How to Use WhatsApp's Disappearing Messages Feature

Remember those embarrassing teenage texts you wish could vanish forever? 

Ever wondered how to keep your chats clutter-free?

 Or maybe you’ve wished for a way to make sensitive information disappear after it’s been read?

Here's a Cool Tip.  Use WhatsApp's new Disappear Messages feature.

This new hidden feature lets you send messages that self-destruct after a set time, adding a layer of privacy and ephemeral charm to your WhatsApp conversations.

Disappearing messages is an optional feature you can turn on for more privacy.

You can set messages to disappear 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days after they’re sent unless that message is kept. 

The duration you choose only affects new messages in the chat, not messages you’ve already sent or received.

You can choose to turn disappearing messages on for all chats or select specific chats. In individual chats, either you or the person you’re messaging can turn disappearing messages on or off.

Here's how to do it.

Individual or Group Chat
  • Open any individual or group chat in WhatsApp.
  • Tap the contact name (individual) or group name (group).
  • Select "Disappearing messages" from the menu.
  • Decide how long your messages will live before they self-destruct: 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days.
  • Compose your message as usual and press send.
  • A timer icon will appear next to the message, indicating its expiration date.
  • Both you and the recipient will be notified about the disappearing message setting.
  • Watch Them Fade Away.

Once the timer runs out, the message automatically disappears from the chat for both participants.

No trace, no screenshot, just pure digital dust!

You also can set disappearing messages as default for new individual chats.

This is perfect for sharing confidential information or sensitive topics without leaving a permanent record.

Here's how to do it.

Change Default for All Chats
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Privacy.
  • Tap Default message timer.
  • Selecting a duration.

Preserve the Quality of Your Memories on WhatsApp for iPhones

WhatsApp Messenger
Have you ever shared a high-resolution photo on the iPhone WhatsApp app, only to find that its quality was significantly reduced? 

Or perhaps you’ve sent a video, but the recipient complained about the poor resolution? 

If so, you’re not alone. 

But what if there was a way to preserve the original quality of your photos and videos when sharing them on WhatsApp?

Here's a Cool Tip.  Use the newest version of What'sApp Messenger app for iPhone.

WhatsApp Messenger, the popular messaging app, has introduced a feature that allows users to send photos and videos at the original quality of the media files. 

Here's how to use it.
  • Ensure you have the most recent version, 23.24.73 or greater, of the WhatsApp Messenger app for iPhone.
  • Save the photo or video.
  • Open WhatsApp and access the chat where you want to send the image or video.
  • Tap the "+" icon and select the “Document” option.

  • Tap “Choose Photo or Video”.

  • Select the image or video and tap Send to confirm your choice.
The primary benefit of this feature is that it allows you to maintain the original quality of your photos and videos. 

When you send photos as documents, WhatsApp Messenger does not compress the images. 

This ensures that the recipient receives the photos in their original quality. 

You can also select multiple photos and send them as a single document, making it easier for your recipients to view and download them.

This feature is rolling out to users over the coming weeks.

That's it!

How to Silence Unknown Callers in WhatsApp

Are you tired of being interrupted by spam calls on WhatsApp?

If so, you're not alone. 

Millions of people receive spam calls on WhatsApp every day.

Here's a Cool Tip: Silence unknown callers in WhatsApp

This will help you to reduce the number of spam calls you receive and it will also protect your privacy.

WhatsApp is a great way to stay in touch with friends and family but it can also be a nuisance if you receive a lot of calls from unknown numbers. 

Here's how to do it:

  • Open WhatsApp on your mobile device.
  • In the top right corner, click on the three vertical dots.
  • Select Settings.
  • Select Privacy.
  • Select Calls.
  • Toggle on the option to Silence unknown callers.

Once you've done this, WhatsApp will no longer ring when you receive a call from an unknown number. 

The call will still show up in your call log, so you can still see who called you if you need to.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • If you call or message an unknown number, you won't be able to silence their calls in the future.
  • You can still block unknown callers if you want to prevent them from calling you altogether.
  • If you have a lot of contacts saved in your phone, you may want to create a group for unknown callers so that you can easily see who has called you.
  • Silencing unknown callers is a great way to reduce the number of spam calls you receive. It's also a good way to protect your privacy, as you won't be interrupted by calls from people you don't know.
