For a few months we have been talking about WhatsApp's plans to open the possibility of sending documents through its platform. Today we learned that WhatsApp will send the documents through Google Docs.
This information can be inferred from the page of WhatsApp translations which confirms that WhatsApp is about to launch this functionality and is searching for the appropriate translation for this option in the application.
Pages, Slides and Sheets are the chosen applications
As WhatsApp will send the different documents through Google Docs, it is clear that for this it will use the applications that Google has for sending this files type. Specifically, these are the applications Pages, Slides and Sheets.
As you can see in the images, although the name of Google does not appear, from the previous words it can be deduced that these tools are the ones that Google has for editing and creating documents. In addition, the word “sending” appears, which seems to further ensure this possibility of sending.
Pages will be used for transfer of Word documents, Slides for PowerPoint presentation files and Sheets for spreadsheets from Excel It would be the most logical considering that they are free tools and that it is not the first integration they do with Google services.
We must remember that WhatsApp already has integrated into its platform the possibility of making a backup copy of our chats and multimedia files in the cloud of Google Drive, something that works perfectly and is already an essential.
It will also be necessary to finally see what format they will use, if the Office ones (.docx,.xlsx and.pptx) or if the format of the different Google applications.
