Upgrade Whatsup

How to upgrade

How to upgrade whether we like it or not. Most of our environment uses WhatsApp as a regular messaging application. Many people are comfortable in WhatsApp and do not seem willing to switch platforms. That is why, we want you to enjoy all the improvements that WhatsApp can offer you in order to make your experience better.

Use the Status

Use this tool wisely, it can be quite useful. Posting that we are at the movies, a barbecue or a family meal can be the most comfortable way to tell all your contacts that you will not be watching the phone for a while and that they should wait until you can respond.

The new status, in this sense, are more useful, more visible and easier to handle than what is now known as Information – the typical phrase that was formerly known as Status. customize notifications

This feature is relatively little known, but can become a great ally in times when your list of conversations is congested. This function allows you to set the notification parameters individually for each conversation or group.

If you are interested in highlighting a conversation, you can use a different notification tone. This way you will know that there is activity in that chat and not another without having to unblock the terminal. If you want to activate them, go to the information of the group or individual conversation. You will find the option just below the profile photo.

Highlight important messages

One of the functions that WhatsApp included does relatively little is to mark some messages as important. If you have to remember a specific phone number, address or data, this tool will not let you get lost in a sea of messages.

To mark it as a highlight, hold down the message, and click on the star appearing at the top. To access them again, click on the menu of the 3 buttons on the main screen and then on Featured Messages. Use them without fear. No one gets any notification.

Control the data

Using WhatsApp – and any application – every day generates a large amount of data. With the photographs, videos, archived chats, documents, etc., that are progressively stored in our terminal. To avoid any unnecessary download, it is convenient to access the Settings menu and set what we want to download automatically and which we prefer to download manually.

Likewise, this can save us some megabytes of our internet rate if, for example, we deactivate the automatic videos and photos download while we do not have a Wi-Fi connection.

Keep your conversations safe

Another requirement for a full WhatsApp experience is to keep our conversations safe from intruders. To do this, use end-to-end encryption and tell the application to show you the security notifications (Settings > Account > Security > Show security notifications). Check your settings because you may not have them activated.

This is the best option you have to improve your experience using WhatsApp than any other around the world. Even though there are other applications, people still trust in this tool.
