How to share a PDF on an Android.

Keep your files and workflow moving when you’re on the go with two different ways to send PDFs from an Android.

Whether you’re passing along a work proposal, professional invoice, or even class notes for a big exam, PDFs are some of the most widely shared documents online — but that doesn’t mean you have to be tethered to your computer to send them. In just a few simple steps, you can send PDFs from the palm of your hand with your Android device.

Send PDFs directly from your Android device.

One way to send a PDF is by using your Android’s native tools. This method is ideal if you just want a simple way to share a file without any additional capability to edit or mark up the document.

  1. Open the PDF you’d like to share.
  2. On the action bar on the top of the screen, tap the share button.
  3. Select the method for sharing. For example, if you’re wondering how to send PDFs in Messenger, you can select the option for that here.
  4. Tap Share to complete the action.

Send your documents with PDF software.

If you’re someone who manages a lot of PDFs and are often on your Android device, you might want to consider using a mobile app like Acrobat Reader to share and organize files. Once you download the app, here’s how easy it is to share your documents:

  1. Open the Acrobat app.
  2. Navigate to the PDF you wish to send.
  3. Tap the send icon on the top right portion of the screen.
  4. In the new dialog box, you have the option to share via email, or you can send a copy via AirDrop, Messages, or other third-party apps such as WhatsApp.

With Adobe Acrobat , you can do even more with your PDFs — like editing, creating, exporting, organizing, and combining files — all from your Android device. See everything you can do with Acrobat today.
