Four tricks you didn’t about WhatsApp:
1. Chat without typing
With advancement in technology, WhatsApp now has complete integration with personal assistants like Siri and Google Assistant, which means you can verbally dictate to your phone and send messages without touching your phone. What you have to for you to use the service is activate your voice assistant after which you are good to go.
2. Create GIFs and send them
You can now create and send reaction gifs on WhatsApp just like in any other messenger app. They do a very nice job of keeping it hidden.
But it is plugged at the very lower part of the emoji menu where there is a link to gain access to Giphy’s full library. What is even superb, is if you are importing a video into WhatsApp and then cut it down to a small size say than 5 seconds, it turns automatically into a GIF, making it more ideal for creating the gifs in just about every situation that needs it.
3. Creating your own digital notebook
It is a bit of small hackery, but a little like Slack. You can easily open up a place for yourself to store and transfer notes, files, and about everything else without bothering about Dropbox, Bluetooth or emails.
Just tap on group chats with the other person, remove them and you will have a little corner of the internet all by yourself. WhatsApp provides you with voice recording. You can record your notes into it.
4. Getting rid of the blue ticks
Among the hidden beauties of WhatsApp is in the privacy settings where lies the decision to turn off or read receipts. This helps you to avoid complains of people who get irked by long seen periods without replying to them
