Sending emails to WhatsApp

Being one of the most popular chat platforms with over a billion active users the reach of WhatsApp is far and wide. It can send pictures, share files, and generally help you to stay in touch while being user-friendly. However, can it also be used to send emails? The short answer is no, but who would settle for short answers? We will show you how to achieve the functionality you might be missing. Let us dive deeper.


How to send email to WhatsApp

By default, WhatsApp allows sending any file type and documents, with the only limitation being the size of the file. However, the files need support from other applications so they can actually be viewed.

On mobile devices, this can sometimes be tricky, but generally, it can be done by converting your message to another file format and then sending it as an attachment. The format that is widely used is pdf.

General rule of the thumb on any android device is to try to print the email and while doing so, saving the document as pdf. Then the PDF can be easily shared via WhatsApp without further limitations. Keep in mind that not all email applications for mobile devices allow you this conversion. Steps are quite similar for users who prefer the Apple environment. The method always relies on some form of file conversion and file sharing.
