cannot send videos larger than 16 MB. However whatsapp introduced a new feature which allow you to trim and compress the video before sending. But still its a limited feature. We cannot send large videos.

– If you have noticed, when you send images on whatsapp, they are compressed and sent to the receiver. However the quality is not noticeable on mobile, but it can be noticed on computer. If we want to send HD images, the quality will be significantly reduced.

The above are the severe restrictions for file transfer in whatsapp. However you can upload the image, video, audio or any other file type without losing quality, to any file sharing site and share it with your friends. But it will be a lengthy process. So, here is a whatsapp trick to share and send any kind of file and transfer your images, audio and videos without losing its quality. We need two apps along with whatsapp to use this trick. Follow the below procedure :
