Does anyone have a  suggestion as to how I can send out a broadcast-like message to a lot of people? The broadcast feature has a 256 person limit and also wont send it to anyone who doesnt have your number saved in their phone. I'm wondering if there is an app that can do this through whatsapp.
I did google it. I am now asking for a recommendation as to which one is the best service. I need to send out a PDF document. Thank you

Mass email would work?
