Sending Text and Video messages is a common practice for WhatsApp users. However, many are still confused about how to send documents in several formats such as PDF, typed in Office Docx, Xlsx, pptx and many others.

The menu for sending documents on WA is indeed hidden, it's different when you want to send videos or pictures from the cellphone gallery where the menu icon is clearly visible at the bottom next to the text writing column.

For example, we have a PDF file and want to share it with our friends via WhatsApp, or want to send the typed file in Word in Docx format, Presentation file in pptx format, compressed files such as RAR or ZIP and others, can easily be sent from the WA application.

How to Send PDF Files and Others Via WhatsApp

So, those who are used to using Email Applications such as GMAIL to send PDF, Word, Excel, Presentation, etc. documents, you can try to use WhatsApp because it is faster and easier.

How to Send PDF and Office Documents in WA

Check out the steps for sending document files, PDFs and other files using the WhatsApp application below.

Open the WA application and select the friend you want to send the document file to
On the message or chat page, select the menu in the form of a paper clips icon, located next to the camera icon
Then select the "Document" menu, find and select the PDF file or the one you want.
If so, just click the send button.

There are also other ways besides using the WA application interface as above, we can directly access the files we want to send, generally using the phone's default manager file, then select the share option and select the WhatsApp icon, then send as usual.

Maybe there is a question, why can't PDF, WORD, EXCEL, Presentation, RAR, ZIP or other files that we send can't be opened on smartphones by our friends?

If for example there is a DOCX format file sent, then the smartphone that wants to open it must also install an application that supports the file such as WPS Office, Ms-Office, Free-Office and so on.

Likewise, to open RAR or ZIP format files, for example, on a smartphone you must also install applications that support that format, such as the WinRAR, Unrar, Open-ZIP applications and many similar applications on the play store.

Thus a brief discussion on tips for sharing or sending document files from the WA application that the admin can share, hopefully this is useful.

How To Send WhatsApp Chats Even Though They Are Blocked

Then what if you want to send WhatsApp messages even though the number is blocked? Don't worry, as reported by Grid.ID from Techjunkie.com, here are 3 easy ways to send WhatsApp messages even if your number is blocked.

1. Change Phone Number

Changing the WhatsApp number is the most proven tips for guaranteeing success among other tips. All you need to do is set up a new phone number.

First of all, what you need to do is to back up all the contact data and messages on the old WhatsApp account. After that, it only remains to create a new WhatsApp account using a replacement number.

Once your new account has been created, you can re-write the message to the person who blocked you. Of course, send messages in more polite language and don't offend the recipient.

2. Delete WhatsApp Account

This method is quite risky because it can delete all your WhatsApp contact data and messages so far. However, this method can be practiced if you don't want to change your number and are lazy to re-register.

How to delete your WhatsApp account is quite easy and you don't need additional applications. You just have to click on the three-dot sign on the top right side of your WhatsApp.

Next, click Settings> Account> Delete My Account.

After the account is deleted, it's time for you to create a new WhatsApp by opening the WhatsApp application> New WhatsApp Account. 

You just have to continue the next step, click Agree and continue> Continue> Making WhatsApp. When your WhatsApp interface is back to normal, then you can return to sending messages to him.

3. Via WhatsApp Group

This method is the easiest way without having to delete your account or change your phone number. If the first and second methods don't work and you are still being blocked, then this last method is worth trying.

The last way is to take advantage of the WhatsApp group feature. If you and he belong to the same group, then you can take advantage of this. In the group system, someone who is not the admin of the group cannot block someone arbitrarily.

By taking advantage of this, you can still send WhatsApp messages to that person without fear of suddenly being blocked again.
