5 Whatsapp Tricks Everyone Should Know

Undoubtedly WhatsApp is the top messaging platform today. It has more than a billion users who are actively sending messages and communicating over voice around the globe.

The company was acquired by Facebook, and the messaging app is completely free to use. WhatsApp developers had initially released the phone number-based messaging app for simple communication; however, it took to the internet like a storm.

Though users could say that other apps were already ahead of WhatsApp, a slow implementation works well in WhatsApp’s favour.

If you have been using whatsapp for quiet long then there are some tricks that users could use with WhatsApp to become a WhatsApp jockey.

1. Send a single message to multiple people

Broadcasting a single message to multiple people at once is possible. Simply click on the menu (three dot ellipse) and select ‘New broadcast’. You will get an option to send the same message to multiple people by adding the contacts in the recipient list. Click on the ‘+’ sign on the right and select the names from your contact list.

2. Format your text

You can now send messages in bolditalics or strikethrough too. Simply use the special characters before and after the words to get the formatting of your choice. For example, use asterisk for bold (*hello*), underscore for italics (_hello_) and tilde for strikethrough (~hello~).
