This popular free application is a freeware, cross-platform and encrypted messaging service for smartphone users. It uses the internet to send texts, images, gifs, videos, documents, locations, audio files, contacts and voice notes to other people connected on cell phones with their numbers. You can also make voice calls and individual video calls. But that is not all…

It also incorporates a new feature called “Status”, which allows you to upload photographs and recordings that are deleted after 24 hours, being visible normally to all known. Something imported from the main attraction of Snapchat, given that Facebook is currently of both. At the beginning of 2014 the company that created it, WhatsApp Inc. was acquired for approximately 21.8 billion dollars. At that time they had 600 million users, being the most famous of the moment. But there are many facts and secrets about her that most people are unaware of that we are going to discuss on this post.

 

1. WhatsApp Security

Security

When we send messages through the application, they navigate the web without any security, which means that anyone can access the information. To avoid data leaks and to be used against us, intelligent encryption has been created that prevents outsiders from reading our conversations.

WhatsApp provides end-to-end encryption, which means that when you send a text message to a contact in your phonebook, only you and the recipient can access the conversation account, including pictures, videos, voicemails, and documents. It should be mentioned that not even the developer of this application can see such content.

 

2. Updates

WhatsApp updates

Although everything depends on the operating system of your phone, WhatsApp updates are always constant. Before, you could only send text messages with emoji’s, now you can make video calls, share pictures, write in bold, italic, crossed out, send gifs and put dynamic status so that the other people can see them.

 

3. Status

One of the new features that this app has recently implemented is the possibility of sharing status a little more dynamic, since it is not just text, you can now use images, video fragments, and gifs for 24 hours before they disappear automatically.

 

4. Who can see our status?

Once the application is installed, it is automatically configured so that all your contacts can see your statuses. To change this, you need to go to the privacy part, located in the upper left and select one of the three options to choose who you want to share with that content.

 

5. WhatsApp Beta

A beta version of any program is a test phase prior to the official release of some updates. This means that the people who have it installed on their cell phone, will be able to enjoy the news that the application launches before the others have access.

But not everything is as good as it seems, because users who have this version, will be installing updates on your device without knowing what they work for. In addition, those who do not have Beta, will not be able to enjoy the benefits like yours.

 

6. The new clip

One of the most recent updates of WhatsApp generated a lot of controversies, because they said that with the arrival of the clip would let our contacts see our current location. However, the rumors spread, giving way to a tool whose main objective is to position specific conversations first, to keep them always up.

 

7. Record text messages

whatsapp voice text

Sometimes it is very tedious to write a very long message and to give a solution to that, exists in all keyboards of mobile phones, a function in which you must dictate to the cell everything you want to tell the other person and automatically it will become text.

 

8. Lost conversations

Something that has happened to us on more than one occasion is to have inadvertently or accidentally erased a conversation, and want to recover it because it is important to us. However, there is a way to get them back. Simply uninstall WhatsApp from your mobile and reinstall it. Then, at one point you will be given the option to retrieve previous texts and dialogues, saved in your history.
