In this article, we’ll explore three new WhatsApp settings that can make your life a whole lot easier. For starters, you can now set a notification sound for individual chats. This will help your contacts know when you were last online. You can also assign different bleeps to group chats.
WhatsApp’s new trick enables you to turn on disappearing messages
Disappearing messages on WhatsApp can be turned on for individual chats or groups. This new trick can be enabled by group admins or the users themselves. When the feature is turned on, the message will be seen in the chat, but will disappear when you open the app again.
Disappearing messages are great for preserving your privacy and keeping conversations organized. It also reduces the possibility of sensitive messages falling into the wrong hands. Moreover, you don’t have to turn on the feature for each individual chat. Using this new trick is easy and convenient.
To turn on disappearing messages on WhatsApp, follow the steps below: o First, open the app and go to Settings. Tap on the “message timer” option. Once enabled, select the duration for the messages to disappear. This timer will be applied to new messages and won’t affect older messages.
After you enable the new feature, you can now configure your conversations to enable the new feature. Depending on your preferences, you can enable the feature for specific chats or for all your conversations. In addition, you can choose the time frame for the messages to disappear.
WhatsApp automatically saves media
WhatsApp automatically saves media to your phone gallery. You can manually delete these files if they’re not important to you. You can also turn off automatic downloads to regain more space on your phone. WhatsApp has made this feature more private and secure. You can delete media by going to the chat window and then navigating to the ellipses menu in the top-right corner.
If you want to download a photo or video sent through WhatsApp, you can either do it manually or by selecting the Save as feature. When you save a file, you can choose a name and a destination. You can also import new pictures or videos to your phone using the Photos app. To do this, select the Photos icon from the Dock. Drag the photo from WhatsApp into the photos window.
WhatsApp has fixed a bug that caused users to lose the option to save media when their messages are disappearing. If you had the feature enabled, media files meant to self-destruct would be saved to your phone gallery instead. This was the result of a bug spotted by WABetaInfo. Android and iOS users will lose this feature when they turn on disappearing mode.
WhatsApp’s search icon
A new feature will allow WhatsApp users to search viral messages and fact-check misinformation. This will be made possible by adding a search icon next to messages that have been forwarded five or more times. Users will simply need to tap on the icon to access the online content of the message. This feature should help users discover common conspiracy theories and misinformation.
Another feature coming to WhatsApp in the near future will let you search for messages by date. This feature will be useful when you need to find a specific conversation but are unable to remember the date. By adding this feature, you can instantly find messages that were sent at a specific date, even if you don’t have the recipient’s phone number. The new feature is already being tested on the iOS version of the app and is scheduled to be rolled out to Android users in the near future.
In addition to the search feature, WhatsApp is working on a revamped Contact Info page. A similar interface to the default contact cards on iOS will be added. The Contact Info page will also allow users to change their status. The new Search shortcut button will also presumably let users search for shared content. Additionally, the new search feature is expected to include a feature that lets users search for nearby businesses.
WhatsApp’s “Last seen” feature lets your contacts see when you were last online
WhatsApp’s new “Last seen” feature lets your contacts know when you were last online, but you can change the visibility of the information to hide it from everyone or just a specific group. You can also choose to hide your profile photo and bio. This gives you more privacy control than ever before. The new feature is also coming soon to all smartphones.
You can enable or disable the “Last seen” feature by going to Settings on the WhatsApp app. On the top right-hand corner of the screen, tap the three-dot icon. Select Account, Privacy, and Last seen. If you want no one to see your last online status, select Nobody. Otherwise, choose Everyone.
WhatsApp is also beta-testing a new feature that allows you to hide the “Last seen” feature from your contacts. This feature allows your contacts to see when you were last online, but not who you’ve been talking to. In addition, it also lets you block certain groups of people.
This feature isn’t yet live for iOS, but it is in development. You can decide if you want to show your Last Seen status to some of your contacts or hide it from everyone, according to WABetaInfo. This way, you can make sure that you don’t lose any privacy when talking to others.
WhatsApp’s Airplane mode
Using WhatsApp in airplane mode will allow you to read messages without being recognized by others. This is useful for those times when you don’t have mobile coverage. Otherwise, your phone will continue to try to connect to the network, consuming more battery than usual. Airplane mode also reduces load times.
You can activate airplane mode by tapping the airplane symbol in the bottom right corner of the screen. However, you have to turn off your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections to get the feature to work. This will disable your cellular radio, which means that you will not be able to send text messages or voice calls.
Airplane mode is similar to turning your phone off. It allows you to use all installed applications, but it will disable the functions that require a wireless connection. This feature is useful for people who need to know where they are. However, if you want to keep your location secret, you’ll need to install an application to spoof your location.
Airplane mode will also prevent you from replying to a message. This means that when a friend or colleague messages you, the status of your message will not show up on their phone. If you’re traveling, airplane mode will allow you to save battery life while still being able to access your messages.
If you want to express your feelings in a creative way, WhatsApp’s Stickers 2023 app will do the trick. The app has more than a thousand stickers to choose from, and the design is incredibly user-friendly. You can choose from a variety of categories, such as animals, celebrities, TV shows, and more. The app also supports 6 different languages.
Stickers can be shared with friends and family. The Sticker Maker feature lets you design and share your own stickers. It also allows you to add emoji characters to your messages. In the next few weeks, the app will also be available for desktop users. This means that you can send stickers to your friends without having to learn a new language.
Another cool feature is the ability to turn photos and other images into stickers. These stickers can be used in messages on WhatsApp. The app allows you to use scissors, cropping tools, and arbitrary shapes to create unique stickers. If you want to add a thick outline to a sticker, you can simply draw a shape and the app will add a thick outline.
Muting WhatsApp notifications
Muting WhatsApp notifications is an easy way to avoid receiving notifications from groups or individual chats. However, this option is not very helpful when you are part of a group chat. This is because you will still receive notifications from this chat if you respond to a message or mention another member. There are ways to fix this problem, however.
First, you need to unmute the person you want to stop receiving notifications from. This way, you won’t be disturbed by their messages. You can also archive a chat to prevent receiving notifications from that person. This feature will help you prevent unwanted notifications from affecting your work. To do this, open the chat and hold down the name of the person you want to block. After this, tap the mute button. Once you have done this, you can untick the ‘Show notifications’ option.
After you have untick the box, WhatsApp will silence the notification so that you won’t be disturbed by the notification. You can mute a contact for up to eight hours, or permanently. When you mute someone, you will no longer hear the notification sound, vibrate, or see the unread message badge count. You can re-enable the notification again at any time.
