Did you know that you can now move messages to write answers? Or who can prioritize your contacts and give special notifications to your boss? In recent months, Facebook, the owner of WhatsApp has prioritized the development of popular instant messaging platforms. We show three features that you might not know.
Users can use popular stickers in the application. Features available in Messenger chat, Instagram Stories or Telegram chat are enabled for Android and iOS devices.
To use it, you must have version 2.18.101 from WhatsApp. Click on the option to send emoticons (smiley face icon). Then, in the text panel in the chat, a new option for stickers, with a sticker icon will be displayed at the bottom, next to the icon associated with emojis and gifs.
By clicking on the option, you will find a sticker that has been determined. If you want to access other designs, you can search in the text panel for the + button, which will take you to the sample sticker package to download.
Listen to audio before sending it
Another new thing is that you can record voice notes and with certain movements set them. If you want to record without limits, for example, so you don't have to press the microphone button continuously, start recording audio and without releasing it slowly upwards. A lock icon will appear and you will see that you can record without pressing. To send just press the send button.
If you truly regret what you say or when recording a background sound that you cannot avoid, you can discard the audio before sending it by dragging the tape, holding it, to the left. There you will see a trash icon and you can try again.
Finally, there is a simple trick to listen to your audio without removing it and without sending it immediately. To achieve this, you must press the microphone to send a message and block the recording of the message by swiping up. Then, leave the conversation by pressing the button to return to all chats. Enter the conversation again and you will find buttons to play, others to delete and others to send audio after listening.
Manage your contacts
Users can also adjust, prioritize, and review the activities they have in the application to see for example with whom their contacts speak more. You can, for example, identify how many photos or audio messages have been shared in group conversations or chats.
To access this function, go to & # 39; Settings & # 39 ;, & # 39; Data and Storage & # 39; and select the option & # 39; use storage & # 39 ;. There you will find a list sorted by the amount of data exchanged. By selecting one, you can see how many messages, photos or documents have been exchanged.
In this menu you can also adjust the way in which the activities of each conversation will be notified in the & # 39; personalized notifications & # 39; option. Where you can change the tone, light and vibration.
WhatsApp warns if messages are sent automatically. You can also respond to certain messages by swiping left. The text you type will return the message and appear as an answer.
