WhatsApp like a Pro: With these tricks you are up to date with the features of the messenger! Because they are so hidden that you do not even get them .
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 .
Tricks for Whatsapp News

faster to messages? Sure, of course! In iOS you go in the settings on “Messages” -> “WhatsApp”. Activate “In the lock screen”. For Android at the three points in the top right on “Settings” -> “Notifications” -> “Pop-up notifications” -> “Only if screen off”.

Cool: WhatsApp works like a word processor! When writing, press and hold a word until it appears highlighted. You can also mark several words or even a whole sentence. 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.

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.

Now you can during the conversation z. B. switch to another text chat or use another app. Attention: Until now this only works under the operating system Android 8!
WhatsApp is one of the most important communication tools today. The immediacy of information delivery, the ability to interact in different formats as well as the accessibility of the service are fundamental elements of its success.
A recent report issued by the company indicates that during the fourth quarter of 2017, WhatsApp registered 1.5 billion active users per month, which generated more than 60 billion messages through the application.
With this in mind, Facebook, the company that owns the platform, has developed various efforts to capitalize on the popularity of the app, opening this space as another option for brands to connect with their target audiences.
In this sense, WhatsApp maintains a rhythm of constant updates where a large part of these efforts aim to optimize the platform for commercial uses.
Such is the case of the new possible function that the messaging application will have, which has to do with adding a line of text to define the purpose of a WhatsApp group.
This is what the specialized site WABetaInfo refers to, whose information indicates that the users or the group administrator will be able to define a description for the groups, which will be visible to the current and future participants of the group, and will be published if the group has been shared.
When a user leaves the group the description will hide for that person. In this sense it is important to mention that it is expected that at the beginning all the participants can edit this description; it will be the task of the group administrator to restrict this function.
For brands this is a new opportunity as a point of contact and communication with users. Creativity will be put to the test in order to capitalize on this space with the solutions for companies made available by the platform.
WhatsApp is still thinking about how to become a platform that is functional for marketing and commerce, now it is in the field of brands to know how to capitalize on the space without being invaded by the consumer.
A few days ago we told you that WhatsApp is working to include the stickers, which will arrive very soon. The stickers that we already use in Facebook Messenger are coming to WhatsApp and we already know that they will be exclusive or some other details. Today, in addition, we know new packages.
Telegram already uses this type of stickers, also LINE or Facebook Messenger. WhatsApp comes a little late to the stickers but the company continues to strive in this new feature of which we already know its appearance and that continues to include new packs to make it as complete as possible.
We know that there will be stickers that match Facebook Messenger but there will be other exclusive ones. We also know that companies can launch stickers in specific promotion campaigns, for example. And although they are not available, today we can see many of the stickers that will arrive very soon.
They are not yet available in WhatsApp for iOS or WhatsApp for Android, not even in the beta version of the application. They are, but deactivated. We do not know when they will arrive but, as WA Beta Info shows, more and more stickers are added to the collection and we have already been able to take a look to know how they are.
Three new packs have been added to the collection: Cuppy, Salty and Bibimbap Friends. The first is a collection of coffee cups with different expressions. The second are designs and faces of different types and the third one seems, at first glance, that it is about pots and kitchen utensils doing things and also with different expressions. These three packs are added to those we had already seen with Unchi and Rollie among others.
At the moment we do not know when these new stickers will arrive but it seems that they are very close and we will have to wait very little to be able to use them day after day as we use the emojis in our conversations.
