11 WhatsApp tips to turn you into a messaging master:

1. Hide the fact that you’re ignoring someone: (Settings > Account > Privacy > Read Receipts)

2. Enjoy guilt-free message dodging by hiding your ‘last seen’ time: By heading to Settings > Account > Privacy > Last Seen, you can decide who, if anyone, you want to see when you’ve last been active. Finally, guilt-free ignoring is possible.

3. Quote your friends to prove them wrong: Instead of scrolling back through hundreds of rambling messages, taking a screenshot of the proof that your pal said they’d arrive two hours ago, then cropping it and sending it back – you can now simply quote them.

4. Use bold and italics: You can add bold, italics, and even strikethrough, To bold up, you need to but an asterisk on either side of the word, like *this*, while italics need an underscore on either side of a _word_, and strikethrough a tildes (those squiggly hyphens), just like ~this~. Feeling jazzy? You can even combine commands for *_bolditalics_* attention grabbing.

5. Mute group chat notifications: In a chat, simply select the name at the top to launch an in-message settings menu. From here you can toggle mute on.

6. Use WhatsApp on the big screen: Scan code and make it work.

7. Save your data: To enable these data-saving ways on iOS, all you need to do is go Settings > Data Usage where you’ll be able to assign download methods per content type. On Android, things are a little different. You’re offered all the same options, but you’ll have to go Settings > Chats and Calls > Media Auto-Download to find them.

8. Broadcast your private messages to the masses: Tapping the menu button reveals the ‘New broadcast’ option. This will send a single message to multiple recipients, creating an individual chat for each.

9. Make important messages easy to locate: WhatsApp messages can be starred simply be holding down on the desired correspondence and tapping the pop-up star icon. You can then jump straight to a list of all your starred messages direct from your WhatsApp homescreen.

10. See exactly when your message was read: Long press on a message you’ve sent and hit the ‘info’ tab when it pops up.

11. Draw on photos or add emoji: Once you’ve taken a photo in the app, you’ll see a series of editing tools at the top of the screen. Use these to add emoji, draw on the photo, or even add text.

12. Make a video call: Getting in a video call with one of your contacts is as simple as opening up your conversation with them and then pressing the video call icon next to the phone icon.
