8 WhatsApp tips and tricks you definitely need to know

Most of us use WhatsApp pretty avidly and even that is an understatement. The Facebook-owned instant messenger is undoubtedly the most used messaging app but that feat isn’t making the company go lazy. WhatsApp has been adding new features every now and then, making sure that the competition doesn’t get a chance to play catch up. Addition of new features every now and then mean there are plenty of new hidden features and tricks waiting to be unlocked. We have already listed a number of great WhatsApp tricks previously but if you are one of those people who want to be updated on the latest WhatsApp tricks,
1. Use different font in messages

To change the font of a message, all you need to do is add three ` (grave accent) characters at the start and end of the sentence or word.
iPhone owners can find the grave accent character by press holding on apostrophe, while the Android keyboard features it in the second page of symbols. On Windows and macOS, you will find the character just below the Esc key.

2. Enjoy guilt free messaging

You can turn of your last seen by going to Settings > Account > Privacy > Last Seen, you can decide who, if anyone, you want to see when you’ve last been active. Finally, guilt-free ignoring is possible.
But as well as you can’t see last seen of other people. 
You can also disable Read receipts feature to hide whether you have read someone’s message or not but you will not be able to see whether others have read your message or not. 

3. Read WhatsApp Messages without the sender finding it out
• Turn on the flight mode on your phone.
• Read the WhatsApp message
• Now, turn on the flight mode again.
• No, blue ticks will appear and the sender will not know that you have read his/her WhatsApp message.

4. How to know When he or she read your message

Just go to the conversation chat window of WhatsApp and keep the message pressed for few seconds.
On the top there is an i symbol. Click on that. You will see when he or she read your message.

5. Reply your friends to let them know write or wrong

Want to reply a specific message (in group or personal)  just go to message you want to reply press for few second then hit the left arrow on Android or the ‘reply’ button on iOS to deliver your send your message.
6. Add Bold, italic, even strikethrough and many more type of font J


How? Well, sadly it’s not as easy as simply clicking the corresponding button. Instead, every time you want to put a bit of emphasis on a certain word, you’ll have to put the desired command shortcut around the words you want to stand out. To bold up, you need to but an asterisk on either side of the word, like *this*, while italics need an underscore on either side of a _word_, and strikethrough a tilde (those squiggly hyphens), just like ~this~. Feeling jazzy? You can even combine commands for *_bold italics_* & *~Message~* attention grabbing.
7. Send a message to all your friends at once (Broadcast).
If you want to send a message (want to send any information or want to wish more friends at once), you can use WhatsApp broadcast feature.
• For that you have to first create a broadcast list from your contacts.
• Once its ready, go to new broadcast and send message.
• It will be sent to all your friends.
• The only condition is that the person in your broadcast should also have your phone number saved on their phone.


8. Send blank messages 

 

All you need to do is add six ` (grave accent) and add a space between ` (Grave accent).
iPhone owners can find the grave accent character by press holding on apostrophe, while the Android keyboard features it in the second page of symbols. On Windows and macOS, you will find the character just below the Esc key.
