WhatsApp Tips you must know

How to make italic, bold, or strikethrough text in WhatsApp

I have been using this feature for a long time in WhatsApp, and I know that most people do not know about it.

If you want to make a word bold, just put an asterisk (*) at the beginning and end of the word. For example, if you want to make a word bold in bold, write * bold *. The same with italics , but instead of asterisks, we put an underscore (_). To get itcrossed outtext you need to put a tilde sign (~) at the beginning and end of the required fragment. There is also the ability to create a monospaced text, add three quotes to either side of the text.

Is it too difficult for you? Then just highlight the desired word or text, press “more” and choose bold, italic, strikethrough or monospace. I want to warn you that this is not available on all devices, so it is better to use the first method.

How to quote a message on WhatsApp

If the group is active and new messages are constantly coming in, quoting is the best way not to get confused about who is responding to whom and what.

To quote someone, you need to click on the message for a few seconds, and then select the arrow pointing to the left (this is the first arrow). Thus, the quoted message is attached, it remains only to type the answer and send.

How to disable automatic upload of photos and videos in WhatsApp

One of the most WhatsApp tricks you should definitely know will help you save mobile internet traffic.

There are several ways to save WhatsApp internet traffic while still receiving notifications and messages. First, disable the app’s ability to download media over the mobile network. This can be done in the settings for this, click on the three dots in the upper right corner, then ” Settings ” – ” Data and storage ” – ” Media autoload – Mobile network “.

In this section, you need to uncheck the media content that does not need to be downloaded using the mobile Internet. After that, in order to view the sent photo or video in the chat, you just need to click on the file, and the download will begin. I especially recommend disabling videos, as they are heavy and consume traffic the most.

Are WhatsApp calls eating up traffic? Turn on data savings

Calls to WhatsApp are very convenient, after starting them I gave up Skype. But they can use a lot of traffic, especially for users with a limited tariff plan. Fortunately, WhatsApp also has the ability to lower the bandwidth for calls, thereby saving traffic. To enable the data saving function, go to ” *** ” – ” Settings ” – ” Data and storage ” – ” Call settings ” and check the box next to ” Data saving”. 

We look at the statistics of the used traffic in WhatsApp

All Android phones released in the last five years have statistics on traffic usage, Google has even released applications to save traffic . WhatsApp also has statistics on traffic consumption, statistics are conveniently broken down into categories.

To get into the WhatsApp traffic usage log, you need to go to ” Settings ” – ” Data and storage ” – ” Data usage “. Here you can see all the statistics of the application, such as how much internet traffic was spent on calls, messages, the number of messages sent, etc. The biggest flaw in these statistics is that there is no breakdown of the traffic used by Wi-Fi and cellular.

How to see how much memory a chat took

If you go to ” Settings ” – ” Storage data ” – ” Storage “, you will see impressive statistics.

In this section, you can see how much space is occupied by a chat with a contact or group. After you select a contact or group, you can see detailed statistics, such as how much space is taken by photos, videos, audio, documents, the number of text messages. You can also delete certain media content right there.
