PDF Test Page

Option 1: Standard Link

Modern web-browsers have quite a sophisticated PDF viewer built-in. It is simple to implement and fully responsive ie it works on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

A thumbnail can be used to link to the document, but for this demo I have just inserted a simple text link

Standard link that opens the PDF in a new window

Option 2: In-Page Animated PDF Viewer

Note: this plug-in is one I picked at random. If you want to adopt an approach like this I would need to do some research and testing before selecting a PDF viewer the Messenger website.
