Share Image to WhatsApp with Caption from your Android App



We have seen how to share Text Message to WhatsApp Application from your App, similarly we can also send Image contents with text caption to WhatsApp using Intents.

You need a URI variable that holds the image reference from your application or location on External or Internal storage and add the following lines to the Intent Object.

    intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM,uri);
    intent.setType("image/jpeg");


Lets crete and Android Application with a Activity screen containing a EditText to hold the caption message and Button to call the send Intent Object.

Layout file


    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context="com.code2care.example.whatsappintegrationexample.MainActivity"

    tools:ignore="HardcodedText" >     android:id="@+id/button1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_marginBottom="21dp"
    android:onClick="sendMessae"
    android:text="Send Image to WhatsApp" />

    android:id="@+id/imageToBeShared"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_marginTop="21dp"
    android:src="@drawable/mona" />

    android:id="@+id/caption"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="100dp"
    android:layout_alignParentRight="true"
    android:layout_below="@+id/imageToBeShared"
    android:layout_marginTop="64dp"
    android:background="#FFFFFFEF"
    android:ems="10"
    android:hint="Image Caption message text!!"
android:padding="10dp" />





Activity Java file :



package com.code2care.example.whatsappintegrationexample;

import java.io.FileNotFoundException;

import android.content.Intent;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.ActionBarActivity;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.EditText;

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

	private EditText message;

	@Override
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
		setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

		//Caption for the image!
		message = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.caption);

	}

	public void sendMessae(View v) throws FileNotFoundException {

		String whatsAppMessage = message.getText().toString();

		//You can read the image from external drove too
		Uri uri = Uri.parse("android.resource://com.code2care.example.whatsappintegrationexample/drawable/mona");
		
		
		
		Intent intent = new Intent();
		intent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
		intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, whatsAppMessage);
		intent.setType("text/plain");
		intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM,uri);
		intent.setType("image/jpeg");
		intent.setPackage("com.whatsapp");
		startActivity(intent);

	}

}


Result :

    Now when you run this App and Add a text to Caption Box and click "Send to WhatsApp" button, WhatsApp app will pop up and ask to Select a Contact, when you select one, you see the image with Caption text added to it.
