Whatsapp has swiftly grown from a small startup to one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, with over one billion users.
While you may use it every day, you might be unaware of the cool tricks and secret features hiding in the app.
Use WhatsApp on your computer
In your phone’s WhatsApp app, go to Settings > WhatsApp Web/Desktop and scan the barcode on the desktop app.
Reply directly to a message
Your reply will send with the message you are responding to embedded above it — similar to a how “quote retweet” works on Twitter.
No more Blue ticks
Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > switch off Read Receipts. If you switch off “last seen,” people will still be able to see when you’ve read their message (via the double blue tick), but they won’t be able to see when you were last online.
Tricking the Blue tick
Once you have received a message, go to the phones settings and change the configuration to ‘airplane mode’. Now when you open the message the sender won’t see the blue ticks until you open WhatsApp again.
Bold, italics, strike-through
To Bold, simply add (*) to the beginning and end of the word. Similarly, you can italicise by adding (_) to the beginning and the end and strike a word by adding (~).
Mute group conversations
Stop all WhatsApp notifications from interrupting you by popping up on your screen.
