How To Convert Word(.doc, .docx) To PDF On Android

Recently WhatsApp released the PDF document sharing in the app. Its an useful feature for android users because a PDF file can be sent to other users without any alteration. A PDF viewer app will render the file in same way as it is rendered by other software. A MS word document on the other hand can be edited and has no guarantee that will appear the same way on another device as it appears on on e device. Basically most android word document reader apps may not correctly display the word file.

Some may show improper characters, missing characters or non-aligned text. However these doc files works perfectly on a tablet or a computer but may not display properly on smaller screens. Smaller screens may display the whole file in a single column which may make the paragraphs difficult to read.

While a PDF file doesn't have such problems. Once you create a file it will universally appear the same on any device you use. It can't be edited and works as a screenshot of the pure text. There are many ways for android in which you can convert webpages as PDF files, these webpages may contain anything from text to images. But we are here to talk about MS word documents having the extension .doc or .docx.
