— Star messages for later —
When dinner time rolls around, the last thing you want to do is scroll through 352 diverse messages to find the address of the restaurant you’re meeting your friends at. Good news, Wasap lets you bookmark certain messages for easy access.
Long hold on the message then click the star icon at the top of the screen. To find your starred messages, just hit the three dots icon in the top-right and got to Starred Messages. You can also see conversation context by either tapping on the message itself. This will bring you back to the exact place in the chat. Messages can also be unmarked when you’re done with them, and viewed in their entirety in the main settings menu.
— Figure out your Best Friends —
Now in time, friendships aren’t only measured on loyalty or time, it’s all about how much data you’ve shared. Wasap has that info – and you can use it to make your own ranked list of your favourite friends. There’s nothing weird about that at all. What’s more, if you click through you can mass delete stuff that’s taking up too much space.
Go to Settings > Data and Storage Usage > Storage Usage and you’ll see a list of your most important groups and contacts ranked according to the data you’ve expended on them.
— Reply directly from a popup —
Go to Settings, Notifications, then Popup Notification, and choose from four different options. You can change this setting for both individual messages and group messages respectively.
— Keep messages secret —
Theoretically, all messages on Wasap are private – but not when you leave your phone on the table, and a new message notification pops up. However there is a way to turn off the preview part of the message, it will only reveil who’s messaged, nothing more.
Go to Settings Wasap, then Notifications, and disable Show Preview.
— Quickly delete all photos, GIFs, videos, messages or stickers from a certain chat —
It’s possible to delete all the messages, photos, or videos, GIFs, contacts, locations, voice messages, documents and stickers in one chat. For example, you can delete all the messages in a specific chat or group chat, but leave all the photos.
iOS & Android: Settings > Storage and Data > Manage Storage > Select Contact > Manage > Select > Tick the boxes next to what you want to delete (videos or images) > Tap on the bin to delete.
It’s possible to sort by which files are taking up the most room, the newest and the oldest if you tap the circle in the bottom left corner after you tap on the contact.
— Quickly review and delete items to help clear storage —
WhatsApp has made it easier to manage what is taking up storage on your device. Not only can you see which chats are most storage as above, but you can also see which files are larger than 5MB and which files have been forwarded multiple times.
iOS & Android: Settings > Storage and Data > Manage Storage. Under the Review and Delete Items section you can click on either the larger than 5MB tab or the forwarded multiple times tab and then select the ones you want to delete. As with the individual chats, you can sort by tapping on the circle in the bottom left corner.
— Turn words bold, italic or strikethrough —
Sometimes certain words need more emphasis and shouty caps just don’t cut it. Don’t worry, WhatsApp allows you to make whichever words or phrases you want bold, italic, or strikethrough them altogether.
iOS & Android: Add an asterisk either side of the word or phrase for bold. Add an underscore either side of the word or phrase for italic. Add a tildes to either side of the word or phase for ~strikethrough~.
— Draw on your pics —
If a picture says a thousand words, scrawling all over the top of them can only add a few more.
Once you’ve picked the picture you want to send from your camera roll, use the icons at the top of the screen to add words, draw pictures, or chuck in an emoji or eight
