We know that most of you are already experienced WhatsApp users, but there are a couple of hidden features that even people who use the chatting app every single day don’t know about. Therefore, today we want to share with all WhatsApp users a couple of hidden tips and tricks that will help them use the app to its full potential. Without any further ado, let’s jump straight into it.
Hidden Tips and Tricks
#1 How to Hide Blue Texts
Don’t you hate the blue text feature in WhatsApp that shows everyone that you read their messages? This feature makes it difficult to ignore annoying people and luckily, there is a simple trick that will remove the blue texts. WhatsApp users need to follow the next steps in order to remove the blue texts: Settings – Account – Privacy – Read Receipts.
#2 How to Hide the Last Seen Status
Another annoying feature that was recently introduced to WhatsApp is the “last seen” status. This feature might be great when you are trying to get in touch with someone, but it will prove to be quite annoying because everyone else will know what is the last hour when you appeared online. This feature can be deactivated by following the next steps: Settings – Account – Privacy – Last Seen.
#3 How to Write in Bold
If you ever want to make your WhatsApp texts look more personal and to draw someone’s attention, then you might want to try to write them in bold. How does this work you ask? Well, the answer is quite simple. The only thing that WhatsApp users need to do in order to write in bold is to place asterisks (*) on either side of the word. This will automatically transform the text in bold and make it look better.
