Whatsapp is a truly incredible messaging application but the sad thing is that 99% of the people who use it probably don’ even take advantage of half of its functionality and this article aims to change just that. WhatsApp Tricks!!
So one thing you probably have heard of is WhatsApp web simply tapping the little menu button at the top and clicking WhatsApp web on your smartphone enables you to scan a QR code on laptop and then set up the WhatsApp application on your Mac or PC and that’s all well and good. It works quickly it’s faster to type on an actual keyboard and it seems almost instantaneously with your smartphone and the synchronization whilst useful in its own right actually creates the opportunity for an even more useful tool.
Message yourself on WhatsApp
What you need to do is to add your own contact using your own number in your smartphone you’ll then be able to message yourself on WhatsApp and what this means is that if you ever want to transfer a file between your phone and your laptop simply send it through WhatsApp message yourself on WhatsApp and almost instantaneously it’ll appear on the other side so it saves you the fast is having to plug in your smartphone and transfer it manually.
So for almost all of us you’re going to have a few people who talk to a lot and most of the people who you don’t so for these two people you can add a chat shortcut what this does is creates an icon a bit like a sub-application on your home screen and then in terms of customization you can treat this as a standalone app you can move it around You can rearrange it you can even change the icon to anything else you want and of course as a progression of that you can add all your favorite contacts as little icons you could put them all together into one folder for example and call it your favorite.
Whatsapp also gives you the option to star a message and essentially this is the equivalent of placing a little bookmark in your conversation all you do is hold down on something relevant that someone said and tap the star button above and then if you ever want to refer back to it hit the menu icon from your main menu and click start messages and from here you can see all of them from all the different contacts just as an example you could use this to remember all the things that you need to get done and if you have a click on one of those stars there it’ll take you back into that point in the conversation to give you some context.
So then we have a little application which I have featured in the past so and spend too much time on it But it’s highly relevant here this is called text converter it’s a fun way of basically sending a message in an alternative format you can dress it up in a pattern you can change the style of the text lots of little fun things you can do it’s really spiced up the conversation you simply type the message you want to send into the app and then just by tapping on one of the variations of it. It’ll automatically copy that to your clipboard and there are so many options here everything from reverse upside-down text to more code.
I think we can all share the pain of trying to get something organized while working in a group chat and the answer to this is in a broadcast and what this allows you to do is to send the kind of message you would be sending to a group but instead each party actually receives it as if it were a direct message to the people you’ve contacted are going to feel like they’ve been individually messaged and therefore they’re probably more likely to respond and probably less likely to start some off the topic conversation.
SEND ANY FILE
So then we’ve got a plugin called send any File it’s an attachment that essentially extends the functionality of what’s up and to be honest, considering its name it shouldn’t need too much explaining so Whilst what’s up does support a lot of file types there are also quite a few which it doesn’t support and it also applies a quite heavy compression on a lot of high-quality photos and videos and the idea of this extension is that it bypasses that you could send us higher resolution a photo as you want or you could send your entire movie library it might take a little bit of time but in the end the end product they receive will be of full quality.
It’s particularly useful for WhatsApp so the same bubbles you see on Facebook Messenger can also be enabled for other applications such as WhatsApp and this just gives you a little bit more freedom to use full-screen apps at the same time as carrying on a conversation.
So guys I really hope you enjoyed this article and I hope it made you realize that what that is actually a pretty cool little thing.
