You probably use WhatsApp every day – but there are some clever tricks you may have missed.
A popular TikTok video has revealed some of the best.
If you’re a regular WhatsApp user, it’s worth knowing these tricks.
They were shared by TikTok creator @tricksin1, in a video that has more than 7,000 likes.
The first trick is saving messages as favorites.
Simply open WhatsApp and then go to a chat.
If you hold your finger down on a specific message, you’ll get the option to Star it.
Then go into your Settings and look for Starred Messages.
That’s where all of your favorite messages will be stored.
It’s an easy way to keep track of important messages – maybe an address, travel directions or even a clever WhatsApp trick.
The other tip shared in the video is pinning chats.
This is an easy way to prioritize your favorite people in WhatsApp.
If you have a busy WhatsApp, sometimes loves one can get buried below groups and work chats.
But it’s actually possible to pin several chats so that they stay at the top of your main conversation feed.
Go into your chat list and then swipe right on a conversation.
You can then tap Pin and that specific chat will stick to the top of the feed.
And if you change your mind later on, you can unpin at any time.
Other WhatsApp tricks
Bolding text is a great way to emphasize a word or phrase: bold.
It can also make a message stand out, which can be handy in group chats.
All you need to do is place an asterisk either side of the word or phrase you’re trying to embolden, like so: *text goes here*
Similarly, it’s also possible to make WhatsApp message italics, which is great for emphasis: italics.
It works in exactly the same was as the bold trick, but using different symbols.
You need to place an underscore on either side of the word or phrase you’re trying to edit, like this: _text goes here_
The strikethrough features draws a line all the way through your text:
It’s usually used to signify that something is wrong, or should be ignored.
To get a strikethrough, place a tilde (that’s that squiggly line symbol) either side of your message, like this: ~text goes here~
