You Can Now Send Documents In Any Format On Whastapp

Your favourite messaging app, Whatsapp has just added a new feature to its numerous features that will make you enjoy sending and receiving messages.

Whatsapp just rolled out a new feature which enables you to send and receive documents in PDF format. It was not possible before as you could only send photos, video, audio, location and contact.

Julius Gbenga, A friend of mine on Facebook contacted me saying its possible to send PDF files on Whatsapp so I checked mine and I didn't see the feature so I had to update it to see the send Document feature on my whatsapp app. If you send a file to a contact and the person's whatsapp is not up to date, you will be notified that the person can't receive it unless he or she update the app.

With this new feature you can easily share PDF files like eBooks easily unlike before that one will have to send through email.

Have you seen the new feature on your whatsapp? If not update it and tell me how you feel using it.

Why WhatsApp Don't Sell Ads?

Technology, Apps, Whatsapp,  Phones,
 I know that many of you will be wondering like me why Whatsapp don't sell ads with their large number of users, before we talk more about it, Lets  know what it is called WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Messenger is a mobile messaging app which allows users to send and receive text messages, images, video and audio media messages without having to pay additional charges other than your internet connection.

WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Android and Nokia, It was launched in 2009 by two former employees of Yahoo, Brian Acton and Jan Koum.

In January 2015, WhatsApp was the most globally popular messaging app with more than 600 million active users.In April 2015, WhatsApp reached 800 million active users.

On February 19, 2014, WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook for approximately $16 billion USD.

Late January 2015, Koum in a facebook post explained how users can be able to use WhatsApp on their web browsers....

"Our web client is simply an extension of your phone: the web browser mirrors conversations and messages from your mobile device—this means all of your messages still live on your phone".
How the WhatsApp web client looks like

Below is a blog post on Whatsapp blog which explains Why WhatsApp Dont Sell Ads, after reading this, am sure it will end your curiosity.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.
– Tyler Durden, Fight Club

Brian and I spent a combined 20 years at Yahoo!, working hard to keep the site working. And yes, working hard to sell ads, because that's what Yahoo! did. It gathered data and it served pages and it sold ads.

We watched Yahoo! get eclipsed in size and reach by Google... a more efficient and more profitable ad seller. They knew what you were searching for, so they could gather your data more efficiently and sell better ads.

These days companies know literally everything about you, your friends, your interests, and they use it all to sell ads.

When we sat down to start our own thing together three years ago we wanted to make something that wasn't just another ad clearinghouse. We wanted to spend our time building a service people wanted to use because it worked and saved them money and made their lives better in a small way. We knew that we could charge people directly if we could do all those things. We knew we could do what most people aim to do every day: avoid ads.

No one wakes up excited to see more advertising, no one goes to sleep thinking about the ads they'll see tomorrow. We know people go to sleep excited about who they chatted with that day (and disappointed about who they didn't). We want WhatsApp to be the product that keeps you awake... and that you reach for in the morning. No one jumps up from a nap and runs to see an advertisement.

Advertising isn't just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought. At every company that sells ads, a significant portion of their engineering team spends their day tuning data mining, writing better code to collect all your personal data, upgrading the servers that hold all the data and making sure it's all being logged and collated and sliced and packaged and shipped out... And at the end of the day the result of it all is a slightly different advertising banner in your browser or on your mobile screen.

Remember, when advertising is involved you the user are the product.

At WhatsApp, our engineers spend all their time fixing bugs, adding new features and ironing out all the little intricacies in our task of bringing rich, affordable, reliable messaging to every phone in the world. That's our product and that's our passion. Your data isn't even in the picture. We are simply not interested in any of it.

When people ask us why we charge for WhatsApp, we say "Have you considered the alternative?"

You can download Whatsapp from for your mobile phones and tablets.

Install mobile uncle or MTK engineering app from google playstore. After you have installed the app, look for a blackberry phone and write the IMEI number somewhere because you will be needing it later on. Make sure the blackberry IMEI number you want to use glo sim card will not be used inside at all.

Launch the app as seen in the picture above.
Click on Engineer Mode (MTK)
Slide your screen to the left to see "Connectivity" under it, click "CDS Information".
Then Radio Information.
You will then see Phone 1 and Phone 2, Phone 1 is the IMEI number of the SIM 1 while Phone 2 is the IMEI number of SIM 2. But in this article we will be using the SIM click phone 2.
After you press phone 2, you will see your current IMEI number, your phone number and more.
