Whatsapp Features you didn’t know were There!

Used whatsapp for long hours?
Do you keep checking your Whatsapp  all the time and are scared that you have become addicted to it? We are here to help with!
Here are some interesting features of whatsapp that you didn’t know were there!

·        Schedule Messages for Whatsapp
Did you ever feel like pre-scheduling a message to be sent ?
Does it often happen that you want to drop a birthday message at midnight and are already feeling too sleepy?
You’ll need to download a third-party app for this – if you’re on Android you should check out Seebye Scheduler ROOT (free), iOS users should look to Message Scheduler for WhatsApp ($0.99 on Cydia). You’ll need either a rooted or jailbroken device.

·        Broadcast  Messages
Want to wish everyone at the same time without pinging everyone personally?
The feature is called Broadcast. To use it, click on Options > New Broadcast and enter the names of the people who you want to send your message to. You’ll be able to see who opened it and receive any responses privately and individually.

·        Create Conversation Shortcuts
Are you constantly using WhatsApp to message the same two or three people? Wife? Boyfriend? Dog?
If so, did you know you can streamline your experience by adding a conversation shortcut to your device’s home screen? Just open the app, click on the Chats tab, long press on the conversation you want to create a shortcut for, and select Add Chat Shortcut from the popup menu.

·        Hide Whatsapp Media from Gallery
 If you don’t want incoming media on WhatsApp to show up in the Gallery, hide them using this simple trick.
Open File Manager and browse to Internal storage WhatsApp > Media and Rename WhatsApp Images” and “WhatsApp Video” folders to “.WhatsApp Images” and “.WhatsApp Video” respectively (notice the dot in start).This trick is applicable only for Android, not for iOS platforms. 

Use More than one Whatsapp Account on the Same Phone
Most of the Android users use a dual-sim device, which in turn increases the urge to use two WhatsApp accounts using their two numbers – say one for official use and other for personal purpose.
With Android Lollipop allowing multiple users on the same device, one can now operate multiple WhatsApp accounts without any third-party app. Do note that he/she won’t receive notifications from both of the accounts at a single time.
To do this, go to Android’s Settings > Users > Add user. After you have created a new user, log in using the new account, install WhatsApp on this account and use it with the second number.

 Change the Background

Bored of the Whatsapp default background?

Follow Options > Settings > Chats > Wallpaper and you’ll be able to add your own picture from your library, remove the wallpaper altogether for a grey background, or reload the original WhatsApp offering.
