How To Send Any Android File, App Or Game On WhatsApp

WhatsApp introduced some features recently which included sending of document files (.pdf, .txt and .doc), any other file were not supported but I will show you a method to send any kind of file, app or game on your Android to anyone on your contact on WhatsApp.

The method does not require any installation of third party apps as long as you have the raw files of your apk apps with you because the trick here is that you will have to rename the file before sending it on WhatsApp.

But if you do not have the raw files, you can always backup your file to the backup folder and send from there.

Remember, this is almost the same method you used to rename subtitle file to help you watch movies with subtitle on VLC using Xplore app, click here for that guide

How Can I Send any file on WhatsApp?

1. Locate and rename the file or app you want to send (for this tutorial, I am using UCmini app) to anyname.text and after renaming it, you will notice the file icon will change into a doc file.

2. Using any file manager, share it (with the Share button) to WhatsApp and choose any contact or group you want to send it to

Alternatively, you can share it from inside the WhatsApp app

1. Open your WhatsApp click on the contact or group you want to share the app

2. Then, click the share icon then select Document

3. And locate the app that you had earlier renamed in your File Manger and share the file

4. After sharing, the person you shared it with can now download the app in form of text file

5. After downloading, he will have to go to file manager and locate downloaded anyname.text and then rename the file to anyname.apk (ie just to change the extension from .text to .apk)

6. You now get your android apk which you can install and run.

How To Get Android App (apk) Raw File


1. Use the Android default Backup and restore app and backup the app you want to send, then locate the app in the backup folder using any file manager and share it via WhatsApp


2. Download BackupSuite Apk Android App HERE

3. Install and Launch the app on your phone

4. Now swipe left and you will see apps and other options to backup

5. Tap on apps to display a list of all the installed apps on your device.

6. Now tap on the one you want to backup (to get the raw file)

7. Go to your file manager and locate BackupSuite folder. There you will see the raw android app you just backed up. Now you can do whatever you want to do with the app including renaming it with any file extension or format.

The method is straight forward and easy if you follow it diligently, for now, this is the best method to share or transfer any apk to anyone on WhatsApp.

You can use the same method to send different file formats like zip, exe, rar, doc etc. Anyway, if you are still confused, feel free to ask questions via the comments box.
