What’sApp document sharing supports PDF for now

Previously when the attachment icon was clicked an option for Photo and Video appears, in this latest version there is just one icon for Camera which when taped gives an option that that asks if you want to take a photo or shoot video.

For now the only type of document supported is PDF, further updates should add support for other documents
