Indispensable WhatsApp Tips

21. Archive

In WhatsApp, you can choose to archive a message. You get this option if you hold down a conversation in the overview. What is archiving anyway? This means that the message is not deleted, but is no longer explicitly present in the call list. By scrolling down you will see the option 'archived chats', where you can find the archived messages. This can be useful if you do not want to delete messages, but simply do not need them.

22. Shortcut

If you use WhatsApp over and over to chat with your friend, you can open the chat with this person in a much faster way. By holding down the desired conversation in the chat conversation list, you get the 'create shortcut for chat' option. With this, an icon appears on your home screen, so that you go directly to the chat with that person, instead of having to select that message in the WhatsApp overview.

23. Pop-up window

With notifications, you can set a pop-up to be displayed with a new message. You can respond directly from a pop-up window without having to open the application itself. With these settings, you can still choose to display the pop-up only when the screen is switched on, or only when the screen is switched off.

24. Widget

WhatsApp also has widgets, which gives you immediate insight into newly received messages. From the widget, you can immediately go to a conversation and read the rest of the conversation. To add a widget, go to an empty space on your home screen, hold your finger there for a few seconds, and then place the WhatsApp widget.

25. WhatsApp network usage statistics

If you are interested in how many messages you have already exchanged with your friends, you can view the global statistics in WhatsApp. At settings, you go to 'data usage' and then to network usage. Here you can see exactly how many messages you have sent, how many you have received and the same applies to the media and WhatsApp calls. Note that if you have changed your telephone, the counter will be reset to zero. You can also reset the statistics yourself.


26. Send WhatsApp Edit Image

If you want to share a photo with someone, you can edit it before you send it. After selecting the photo you can crop it and rotate it. You can also add a caption so that you can immediately explain the photo. In addition, you can send multiple photos at the same time (up to ten) if you press the 'plus sign'. For some time we have also been able to provide photos and videos for sending with stickers, emoji, text and a drawing. For this, you will find the relevant tools at the top of the screen.

27. Sharing a contact

Quickly give someone else's phone number? If you tap on the paper clip in the conversation, you will have the option to send multiple things. One of these options is to send a contact. You get an overview with contacts and before you click on 'send' you can choose which data has to be sent. For example, if you only want to send the telephone number but not the e-mail address of that person, you can uncheck this.

28. Sharing your location

Sharing your location is easy from WhatsApp. You tap on the paper clip after which you can choose 'location'. Based on what you have set to request your location (for example, mobile networks, GPS only or both) you get an overview of places. You can send the current location here, but you can also choose to send a 'known' place nearby so that there is a landmark. For example, you can choose the bakery, hairdresser, a school or other places. The location database of Foursquare is used for these locations.

29. Calling and video calling with WhatsApp

The calling function in WhatsApp was added to the chat app at the beginning of this year. When opening a conversation with someone you can start a telephone conversation by pressing the telephone receiver. You can also start a conversation from the 'calls' tab. During a call, you can also choose to activate the speakerphone mode, ideal for hands-free calling. You can also send a message and mute the microphone. Instead of calling, you can also make video calls via WhatsApp. For this, you will see the option to make video calls when choosing the call icon.

30. Save data with call function

If you do not have such a large data bundle, you can activate the special data saving function. At settings you can choose 'data usage' and below you will find the option 'Limited data usage'. With this, you can just have a normal telephone conversation but save data in the meantime. DroidApp discovered this feature in July and you can find our findings in the article on data saving.
