WhatsApp went through many changes since its launch, but its complete transformation started in 2014, after it was bought by Facebook. Developers have promised that they will bring the voice calling feature and they kept their promise, but along the way, they introduced features that were a total surprise. Below, we’ll tell you about some of the things you didn’t know you can do in or with WhatsApp.
Bold, Italics Or Strike-through Text
Text formatting is one of the most recent features that were added to the application and it allows you to send a bolded text by putting it between asterisks. Also, to italicize a text, add “_” in front and at the end and to strike a word, add “~”.
Disable Blue Ticks
The annoying blue tick will inform your friends that you’ve read their messages. So, if you want to read their messages without letting them know that, go to your account, privacy and uncheck the “read receipts” feature. But after disabling it, you won’t know either if your friends will read your messages.
Save Your Chat History
This can be done by opening settings, going to chats and tapping on chat backup. You will select to save your chat history weekly or monthly, no matter if they include photos or videos.
Send A Giant Heart
Are you in love and want to show your partner that you’re a romantic person? Insert a heart emoji in your message and send it without adding anything else. Let us know how your girlfriend or boyfriend has reacted after seeing the giant heart.
Transfer Videos Between Your Phone And PC
This is what you need to do, if you want a video to be available on your PC. First, you will create a group, add friends and delete them. Then open WhatsApp Web on your PC, log into your account by scanning the QR code and after that transfer the video through the WhatsApp group.
Change Your WhatsApp Wallpaper
At some point, you will get bored of your wallpaper and you’ll want to change it. And it’s very simple, as all you will need to do is to go to settings, chats and wallpaper and choose another image to be the new wallpaper.
