1-"Ultra Stealth Mode"

There are a few simple techniques that can be used to hide the fact that you have seen someone else's message from the sender. One such easy technique is to press and hold the message as it appears on the iPhone screen when it is locked. You can read the entire text without having to open the message in the app by using this to bring up a preview of it.

2- Restore your conversations

Users may want to get their chats back in case they were deleted by mistake and possibly lost forever. Conversations can be sent from WhatsApp directly to an email address using a function.

You can do this by selecting Options > More, then Email Chat, after opening the chat you wish to save. You can send messages with or without media files up to 40,000 times per second.

3- Submit your location

Through the app, you may share your precise location with friends and allow them to follow your phone's progress. For instance, if you are running late for a meeting or appointment, this may be helpful.

Three tracking time periods are available to users: 15 minutes, an hour, or eight hours. The system you are using will determine how to achieve this.

On iOS: Tap a chat, tap the + button at the bottom left, tap Location followed by Share Live Location, and select the duration.

Additionally, on Android, click the conversation, then the paperclip icon to the right, then "Location" and "Share live location," then choose the time frame.

4- Send a photo or video that will disappear

  • Similar to how Snapchat operates, it is possible to send a photo or video that vanishes after only one viewing.

  • Although you should be mindful that the recipient can still snap a screenshot, this can be helpful if you wish to convey sensitive or secret information.

  • To turn this feature on in iOS: Open the conversation, tap the + icon, select the photo or video, tap the "1" to the right of the blue send arrow, then send.

  • On Android: Open the conversation, tap the paperclip icon, select a photo or video, tap the "1" next to the blue send arrow, and send.

5- Record voice messages without using hands

Many people might not be aware that voice messages can be recorded hands-free, even if most people are aware that you can send voice messages to your contacts using the app. To do this, hold down the microphone symbol while swiping up to expose the "lock" which will enable you to record without tapping any other buttons.

Hold the microphone in your hand. Hit send once the message is finished.

6- Pin key friends and group chats

  • WhatsApp features a function that may be quite helpful for people who frequently ignore messages or respond slowly. Users have the option of pinning specific discussions to the app's home screen, ensuring that they are the first to see new and unread messages. To make the feature active:

  • Swipe from left to right on an iOS device then hit Pin Chat.

  • Long-press a chat on an Android device, then tap the pin at the top of the screen.

7- Request Face ID or Touch ID to open the app

Despite the fact that this function is presently only accessible to iOS users, it gives an additional layer of security for those who prefer to keep their messages private. Even on a phone that has already been unlocked, the functionality will require Face ID or Touch ID to access texts once it has been activated.
