Now that you know how to send a blank message on Whatsapp, here are some fantastic tricks for every WhatsApp user. 

How to make words Bold, Italics, or Strikethrough on Whatsapp?

Most of us do not consider WhatsApp as a strong word editor. But little do we know that this popular phone application comes with advanced formatting features. 

On WhatsApp, you can add formatting options such as bold, italic, & strikethrough. If you want to bold a text, use the string (*bold*) after your message. It works on all Unicode characters. 

For adding underscore, add the text (_italics_), and for adding strikethrough add the text (~strikethrough~). You can use these on your WhatsApp status as well. It is a rare trick. 

If this does not work on your phone, make sure you are using the latest version of WhatsApp. You can download and install the latest updates from Google Play Store. 

 How to enable disappearing messages on WhatsApp?

Almost all major social media platforms (Facebook Messenger, Instagram) have a disappearing messages option.

The following unique feature on WhatsApp is disappearing messages. 

WhatsApp has just recently launched this feature. From the top screen of your friends’ cathead, select “Disappearing Messages” to turn on this feature. This option is available for both group chats section and individual WhatsApp chats. It is a great trick. 

When you enable the Disappearing Messages option, your messages and shared media will disappear after seven days. 

How to find who is your best friend on Whatsapp?

Facebook shows you your best friend on the platform, depending on how you interact with them. The same is true for other social media platforms like Instagram and Snap Chat. 

To know your best friend on WhatsApp, follow the below steps. 

Before proceeding, first, download the latest version of WhatsApp. 

From your Android mobile phone, navigate to Settings > Storage and Data > Manage Storage on iPhone mobile.

On this list, you will see a list of people you communicate with on the platform. It will show you who uses the most storage on your phone in texts and shared media files.  

To see when a message was sent on WhatsApp, swipe left on that text. If you are an Android user, long-press & hold on to the users’ profile, and select the option below Info. This feature is also available on the WhatsApp web. 

How to mute WhatsApp chats for individual contacts?

We all are added to a WhatsApp group that never stops sending messages. If you are added to such a WhatsApp group, you can mute it. If you do not want to be disturbed during office hours, you can mute WhatsApp chats individually. 

From your iPhone, swipe left on a conversation. It will show you a three-dot menu option. You will see the Mute option in red right at its right side. It is no longer a hidden function. 

Just like Facebook Messenger, when you read a text on WhatsApp, the sender sees a pair of blue ticks beside the message. However, we don’t want the sender to know that we have read their text at times.  

But you can turn it off. For this, you will need to disable the Read Receipts option. Open WhatsApp, and navigate to Settings -> Account -> Privacy. 

After you are done with following the above steps, scroll down until you see the option Read Receipts and toggle off the message box.
