8 WhatsApp Secret Features, Here's How to Use It

 The popular messaging application WhatsApp is currently used by billions of users around the world. Not only as a medium for exchanging messages, but also a lot that can be done from group video calls, sending stickers, status updates, sending voice messages, and much more.

But did you know that from the many features that WhatsApp has, there are also secrets that many people may not have realized -- including you?

We have compiled from several sources, here are a series of secret features and how to activate them:

1. Delete messages automatically

By activating the 'Disappearing Messages' feature, all conversation messages will disappear from the chat room after seven days. This feature will also free up phone memory and make it easier for users to delete old messages.

To do this, go to the WhatsApp application > open the chat that is intended for personal or group > tap the name of the contact or group at the top > then activate the 'Disappearing Messages' option

2. Pinning the top contact

On WhatsApp, of course, we have a lot of conversations either personally or in groups. So, sometimes important contacts sink to the bottom. For example, important contacts from family, parents or partners who often chat.

Thus, so that the contact remains on top and continues to be visible, there is a pin feature so that conversations with this contact will be permanently placed at the top.

To do this, go to WhatsApp > long press the desired contact > then pin at the top select the pin image.

3. Bookmark important messages

Many chats on WhatsApp are considered important such as family matters, work, school and others. So, so as not to forget the user can mark the message. So if you need it, it's easy to find.

To do this, open the WhatsApp application > enter the chat in question > long press one of the important messages > then tap 'Star' or the star icon.

4. Custom Notifications

Instead of having the same notification sound for every incoming message, you can set a custom notification for each contact. This is so you can know who is contacting you.

Android users just do this. First of all, tap on the Menu icon while viewing a chat thread. Next select View Contact > Custom Notification, check the box and then complete the settings.

For those using WhatsApp on iPhone, tap on the contact's name while viewing the chat thread, then select Custom Tone.

5. See who you chat with the most

Want to know who the people you talk to the most on WhatsApp are?

To do this, open the WhatsApp application > tap the three dots at the top right corner then select settings > select Data & Storage (storage and data) > open Manage storage (manage storage)

After that, a list of the contacts who have messaged you most frequently on WhatsApp will appear. You can also tap on each contact to see more details.

6. Turn off auto download media, save storage

Usually in groups there are those who often send photos and videos, so to save your cellular data and also not to fill up your phone's storage memory, you have to disable the automatic storage feature.

To do this, enter the WhatsApp application > settings > select data and storage usage, select media auto-download (Settings - Data usage & storage Automatically download media).

In when using mobile data (When connected to Cellular Data) uncheck all media, as well as in the menu when connected on Wi-Fi (When connected to Wi-Fi).

7. Export conversations

You can export conversations if you really need to save them. While viewing a conversation, Android users need to tap the Menu button followed by More > Export Chat.

On iPhone, the process is similar to viewing a chat thread, tapping the contact's name at the top of the screen, then scrolling to the bottom of the Contact Info page and selecting Export Chat.

8. Delete files quickly

Sending photos and videos on WhatsApp will make the phone's internal memory full and can make the phone slow.

While deleting them one by one from each chat would be too much of a hassle. Quoting Pocket-lint, you can delete it quickly through one of the rarely known features of WhatsApp.

To do this, enter the WhatsApp application > settings > select storage and data > manage storage > Under the 'Review and Delete' section, you can tap the 'Larger Than 5 MB' or 'Forwarded Many Times' tab > after that Select the files to be deleted, then delete.
