WhatsApp recently introduce some cool features, including sending of document files (.pdf, .txt and .doc), all other file formats were not supported but I will show you a how to send folder and files of any extension to your contact on WhatsApp.
The method requires ES File Explorer or any advanced file explorer (which I know everyone has) and the raw folder or file you want to send.

How Can I Send Folder on WhatsApp?

Use this same method for sending a file:
1. Using ES Explorer, Locate the folder and open it.
2. Select all part of the folder you’d like to send.
3. Click on “Option” and finally, select “Compress“. You should have something like the below screenshot:
Send Folder on WhatsApp
4. After compressing successfully, proceed to change the extension from .zip to .doc
5. Now you can share the folder with anyone on whatsapp.
The pro of this method is its time-saving feature and its con is you can’t send without compressing and the receiver won’t be able to view until he decompress it back (if he have issues with decompressing, give him a link to this article)
Now, if you have successfully sent the folder, the process to decompress is quite simple and I guess most standard phones don’t require any third party apps to do this:
After successfully downloading the .doc folder, change the extension to .zip and then you can open it now. If you even want more access, you can proceed to extract the files inside.
On the other hand, you might have issues with WhatsApp file limit 25MB or so, to bypass this download any unofficial version of WhatsApp e.g GbWhatsApp.
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, etc.
