WhatsApp tricks

Type in a Bold📜Font in WhatsApp

This option is very interesting since it allows you to highlight something that you consider important so that the other person will pay more attention. To activate it you need to place an asterisk (*) before and after the word or phrase that you want to make bold.

🔲Make the Text Italic on WhatsApp

This option allows that when writing an appointment via WhatsApp it can be seen more clearly. To activate this option you must place an underscore ( _ ) before and after the word or phrase that you want to be in italics.

Apply Strikethrough❌ to any text

The strikethrough option is very useful if you want to correct something or show that something is not right, this option, like the others, will be activated including the accent (~) before and after the word or phrase that you want to strikeout.

Apply Monospace to your Messages😎

This option is used more for aesthetics or to focus on a specific text. To activate it, you must place inverted quotes (“`) before and after the word or text that we want to become monospaced.

Add a contact to your home screen👨🏿‍🤝‍👩🏾‍🤝‍🧑🏻

The option shown below is very useful in the case of having a frequent and important client since by being able to add it to our home screen we will always have it in view so that it will never be overlooked and also this adds comfort when it comes to having to start a conversation.

To add a chat to your phone’s home screen, open the contact or group in question, then tap the three-dot menu in the upper right corner. From here, visit More> Add Shortcut. Then just tap on Auto Add or long-press the icon to place it on your home screen.

Create a custom 📁notification for a contact

If you run a business and the way to communicate with your customers is via WhatsApp, this solution will interest you a lot since it allows you to customize customer notifications so that without having to look at the mobile you can already know who has written to you.

To create a custom notification, you will need to enter a chat with the desired contact. From here, you need to tap on your name at the top of the chat window and choose Custom Notifications.

Once you’ve entered this menu, you’ll want to check the box labeled Use custom notifications and scroll down to the next field to customize the alert. Customization options include changing the tone of the message and adjusting the LED notification color for the contact.

💻Use WhatsApp on your PC

When you are continuously answering messages for your business via WhatsApp, it may be easier for you to answer on a computer keyboard since it is usually faster. This option is available via WhatsApp web.

To get started, visit web.whatsapp.com on your computer. The website will display a QR code, which can be read on the WhatsApp mobile application. On your phone, tap on the three-dot menu in the upper right corner, then select WhatsApp Web to launch the QR code reader. Now, scan the website’s QR code through your phone’s QR code reader and you’re done.

Star⭐messages (or bookmark®)

To find messages quickly and easily is the best option since if we are talking with a client we can mark certain messages that we can take a look at later in a simple way. We can mark the messages we want as favorites by going to the command with its symbol (a star) in the menu that appears when clicking on a message.

To see them we have to go to the settings tab, the access being under the web / desktop client option. They come out in chronological order according to how we have marked them (oldest first).

Use WhatsApp a number other than our SIM card📱

As we probably know, WhatsApp asks us for a phone number to activate the account and to log in, sending an SMS with a code. Actually, the active SIM is necessary only for this and not for use once we have it activated, so once this is done we can change the SIM or remove it from the phone without logging out or losing anything.

Secretly reading📧 messages

The person who writes you can see whether or not you have read the message is a bit uncomfortable at times since you may have read the message but not answer it because you are busy, which can lead to misunderstandings. the best option in these cases is to deactivate the blue ticks so that nobody will be able to see if you read the messages or not. Selecting “Settings ⚙”, then “Account” and then “Privacy“, there you will find an option to “read receipts“, just turn it OFF!📴

Know🕵️‍♂️who has read your messages in a group

Knowing who has read the messages within a group at first seems a bit complicated since the ticks appear differently than a normal chat. when a single tick appears it simply means a message sent. when two appear it means that the participants have received the message, however, it is not until the two ticks turn blue until you know that the whole group has read it. To find out who has read it before the two blue ticks are placed simply long-press on the message you have sent and click the ‘i’ (information) button on the top. This option will tell you how many people have received the message, how many have yet to receive it, and how many have read it.

Find out the exact time 🕜someone has read your text.

This magical feature works for both Android and IOS devices. All you have to do was just hold on to any of your messages you are interested in and choose “info”, there you’ll see the time your message was sent and also the time it was read.
