Whatsapp is quite a popular application in communication-related apps. The application is popular and a complete success as it gives complete safety and privacy to users. Almost every smartphone user has once tried the application. A lot of features are available in the app that users are unaware to use.
Whatsapp has a status feature that looks common among Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook itself. The difference is that the feature itself has more in it that users need to know about. This status feature allows users to upload pics and write texts to give thoughts and share moments.
Here is a list of tips and tricks for users to completely understand the features they are provided with.
The feature of status allows you to share your moments as pictures or thoughts as text. It can be shared with all the contacts that are saved on the device itself. The point of status is not just to share but maintaining privacy on WhatsApp is always a priority. Users can choose from the contact who can see the status.
It can be done from settings in privacy where the option of share with is present. Select from the three options of
- Contacts – only the contacts saved on your device will be able to see
- My contacts except – you can select from your contact whom you don’t want to share the status with
- Only share with – you can share it with the selected people on your contact list
Some of the contacts on everyone’s phone are too active for their own good and that can be annoying. If you don’t like someone’s status you can mute them. By muting their status won’t show on your WhatsApp unless you unmute them. To mute a contact go to the status and long-press on their status to get a pop up that says mute. Tap the mute and you will no longer see that status.
Reply To Status With Images
Each status can be replied normally with text but there is also an option to reply with the image. The camera icon is present in the lower right of the screen. The reply can be done by swiping up on the story.
Skip And Pause Status
Some status is long or more interesting so you might want to stop and read it or take a look at it. To pause a status you just have to tap on the status as long as you want it to pause. To skip a status you have to tap on it once or swipe right. To go back to the old status you can swipe left.
Change Color of Emojis And Texts
In status, users can add emojis in pictures and text as well. It is a feature which is missing in many social media apps. You can change the colour of emojis just by adding emoji and using the thin colour stripe on the right of the screen.
