Sorry Android users, this one’s also just available on i OS. As long as you don’t speak in a Scottish accent, you can command Siri to type your Whats App messages out for you, leaving your hands free for less menial tasks.
With the sheer volume of messages sent via Whats App, it can be easy to lose track of important details, such as an address or special date.
Similarly, you can mark a conversation as unread when you know you need to reply to it, but perhaps don’t have the time to at the moment.
Android users can do this by long-pressing a conversation and tapping Mark as Unread in the menu, while i OS users can access the option by swiping from left to right on a chat.
The easiest method is by disabling read receipts altogether.
Simply go to Settings Read Receipts and uncheck the box.
On Android, hit More in your conversation’s menu, followed by Email Chat.
On i OS, tap the top bar above your conversation and select Email Chat.
Smartphones contain such deeply personal information that handing them over to a friend or family member can prove an ordeal.
As with emails, you can easily mark key messages with a star, allowing you to find them easily when you want to.
Simply tap and hold a message and hit the star icon to save it, and return to it later by selecting Starred Messages in Whats App’s main menu.
Further proof of Whats App being a maze of potential social pitfalls is the ability to hide your ‘last seen’ time.
Prevent your contacts from finding out when you were last online by navigating to Settings On that note, you can mute group chats whenever they get too lively for your liking.
