Very good point, Dan! Thank you for sharing your perspective on this. The only thing I had to go to individual websites to find, was the availability of device specific apps. I voted for Telegram, It will be nice to see if they perform as expressed. Ah, the romance of modern living. Think the double-blue ticks are the worst thing to happen to relationships since Tinder?
Here's another way you could annoy your loved ones. In addition to finding out the exact time your messages are delivered, you can also choose to see the exact time your message was read assuming you choose to stick with the ticks. For iOS users, you can also drag towards the left to reveal a window which will show the time your message was delivered and subsequently read. It works for group messages too, with the window listing the time each participant read the message.
All people who have built their much-vaunted careers on an air of mystique and otherness. So, as the saying goes, always be yourself unless you can be like Batman. People tend to get overzealous in chats, especially since WhatsApp allows group conversations of up to 50 participants. To prevent yourself from being woken up by the constant lighting up of your smartphone screen, you can a either flip your phone over and ignore it or b mute the offending group chat. Tap on the group chat of your choice, then the name to bring up Group Info where you will find the option to Mute the chat for eight hours to one week or a year.
Alternatively, you can exit it altogether. Tap and hold on the chat group or individual of your choice and a tab will pop up. Select the Add Conversation Shortcut option and the chat in question will appear as the person's profile photo on your mobile desktop. Unfortunately this only applies for Android users and not iPhone ones.
To prevent yourself from ever getting duped again, insist that the contact shares their current location with you by tapping on the arrow icon next to the text box and then Share Location. There's also a way of preventing them from manually entering their location The way the location appears is a clue.
Feel free to call them out on it. Do they have someone more important to be talking to? That devilish son of a gun. Typing is a right faff when you want to use your hands for other stuff such as eating, cooking or fine embroidery. So you can now dictate any missives to your phone instead of punching them in with your digits like a total chump. Tap on it for the option to create a new list of contacts you want your message to go out to, and message away like you would normally.
Not all group chats are created equal, as some are filled with nothing but white noise. On the flipside, there are the group chats you want to stay on top of, such as the ones deciding dinner plans for the night and so on.
Go to the significant group chats, tap on the name to bring up Group Info and then Custom Notifications. There, you can select a custom message alert for the group chats of your choice. All you have to do now is remember which alert tone you assigned to which group chat. This customisation is only applicable for group chats though. WhatsApp knows how precious your chat history is to you and secures it all for you in the cloud. The next time you install WhatsApp from fresh on any device, you can simply select the Google Drive backup option at the setup screen, to have all your up-to-date messages injected into your device, straight from the cloud.
Go to Settings, then Chat Settings and then Auto-Download and tweak the settings for how you want your received media to be downloaded. Alternatively, you can trigger downloads manually by switching Auto-Download to Never. You can also save the hassle of having to clean up your camera roll every so often by tweaking Save Incoming Media off. Just carry on using WhatsApp with your regular number.
