World’s number 1 chatting platform has a lot more to offer than it shows. Soon, you’ll get to know about 6 hidden features of WhatsApp, which you would not be knowing.
Read Receipts Hack
Whenever you send a message to someone you get a double tick on the message indicating that the message is delivered, which is followed by a blue tick when the message is read by the receiver. Whatsapp provides a feature of turning off the read receipts option with which nither you will see a blue tick nor the other person.
This feature can be annoying sometimes when the other person is ignoring you, he/she will read your message and you will be confused if the message is read or not.
So, this trick can be dissolved by a very simple method. To know how to disable read receipts feature follow:-
Now if your friend has read receipts disabled and you cannot see a blue tick even after he/she has read your messages. Follow these simple steps:-
Record A Message Using the WhatsApp Mic & send it. You Are Done.
Yes, it is that simple, now when your friend will listen to your voice note you will get a blue tick.
Earpiece Voice Message
It happens many-a-times when you get bored typing and start recording messages to continue the chat. Now, consider if you are in a public place and you want to hear a private voice message, you don’t want others to listen to that message and you lag earphones too. Then guess what? still, there is an option through which you can listen to your message privately. Just follow the steps:-
Play the message and lift your phone to your ears. The sensors would activate and the sound would come through the earpiece automatically.
Listening To Recorded Voice Message
Another problem occurs in message chatting, that is, you don’t get to listen to your recorded message first. When you have recorded along 2-4 minutes message you desire to listen to it yourself first instead of sending it and then listening to it. So, the hack for this problem is also really very simple:-
While recording your message simply swipe up to the lock. When you are done instead of sending the message, simply press the back button on your phone. Return to that person’s chat and you can play the audio and listen to it before sending it!
