5 hidden WhatsApp features
Famous chat app WhatsApp is complete of hidden features. We find 5 of them that will help you out
Whether you’re just beginning to use WhatsApp. Or are a years-long addict, you’re probably missing out on a few of these helpful, hidden features.
1. Get message details
Ever marvel what time a message was delivered or read? Swipe to the left on a message you sent to view those stats on your iPhone. Android users can long-press on a message, then tap on the “info” icon at the top of your screen.
2. Mute a conversation
When heading into a film or assembly, use WhatsApp’s mute characteristic to silence a chatty institution conversation or a friend who would not get the trace that you’re busy.
Android customers can long-press on a talk, then tap at the crossed-out speaker icon on the pinnacle of the screen. iPhone customers need to open a communication, then faucet on the contact or institution’s call at the pinnacle of the display followed via Mute.
WhatsApp presents the choice to mute a chat from eight hours to at least one year, which seems a bit like overkill.
3. Hide your last seen status
Don’t need friends or random contacts to know your “Last Seen” time? Open Settings > Account > Privacy > Last Seen.
WhatsApp provides three options: Everyone, My contacts, Nobody.
4. Use WhatsApp on a computer
As we’ve protected before you can use WhatsApp from a computer with relative ease.
The gist of the process includes deciding WhatsApp Web within the mobile app visiting web.whatsapp.com on your computer, and scanning a QR code with your phone.

5. Custom notifications
Alternatively, of having the same alert sound for every incoming message you can set custom alerts for person contacts. Doing so will make it easier to understand who messaged you without looking at your smartphone.
Android customers should tap on the Menu icon when viewing a talk thread, followed by View Contact > Custom notifications.
For those using WhatsApp on an iPhone, tap on the contact’s name when viewing a chat thread, then Custom Notifications.
Both devices give you the option to export with or without media attached.
