5 Cool Tricks of WhatsApp that every user needs to know
WHATSAPP is the world’s most popular messaging app and here’s five hidden features you may never have known existed.

WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging app in India, with 400 million active users. The facebook-owned firm keeps adding new features regularly to make the platform more attractive and convenient. While peer-to-peer messaging is still a key feature, users can post status updates, share stickers, and even make group video calls.

If you are a regular WhatsApp user, then here are some cool tricks you should try out.

Download WhatsApp Status

Like Instagram Stories, WhatsApp lets users post video status. But do you know that you can also download status updates, including photos and videos of your friends from the status feed?

One of the easiest ways is to download and install a third-party application called Status Downloader. This free-to-download app on the Play Store allows you to download images and share videos. The app automatically scans status photos you have seen on your phone and will enable you to download and post it again.

Another way is downloading a files app. You can also download the ES File Explorer application while it works with Google files. Simply tap on any position and make a complete picture to load. Now open the Files app and go to WhatsApp – Select the media – Position You need to enable ‘show hidden files’ in the application.

Who is making your storage full?

Which contact or group sends you the most pictures and videos? To find out, open WhatsApp on your smartphone. Go to Settings [Open Data and Use Storage] Storage Usage You will see a list of contacts, including those groups that are consuming your storage. The list is set according to the chronological volume (MB or GB).

Optimize WhatsApp data

Less on data? In such a situation, WhatsApp offers many features to optimize the platform. First, you can disable the media auto-download. Go to Settings – Open data and storage usage – Choose between options like media auto-downloading when using mobile data or connecting over Wi-Fi. When you make WhatsApp calls, you can also enable less data usage. Convenience is available on this window as well.

Listen voice messages discreetly

Do not have around headphones to check the voice message you’ve just received? Well, tap the play button on the voice message and hold the phone as you would like to make a call. Using the speaker to run WhatsApp messages automatically turns off, and instead, it runs through the phone’s earpiece.

Format texts

You can also customize the WhatsApp text formatting. While there are a bunch of third-party apps that change the font color and style, you can also use some of the basic commands to format. To send a message in bold, type example. For italics, try example. For strikethrough text, type ~example~.
