WhatsApp tips and tricks

The most popular Messenger is with over a billion users WhatsApp. At this point, you will find all the tips and tricks for old features and we keep you up to date with updates on new WhatsApp features. Update: Did you know that you can break your voice recordings and cross words?

So makes your video calls

Many ways lead to the video call. In the meantime, you can reach most of your friends via video call in WhatsApp. We will tell you separately how WhatsApp video calls work and how much data the video calls in WhatsApp or alternatives.

Becomes the first new features in the WhatsApp beta program

If you want to have the official version of the upcoming update, you can use the WhatsApp beta program. Also this version is officially updated via the Play Store. The button for registration is available on the Play Store page of WhatsApp.

The WhatsApp beta is soon to be able to retrieve sent messages. So far, however, there are only rumors that we are dealing with in another artiekl.

Tells spammers to block contacts in WhatsApp

In WhatsApp you can block messages from unknown numbers and report them as spam. The option appears immediately after a message is received from an unknown number. If there are too many complaints to the relevant number at Whatsapp, then those are excluded from the service.

Of course you can also block any of your WhatsApp contacts if they bother you. The gentle method is to mute them. The hard method is also found in the Chat menu under More, where you find the Block entry. Then the WhatsApp contact can not call you any more.

In the Settings under Account, Privacy, you can see Blocked Contacts. Here you can either add additional WhatsApp contacts to the block or release them again, thus canceling the blockade.

Formatted text in WhatsApp
In WhatsApp, you can write phrases or words both in bold and italic. For a WhatsApp message to be bold / italic / crossed, you need to set the word or sentence in the Markdown style to special characters:
  • Stars for * bold words *
  • Underline for _cursive words_
  • Stars and underscores for * a _combination_ *
  • Tilden for ~ pierced words ~
WhatsApp Formatting
Only in the editor of WhatsApp can you recognize the formatting characters. In the chat window the finished formatted text ends up. / © CoolANDROIDTips
Hide profile, status, last online and disabled blue hook in WhatsApp
If you are in public group chats, you should hide your image, status and Last Online.
  • Go to Settings> Account> Privacy.
  • Here you can specify whether "Everyone", "Nobody" or "My Contacts" see anything.

Marks WhatsApp messages as unread

You have received a long WhatsApp message, but have not been able to read it yet? Marks the entire chat as unread to remind you later. Note, however, that the unread marked conversation does not appear unread to the sender. If you have activated the blue hooks, the sender will still consider the message to be read.

You can mark a WhatsApp message as unread by tapping the sender long in the main window and marking his last message in the window that opens. A green dot indicates that there are unread messages here.

Answer messages faster with pop-ups

Thanks to the so-called pop-up notifications, you will be informed immediately when a friend writes to you. So you can answer him without delay.

The pop-ups even wake your smartphone from standby, if you wish. If someone sends you a message, the message and a response area are displayed immediately.

In Android Nougat the effort with the notification pop-ups is superfluous. Here you can simply open the notification and type the answer in it. In the previous Android versions Lollipop and Marshmallow, you could pick up the response pop-up via the heads-up notifications and answer WhatsApp messages without opening WhatsApp itself. A question of time, when WhatsApp removes the pop-up option, as described above, from its menu.

Favorited WhatsApp messages

Saves funny news, pictures or important information as favorites. Under Star-marked you can find these messages again. So you can find the best jokes, beautiful pictures and most important moments at a glance.

Use WhatsApp by voice command

Does your Google language command work? Then you can also control WhatsApp. The voice command "OK Google" followed by "Send Paul a WhatsApp" or "Send a WhatsApp to Paul" opens a message dialog. Then you dictate the message. If everything is correctly recognized, you confirm the shipping with a "Yes".

Make a WhatsApp backup with Google Drive

You plan to buy a new Android smartphone in the near future, but you do not want to lose your WhatsApp chats? Then, in the WhatsApp settings, you can safely back up all chats and shared media, such as photos and videos, to Google Drive. The following prerequisites apply:
  • An enabled Google account on the smartphone
  • Google Play services installed on the smartphone from Google Play (available from Android 2.3.4)
  • Enough free space on Google Drive
  • Enough space on the smartphone memory for a backup

The restoration is done automatically on the new mobile phone during the setup. On the new smartphone, WhatsApp searches for backups in your Google account. Be sure to give WhatsApp the necessary permissions beforehand, otherwise restoring your chats will fail. In the WhatsApp FAQ you will find all the solutions.

Answer WhatsApp messages on the PC or on the tablet

With the add-on app Pushbullet you can answer WhatsApp messages on the PC. The service is easier to set up on more devices than WhatsApp Web. Just set up the app in your smartphone and browser of your PC, tablet, another PC and even more devices, and display notifications for WhatsApp, calls, or SMS synchronously on all devices and respond to them on one of the devices.

Brecht's voice recordings

You've been tied up and want to stop the recording of the voice? Wipe when recording to the left, away from the microphone button. Then the previous recording is rejected.

Hears voice messages quietly

In WhatsApp, you do not have to listen to the voice message in any way. To make sure this does not happen, press Play and hold the smartphone to your ear. So the large loudspeaker is deactivated and only you hear the message only softly in the ear, as with a telephone call.

Export the whole conversation as an e-mail

To send a WhatsApp conversation with all messages by e-mail, you will be similar: Simply tap the desired contact in the conversation list and select "Send Chat via E-Mail". The chat history is then automatically added as an e-mail attachment. If you want, you can even add all the shared media. Ideal if you want to send the data to a friend if he does not use WhatsApp anymore.

Retrieves all media sent and received

To access all the images and videos that you exchanged with a contact, you do not have to worry about the file manager. Just tap the menu button in the chat history and control media, then you can see all the pictures and videos. Attention: MP3 songs are stored there, but not the sent voice messages. You can find these directly in the WhatsApp folder under Media> WhatsApp Voice Notes sorted by date.

Deletes WhatsApp images, frees memory space

In the case of an acute lack of space on your smartphone, it is a good idea to transfer the collected photos from the smartphone to another memory or delete them. WhatsApp puts all your pictures in the public memory of your smartphone. This is insecure, but comfortable from the point of view. This is how you can find the pictures with each gallery app.

Share the images and upload them to a cloud store. On the computer you can find the photos in the directory / WhatsApp / Media / WhatsApp Images /. Cut them out and save them somewhere else.

Uses WhatsApp without SIM card

WhatsApp can be used with a trick even without SIM card and handynummer in the WLAN network. For example, you can register a landline number. The confirmation code is actually sent by SMS, but after about five minutes you can also let the code be communicated by telephone. Just type the code and you can use WhatsApp on a device without a SIM card. However, the number can also be used for exactly one WhatsApp account, just as for mobile phone numbers.

WLAN amplification: Tips for optimization and cheap repeaters

In other words, WhatsApp does not need any physical connection to the SIM card with the registered number. So if you switch the SIM card once on holiday, WhatsApp will not turn you into a knit: you just keep chatting under the old code. Only with a new activation, your old number must be available for the confirmation code. Otherwise, you need to change the number using the wizard included in WhatsApp, and tell your contacts about your new number.

Restores deleted chat histories

If you accidentally delete your chat history, there is a simple way to restore it. To do this, you just need to uninstall WhatsApp, and then tap Restore after the registry to ask for the restoration of your chat history. WhatsApp creates a backup in the background automatically every 24 hours, which is stored on the smartphone. If you start before such a backup and after the deletion of the chat process as restoration, you get to the old state. In the meantime, however, the chat history is overwritten by the old backup.

Mutes contacts and groups

You have a contact from which you do not want to hear anything? Or a WhatsApp group is just bothering you? You can either temporarily or permanently mute them so they do not distract you anymore. To do this, tap the three points in the group chatting in the upper right corner, then Mute. Selects the period and no more notifications are displayed. For individual contacts, the Mute button is hidden behind More.

Alternatively, you can select multiple chats in the chat area and mute them. Keep the first chat pressed longer, then tapping more and then tapping on the crossed-out loudspeaker in the upper right. Finally, you choose a duration.

Broadcast messages to many recipients

You want to send a message to multiple recipients, without seeing who has it? For this purpose, WhatsApp has introduced the broadcast feature.

How to use it:

  • Tap the settings (the three dots on the top right)
  • Tap New Broadcast
  • Enter the names of the desired recipients
  • Tap Create
  • Write your message and send it

Creates Homescreen shortcuts for the favorite contacts

Do you have friends or groups you write more frequently? Put them directly on the homescreen and save time.

  • In WhatsApp, tap the Chats area
  • Select and hold the contact
  • In the pop-up window, tap Add chat link
  • Now a shortcut in the form of the profile of the contact will be stored on your Homescreen from where you can jump directly into the WhatsApp-Chat.
