How to expand the functionality of the messenger and make it more convenient to use

Most people use Telegram, WhatsApp, and Viber with default settings and are not even aware of what features regular programs have.

WhatsApp can save mobile Internet traffic. Disable the autoloading of files through the settings of the cellular network. Media will come but will have to confirm the download.

Calls can be more economical and more stable. Often calls to WhatsApp via the mobile Internet are unstable. The inclusion of “Data Saving” in “Call Settings” will help.

Important chats can be brought to the desktop smartphone. Go to the correspondence with the desired contact, click on the “More” menu and select “Add icon to the screen.”

Correspondence in WhatsApp can be protected from prying eyes with a password. Only with the help of a third-party application called Messenger and Chat Lock.

– Two numbers on one gadget

If a smartphone with two SIM cards, you can link a WhatsApp account to each of them. To do this, install the free application WhatsApp Business. It is the official messenger client with enterprise functions. Thanks to it, you can use two different phone numbers on the same device. An entrepreneur can add an address, email, website, and a detailed description of the activity to a business profile.

In individual cases, you will have one contact list. However, when you text someone, you can choose which account it will be sent from. WhatsApp Business is currently available only on Android. Soon they will do it for iOS.

The business application shows statistics on the number of sent and read messages. You can set up automatic replies.

– Answering machine

You can add your blank responses that will be triggered by any incoming messages. You can also customize the response to particular messages, for example, “How are you?”

It is possible to choose on whom the answering machine will work: on all people from the contact list, only on some or on each.

– Hide photo-video in chat rooms

In the web version of WhatsApp, all received photos and videos are downloaded automatically. Someone may pass by and see on the computer screen what is not intended for his eyes. To solve this problem, you need to install the Hide Media extension.

The plugin blurs media files in the browser version of the messenger.

– Read message previews

The toolkit is a useful extension for the WhatsApp web version.

First, the plugin can stretch messages to the width of the entire display. It allows you to optimize the space on the screen. To enable the feature, tick the Wide text bubbles checkbox in the settings.

Secondly, the number of unread incoming messages is displayed on the toolkit icon.

Since correspondence is very personal, your privacy and security are paramount. Your messages and calls are protected automatically by end-to-end encryption, so no one, including WhatsApp, can read or listen to them.

The audience of the popular WhatsApp messenger has already exceeded 1 billion active users from all over the world. Every day hundreds of millions of messages are sent via WhatsApp.

And there is an unobvious, but very relevant opportunity in the messenger to format messages using several writing styles.

You will not find any unique settings to enable formatting. When entering text, use special characters.
