The problem is that the file is in PDF, meaning you'll be mucking around with different apps and maybe even a purchase or two to get a simple job done. Well, Google Drive is about to save G Suite users some of that hassle as it will now allow you to fill out structured PDFs on either Android or iOS.

Opera 52 lets you save pages as PDF and brings other minor improvements

Printing webpages and confirmation emails used to be common back in the days, especially to keep a copy of your booking when traveling. However, as mobile devices are much more popular, most people now carry an electronic version of these documents. In the meantime, browsing websites on a phone is also more frequent, but there are times when you need to save a page as a PDF file. Unfortunately, and quite surprisingly, Chrome doesn't allow you to do this natively, but Opera's latest version adds support for it, making it easier to store or share documents.

Microsoft Adds PDF Export, Direct-From-Camera Picture Insertion, And RTF Support To Office Apps For Android In Latest Updates

Microsoft has been steadily marching towards getting familiar desktop features onto their mobile apps. Most recently, that meant support for versioning, auto-save, and live collaboration. This time around, all three get the ability to export to PDF, something we take for granted when using the full versions of Office. They also get a new feature allowing users to insert images directly from your camera, which of course is a feature more unique to mobile. For its part, Microsoft Word for Android can now open RTF files, which falls into the "I didn't realize it couldn't already do that" category for many of us.

It doesn't seem like the option is baked into a specific version of WhatsApp since we've seen users from 2.12.453 (official Play Store release) to the latest 2.12.493 (beta) reporting it suddenly becoming available to them, while others still don't have it. Odds are it's a server-side trigger that's spreading the feature, and at a very fast pace according to the tips in our inboxes.

So how does WhatsApp Documents work? Sending a document is a matter of tapping the attachment icon in any chat and choosing the new blue Document icon.
