PDF Viewer in Sharepoint List



I've got a Sharepoint List, and added a custom Powerapps Form, where you can add attachments. 

They are always in pdf format, with the basic sharepoint form I can open them directly in the browser. 
But if I use the powerapps form, I have to download the file..

Is there any way to get a PDF Viewer inside the powerapps form?

To answer your question, "Is there any way to get a PDF Viewer inside the powerapps form?"


No, there is no proper way to add a PDF Viewer insider the form.


There are ways available to view the PDF files from the SharePoint list attachments, follow the guide below:

Another blog talking about a similar workaround:
