If you own an iPhone and use WhatsApp on a regular basis, you probably already know the basics of using this messenger app. But did you know that you can use some hacks to have a smoother and more pleasant experience with WhatsApp on your iPhone? If you don’t, this guide is for you! Browse through the tips below to learn more about WhatsApp hacks and turn yourself into an instant messaging pro.
Hack #1: Use Google to translate text within WhatsApp
Like many people, you probably use WhatsApp to reach out to foreign people, make new friends, and learn a new language. Unfortunately, chatting with people who speak a different tongue may not always be so easy, particularly if you’re not that familiar with their language. You can make this less difficult, though, by using the Google Translate app for iOS, which now allows in-app translation. With this new feature, you no longer have to switch between two apps to understand what your foreign friends say; simply copy the text in WhatsApp and a Google Translate button will pop up, allowing you to translate the text right there and then.
Hack #2: Recover lost WhatsApp messages through data recovery software
There are times when you delete messages on WhatsApp (either accidentally or not) then realize that you want them back. When this happens, you can use data recovery software like Dr.Fone to retrieve your messages. Dr.Fone, for example, allows you to directly scan your iPhone to retrieve chat histories or extract them from your iPhone iTunes backup file or iCloud backup file.
Hack #3: Know when your messages are read using the Info option
There are times when you just really, really have to know when your friends or family members read your messages. In these cases, just go to the specific message that you sent then tap and hold it. Pick the “Info” option from the menu that would pop up to know the exact time that your loved ones read your message.
Hack #4: Use a Cydia app to schedule WhatsApp messages.
If you want to greet your loved ones a happy birthday at 12:00 A.M. sharp without actually waking up at midnight, you’ll want to schedule your WhatsApp messages in advance. Unfortunately, your iPhone must be jailbroken before you can get your hands on a scheduler app. Already had your iPhone jailbroken? Simply head off to the Cydia app store and download the Message Scheduler for WhatsApp app, which costs $0.99.
These are just some of the hacks that you can use for WhatsApp for iPhone. Experiment with these tricks now and get the most out of your favorite messaging app!
