WhatsApp is the among the most used messaging apps in the world, whether it is used to talk to friends or doing business. Because of this, it is super important to know how to use the tool well and be organized with it. In order to do so, here are 5 tips for you to become a power-user of this app.

Hide notifications for specific groups

Although they are widely used to connect family or friends, chat groups can also be very congested. To turn off a notification, tap and hold a group on the home screen and look for the bell at the top. In the window, select the time you want to silence. Then check whether you want the messages in the group to appear in the system notification.

Limit access to personal information

If you want to limit the access of strangers to your information, WhatsApp offers a solution for this. Just access the application settings, tap account and choose the privacy option. In this menu you can decide who will see the photo of your profile, your stories, confirmation of reading and others.

Transfer content easily

Even though it may not seem like it, doing WhatsApp transfer backup and restore is quite easy. With the right tool in hand, you can even transfer WhatsApp from iPhone to Android in the blink of an eye.

Easily send and handle recordings

If you are one of those who loves to send giant audios and listen to them later, WhatsApp has a function that facilitates this work. In the conversation window, tap the clip and select the audio option.

If the application asks what to do, choose “Save with WhatsApp”. That done, just push the button to capture your voice and speak at will. You have up to fifteen minutes. In the end, you can listen to your own audio before sending.

Save data by disabling automatic downloads

If your mobile data plan is limited or you do not want to fill your mobile phone with photos and videos, you can turn off automatic downloads. To do this, go to the settings and go to the data and storage menu. In the automatic download column, choose what you can download when you are on a mobile network, WiFi, and roaming.

Unchecked options will only be downloaded if you touch them. Oh, and in that, you can also decrease data consumption on calls.
