Create GIF Images on Whatsapp:
We all know that we can send GIF images in our WhatsApp conversations.
But, do you know that WhatsApp allows you to create a GIF image within the app. The only way to create GIFs here is to cut videos. You can send it to any contacts and can store them on the phone. So, here is the real way to do it.
Go to the chat where you want to send a GIF, be it a group or private conversation.
Tap on the “Attach” icon. Pick Gallery and look for the video that you want to make GIF from. Select the video.
Now, you will see the video editing screen. WhatsApp supports length only up to 6 seconds for Video to GIF. So, adjust to the particular 6 seconds for GIF. When you set the 6 seconds length, a GIF option will appear. Tap on it.
The GIF is ready now. Send it and enjoy it!
Hide your profile picture:
Don’t want to show your WhatsApp DP (profile picture) to everyone? Then, yes, you can do it.
Suppose, you are added to some groups. There are some unknown people out there, and you don’t want to show your profile pic to them.
Then, go to WhatsApp Settings > Account Privacy > Profile Photo.
Choose whether you want to show to everyone, no one, or only the contacts. That’s it.
Schedule Messages on Whatsapp:
Have you ever thought of scheduling WhatsApp messages before reading through this article? Probably, the answer is NO.
Even my answer could have been NO if I hadn’t used the WhatsApp Plus from GB Mods.
Yes, you need to download WhatsApp Plus APK and install it.
Open > Enter a mobile number > Verify it by OTP.
Then, go to Menu. There, you can see an option, i.e., “Schedule Messages.”
On the next screen, tap on the Menu icon > Schedule. Now, a screen will be there, like in the image below.
Choose the contact, type the message, date, time, and how many times. Then, tap on “Schedule.” That’s it.
Hide Blue Ticks on Whatsapp:
The cool-looking blue ticks sometimes put us in trouble. Occasionally, we miss to reply to someone even after reading them either knowingly or being busy or mistakenly.
GFs and BFs, especially :p need to hide those ticks. As many times a little delay in replying messages after seeing them causes BIG troubles. They know that we have read their messages but not responded. That’s why you need to hide those Blue Ticks. Here are the steps to do it.
Open WhatsApp > Account > Privacy > Untick Read Receipts.
That’s it. Now, no one will see those blue ticks in conversation with you.
NOTE: If you disable that option, you will also won’t able to see blue ticks of others.
Get shortcuts to specific conversations:
There may be some 3-4 people or say one that you chat all the time on WhatsApp. I think I have someone or two or more. So, to make access to the chat more faster, you can get the shortcuts to the home screen.
To do that on Android, go to Chats > Tap and Hold an Individual Chat > Menu > Add Chat Shortcut.

Run Multiple WhatsApp Accounts in One Device:
These days, we all use Dual SIM smartphones. Many of us want to use WhatsApp with both their numbers. So, they need to have two WhatsApp accounts. But, it usually is not possible to install the WhatsApp app two times on a smartphone. So, here we bring the possible ways to run multiple WhatsApp accounts on a single phone.
(A) Install Parallel Space App (for All Smartphones)
- Get the latest Parallel Space app from Google Play Store from this link.
- Install and open the app > Tap on the “+” icon.
- From the list of apps, select WhatsApp and Proceed.
- Instantly, it will create a WhatsApp Clone.
- Now, you need to open the clone WhatsApp and register with a new Mobile number.
This method works on All the smartphones out there.
(B) Dual Apps (for Xiaomi users)
- Go to Mobile Settings > Find and tap on Dual Apps.
- Find WhatsApp and enable the dual app for WhatsApp.
- A clone of WhatsApp is ready instantly.
- Open it and register with the second mobile number.
- That’s it! Enjoy running Dual WhatsApp on your Xiaomi mobile.
Tag Friends in Group Chats:
Tagging or mentioning a person is super easy on WhatsApp.
If you’re sending a message in Group and that word is for a particular person(s), then you need to tag them to specify. Yes, tagging or mentioning will determine that this message is for them.
To do that, you need to be in the Group Chat and start typing “@.” Now, WhatsApp will show all the list of the members. Start typing some letters of the person you want to tag and tap on him/here. Here is a screenshot of that.
So, it is as simple as that.
Message Someone Even Who Blocked You:
Sending someone a message which has already blocked you is not an official feature. This is a trick, or you can call it one of those WhatsApp Hacks!
When someone blocks you on WhatsApp, you neither can see his/her DP nor send a message to them.
But here is the solution. We have to engage a third person in this matter.
The key here that the third person needs to create a group (you can try your another WhatsApp number or any friend. The Group should be consists of the three people, i.e., 3rd person, YOU, and the person who blocked you.
Now, the 3rd person needs to EXIT the Group leaving only YOU and the one who blocked you. That may sound funny, but it works.
You TWO can talk there as there is no one else. So, go and try it.
Enable Two-Step Verification on WhatsApp:
As we make most of the conversations over WhatsApp, it is essential to set the extra security level for the data.
You can try adding App Lock to do that. But, WhatsApp officially has an option called “Two-step verification.”
Stealing data and keep track of your WhatsApp activities can be done by logging into the account on another device. But, if you will enable the Two-step verification, then you can do save from such privacy leaks. Because, when someone does log in, not only will they have to enter OTP but also the Six-digit code you set. So, follow these steps below to enable that option.
- First, go to WhatsApp Settings > Tap on Account.
- Then, tap on “Two-step verification”> Proceed by tapping on “ENABLE.”
- Now, enter a 6-digit PIN, re-enter PIN, and give an email address (for backup of the PIN).
That’s it. You have successfully added extra security for your WhatsApp account by enabling two-step verification.
Enable Dark Mode on Whatsapp: (Officially)
Whatsapp finally released Dark Mode for its users. And it does not need you to root your device or use any other modded version of Whatsapp. You can enable dark mode by downloading the Whatsapp Beta Apk. Try it out today.
Pin Someone’s Chat on Top:
If you have a lot of contacts on your WhatsApp, it might become a tedious task for you to scroll down someone’s name every time. Luckily, WhatsApp lets you pin up to three essential contacts on top so that you can access their chats quickly.
To pin a contact, swipe right on a conversation and tap on the pin icon on your iPhone, or hold a chat and tap on the pin button on your Android device.
Read Texts Without Activating Blue Tick:
Ever been in a situation where you wanted to read someone’s text but don’t want them to know. Well, here’s a nasty trick you can do. Put your phone on Airplane mode and open WhatsApp to read that text. After reading, close the app, and remove WhatsApp from recent apps. You can now turn off the Airplane mode. The other person will only receive the blue tick after you open WhatsApp the next time.
Star Whatsapp Messages:
If someone has sent you a noteworthy message, you can indeed make notes out of it by starring it for later use. Open the specific message you want to star and click on the star option. Now you can go the contact’s page and click on ‘starred messages’ to access them.
Send a message to multiple people without forwarding:
Due to many recent incidents, WhatsApp has put a limit on the number of times a particular message can be forwarded. But if you want to send something to many people, you can use the Broadcast message feature. Tap on ‘Broadcast Lists‘ and tap on ‘New List‘ on your iPhone, or you can tap on the three vertical dots at the top right and add contacts to the list on your Android device. If you send a message to people on this list, they will receive it individually, just like personal messages.
Delete Sent Messages on Whatsapp:
If you have ever sent a message to someone accidentally, you can delete it before they read. To do this, go to the chat, select the message you want to delete and tap on ‘Delete for Everyone.’ This will create a prompt saying, ‘This message has been deleted‘ for both you and the receiver.
