No doubt that WhatsApp is currently one of the most widely used messaging app in the world. An estimate of about one billion people are said to be making use of the messaging app globally, thanks to its availability on both Android and iOS platforms.
However, despite making use of the app every day doesn’t mean the user knows everything about the app. So in this post, we are going to be discussing some nice features you possibly haven’t tried out on your WhatsApp.
How To Know Who Has Read Your Message In A Group Chat
This a tricky one. We sometimes get frustrated when we pass a message in a group and no one responds. But with this feature, the sender can tell who and who has read your group message.
To do check, simply press and hold the message you have sent and hit the ‘i’ button on the top on Android (‘info’ on an iPhone). The app will then show you all the people from the group who have read that particular message and the time they read it.
How To Listen To Voice Message Discreetly
One of the exciting features of WhatsApp is the fact that you can send a Voice Note (VN) to someone if you don’t feel like typing. The problem, however, is how to listen to the voice note. The recipient might not be in a conducive environment to listen to the voice note on speaker, and this could lead to a delayed response.
To listen to a message discretely, users simply need to play the voice message and put the phone next to their ear which would automatically play the message on the earpiece. Simple as using your hand to trace your mouth!
How To Send Gifs In A Jiffy
GIF is a feature becoming very popular. Why not send a GIF instead of an emoji? GIFs are moving pictures.
One of the reasons people rarely use GIFs is because if the stress of finding a suitable one for the chat scenario. But now, you don’t have to search the internet for appropriate GIFs. WhatsApp has its own collection of GIFs. To get yours;
- All you have to do is
- Tap on the ‘+’ sign,
- Go to Photo & Video Library.
- Can you find that magnifying glass icon next to GIF? If yes, tap it and you’ll find a collection powered by Tenor (or the smiley face on Android and click on GIF down).
If you cannot find what you need? Simply tap the search bar to look for the GIF that perfectly sums up your feelings.
How To Who You Chat With The Most
Well, there’s a way to know who you actually have been taking most of your time on WhatsApp on Chat. Just in case your spouse alleges that you spend more time with other people more than you do with him.
All you need to do is simple.
Go to Settings > Data and Storage Usage > Storage Usage and you’ll see a list of your most important groups and contacts ranked according to the data you’ve expended on them.
How Know Your Friend’s Location On WhatsApp
Virtually everbody have been a victim of that “I am on the way” lie when the person hasn’t even left the bed. To avoid getting duped again, insist that the contact shares their current location with you by tapping on the arrow icon next to the text box and then Share Location.
There’s also a way of preventing them from manually entering their location. The way the location appears is a clue. If it’s a real GPS-based location, the location share will appear as a dropped pin, but if it’s a location they entered, its address will appear beside the dropped pin.
