This feature will also help you send files from your computer to your mobile phone and vice versa. Simply select the conversation you created on WhatsApp Web or your phone and upload a file. The document will be available on both devices. Do not forget that if you are performing a backup to Google Drive, everything you send yourself will be included. Thus, it is also a good way to store all kinds of information and keep it safe.
