WhatsApp messenger is without any doubt one of the most used applications on mobile devices that run on Android or iOS. Using this application you can keep in touch with your friends by using only the internet connection. With other words, you will not have to pay any extra-fees for sending photos, videos or messages on WhatsApp, even if the person you’re talking to is from another country. Today we’re going to reveal you the best tips and tricks for WhatsApp.
Changing the mobile number (ID) of your WhatsApp account
To change the mobile number of your WhatsApp account is quite easy. You just need to go to WhatsApp’s Settings->Account->Change Number. After that, just confirm the old phone number and the new one and you are good to go.
Locking your WhatsApp
As you already know, WhatsApp doesn’t come with a user and password and if you have WhatsApp installed on your device, everyone who gets their hands on your device for a few second will be able to open the WhatsApp application without having to enter any kind of password. In case you usually share your device with friends that want to play some games on it, you should lock your WhatsApp application. To lock WhatsApp you just need to install WhatsApp Lock and set a password for it. After that you will have to enter the password each time you try to open WhatsApp.
Attaching and sending .apk, .zip, .pdf files via WhatsApp
On WhatsApp you are allowed to send only video and photos files. However, you can even send files such as .apk, .zip, .doc, .pdf, .exe files by using a simple application called Whats Packed 2ads. After you install that application, you will be able to send all kind of files on WhatsApp.
Multiple WhatsApp accounts on your Android device
As you know, you are able to use only a single WhatsApp account at a time on your device. However, by using an application such as SwitchMe you will be able to create different profiles, likewise on Windows. This way, each profile will have different applications and you will be able to have two or more WhatsApp account on a single device. However, keep in mind that in order to have multiple accounts you will also need multiple phone numbers in order to activate the other accounts.
Extending WhatsApp Trial Period
WhatsApp is free for the first year of use, but after that you will need to pay 0.99 dollars per year. However, you can extend the trial period by deleting your WhatsApp account when the trial period is about to end. After that create your account back and you will notice that your free trial has been extended. Keep in mind that this trick works only one single time.
Recovering WhatsApp conversations
In case you’ve deleted a WhatsApp message by mistake, you can recover it by uninstalling the application and installing it back. When the application will detect the backup file it will ask you if you want to recover the messages. After that, you will see that the message you’ve recently deleted is it back on your WhatsApp conversation.
Installing WhatsApp on your computer
To install WhatsApp on your computer is quite easy as you will just need an Android emulator. Download and install BlueStacks (the Android emulator) and after that, open it and search for the WhatsApp application. Install the WhatsApp application and use the “call me” verification to get the verification code via your mobile phone number. After that, use the code in order to activate WhatsApp on your computer.
Disable the auto-download option for videos and images
By default, your device will automatically download the media files you receive on WhatsApp. In case your carrier data plan doesn’t allow you to have a big amount of MB traffic, we suggest you to turn this off by going to WhatsApp Settings->Chat Settings->Media Auto Download and change the settings according to how you think it’s better for you.
Creating Fake conversations on WhatsApp
Do you want to trick your friends that you’ve talked to an important person? In order to create fake conversations, you will have to use the WhatSaid application. You will be able to add a name and a profile picture and edit the entire conversation.
Sending large video files on WhatsApp
On WhatsApp you can’t send video files if they are larger then 16MB. However, for a video file, 16MB is not that much, but we can do a trick that will allow you to send large video files on WhatsApp. To do this, you will use a video converter which will compress the video, in a way that it will make it have less than 16MB. To do this, you will use the Video WhatsApp converter, but keep in mind that the video quality might have to suffer.
