Tricks for WhatsApp chats
• Using Photo Stickers
Mega News for iPhone users: For them, since the latest update to WhatsApp, there are photo stickers that show the user’s current time and location. You can find them via the Emoji button in the photo editing. Besides chats, you can also use them for your status and editing GIFs or videos.
• Chatting Chats
Very simple: Tip under “Chats” as long as the desired chat with WhatsApp, until it is grayed out, then in the toolbar on the Pin. So you keep in spite of many conversations always your most important in view!
• Search for terms
Need some info from one of your Whats app chats? Open the menu and tap on “Search”. Now enter the desired term – the results will be highlighted.
• Responding to individual participants in group chats
To reply to a specific message in a WhatsApp group chat, tap and hold on it. Then select (on Android) the left arrow or “Reply” (on iOS). But you do not have to entertain the entire group: Put a “@” in front of the name of a group member. So it gets a direct message from you – even with a mute group!
• Share your live location
In a WhatsApp chat or group , select the “+” sign – a menu will appear, including the “Location” option. At this point you activate the “live location”. Privacy advocates find this rather questionable – but the function is very useful when you are on the way to someone or visit expected: you see when the other arrives. Also, you can let others know that you are in a safe place. If several users in a group share their location, they can all be seen on the map at the same time .

Then tap on the option symbol in the dialog box that appears and scroll to the formatting options. Now you can edit your text as you like!
• Share full photo albums
iPhone owners were the first to use this feature in the official app: if you send at least four photos at once, WhatsApp will automatically group them together for an album! Anyone who wants can then access all the images belonging to the respective album. Only these are by default no longer individually and each other displayed in the chat window – which is much clearer than the previous presentation.
• Delete messages

As confirmation appears “This message was deleted” – unfortunately also at the receiver! To delete multiple messages, hold down the first one until it is highlighted.

• Video calls with picture-in-picture feature

To take screenshots with iPad, iPad Pro or iPhone. Incidentally, the procedure is very easy!
To take a screenshot of a content on the iPad screen, you do not need another digital camera. Nor do you have to put the smartphone on the next copier or scanner to take a screenshot.
Create screenshot with iPad
Create screenshot with iPhone
The iPhone works the same way. The on / off button can be found on the iPhone from the model generation 6 at the top right edge of the case, previously (up to and including iPhone 5S and iPhone SE), the switch was mounted above. The Home button, however, is the only button on the front of the iPhone. It’s best to first press the on / off button and then hit the Home button, because a little bit longer pressure on this will activate Siri – so you run the risk of being connected to the voice assistant if it’s not fast enough also press the on / off switch.
Take a screenshot with the Apple Watch
Even until watch OS 3.2, the screenshots on the Apple Watch often get inadvertently, you only had to press the digital crown and the side key next to it at the same time. Since the latest version, there is a backup. Say, who wants to take screenshots on the Apple Watch, must activate the function for the first time. The controller can be found in the watch app on the iPhone in the “General” section. The screenshots taken land as usual in the folder “Screenshots” on the iPhone.
Incidentally, screenshots of the iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple Watch have something in common that sets them apart a great deal from those on the Mac : the principle “completely or not at all” applies – only the entire screen can be scanned and no excerpts from it. Similarly, the format of the images can not be selected, iOS always saves them as PNG.
