Best WhatsApp Tricks And Tips You Must Know
WhatsApp is a widely used messaging app with many hidden features and tricks that can enhance your messaging experience. Here are some WhatsApp tricks and tips you should know.
Read Messages Without Blue Ticks
Reading a WhatsApp message without the other person knowing can be done by disabling read receipts (the blue checkmarks) and using certain methods, but it’s important to note that these methods may not always work, and they might also compromise your privacy or the trust of the person you’re communicating with. Here are a couple of ways to read messages without triggering read receipts:
Airplane Mode Method:
- When you receive a message, put your phone in Airplane Mode before opening the WhatsApp message.
- Open the chat and read the message.
- Close WhatsApp completely (force stop the app on Android or swipe it away in the app switcher on iOS).
- Turn off Airplane Mode.
This method works because WhatsApp won’t be able to send read receipts while your phone is in Airplane Mode. However, it’s not foolproof, as the other person might see that you were online when you read their message once you go back online.
Use Widget or Notifications:
- On some Android devices, you can read WhatsApp messages from the notification bar or the WhatsApp widget without opening the app. Swipe down on the notification shade to see the message content.
- On iOS, you can use the “3D Touch” feature (if your device supports it) to preview the message from the home screen without opening WhatsApp.
Some third-party apps claim to allow you to read messages without triggering read receipts. These apps often require you to grant them access to your notifications. Be cautious when using such apps, as they may compromise your privacy and security.
Please note that WhatsApp is designed with privacy and transparency in mind, and these methods may not always work reliably. Moreover, deliberately trying to read messages without letting the other person know can be considered as breaching trust and privacy, so use these methods with caution and consideration for the other person’s feelings. WhatsApp’s read receipts feature is there to provide transparency and accountability in communication.
