When I try opening a PDF file that I receive on WhatsApp directly by clicking on the WhatsApp message, I get the message, "You may not have a proper app for viewing this content".

I already have PDF viewers installed on the phone (Google PDF Viewer, Adobe Acrobat Reader). I can open the file when I open it via a file manager.

How can I open the PDF files by clicking directly on the WhatsApp message?

It turns out the trouble was that .PDF was in caps.

  • Hello TrueUser. How did you reach this conclusion that all uppercase alphabets in the file name causes the issue you described in your question?
