10 Features That You Never Knew Existed In WhatsApp

These are the top 10 features in WhatsApp which you never knew they existed in the app!

1. Hide Blue Ticks!



Are you one of those users who keep worrying about the dreaded blue double tick? It is indeed possible to now hide the blue tick marks so that others won’t know you have read their messages. But, the catch is that you will not be able to see if others have read your messages too. If you still want to give this a try, here’s how to do it. Go to Settings -> Account -> Privacy. Uncheck ‘Read Receipts’. Done!



2. Formatting Messages


Who doesn’t love customised text? If you are one among those who can’t do without it, WhatsApp has a really cool feature that allows you to send bold, italicised text and even strikethrough effect! 
For bold: add an asterisk {*} before and after your desired words : e.g. *Kevera*
For italics: add an underscore {_} before and after your desired words : e.g. _Kevera_
For strikethrough: add a tilde {~} before and after your desired words : e.g. ~Kevera~

Also, feel free to mix and match to try various combinations of bold and italics, italics and strikethrough etc.



3. Reply to Messages Without Updating Last Seen!



You can now conveniently reply for your messages directly from the home screen, thanks to the pop up feature in WhatsApp! To set this up and save some precious time, go to Settings -> Notifications -> Popup Notification and you can then choose when to make these pop ups appear, according to your convenience.This doesn't change your last seen too! ;}



4. Crash WhatsApp!



Expecting a text from your loved one and you open WhatsApp eagerly to find its just one of those texts from the million groups you are a part of? You can now effectively cause more trouble to them than they do to you. Simple, open web.whatsapp.com on your browser, preferably Chrome. Copy paste a VERY large text {upto 4000 characters} and just hit send! Make sure your message has been delivered {single grey tick}. Now, whenever any of the guys in that group tries opening the group, WhatsApp crashes and they will be forced to leave the group or delete the chat. Sweet way of revenge, eh? Be warned that group moderators may kick you with this stunt! :P This also works for personal message!


5. Read All Messages without Affecting Last Seen!


One of the best features in WhatsApp and my personal favourite as well, is the WhatsApp widget. I am sure millions before me have also felt the need to read their WhatsApp messages without coming online and giving away their last seen time. This is possible, thanks to the less-known widget feature of WhatsApp. To try this out, just add a widget and choose WhatsApp {4x2} and place it on the home screen of your phone. Now, you will simply be able to read all the messages you receive {the sender’s name as well as the contents} by looking at your home screen instead of going inside WhatsApp! Try this out right now, you can thank me later.



6. Join Any WhatsApp Group of your Interest!


A really cool thing about WhatsApp is that it is so popular that there exists thousands of third-party services intended to make WhatsApp better. One such notable third-party service is messengery.com. Instead of being forced and added to the useless groups, this one actually enables you to pick and choose which group you want to be a part of. Say, you are an avid Cricket follower and want to know about all the things happening in Cricket and discuss it with fellow-minded people passionate about Cricket, you could simply pick ‘Cricket’ group and send a request to be added to it in messengery.com. They value your privacy seriously and make sure you find what you need without having to give away your number in public forums. Check them out and you will find it worth your time.



7. End to End Privacy


Bothered about your privacy in WhatsApp? WhatsApp values your privacy seriously as well, their end-to-end encryption ensures that. Messages {text/photos} which you send can only be seen by the intended receiver and no party which intercepts your messages, even WhatsApp themselves, can not see what you send. This is a serious step towards protecting customer privacy. Some law enforcement agencies have come out in full force against it, yet WhatsApp have remained strong in their stance. here’s hoping to continued support and outstanding service from WhatsApp.


8. Another Way to Reply without affecting Last Seen!


To send WhatsApp messages without opening the application or without changing your last seen, here’s a simple trick. Just open Google Now or say “Ok Google”. Say, “Send a WhatsApp message to Joe.”. It will prompt you asking for your message. Say your message and Google does the work for you, tada! This can come handy in a lot of situations, make sure you remember this!



9. How to know if someone has blocked you!


Ever wondered why someone whom you take to regularly has suddenly stopped talking to you? Calm down and take it down a notch. He/She has blocked you already! Just take a look at their contact, if their display picture has disappeared, along with their last seen and status as well, it is a very promising sign that you have been blocked. And if your message to them always remains with a single grey tick, you can be sure that they have blocked you.




10. Save Time!


Here’s to the best hack ever about WhatsApp! Want to save a lot of time in your day and stop worrying about things that don’t even matter? Uninstall your WhatsApp. There’s nothing better that you can do.
