  1. Same WhatsApp, Multiple devices
    After years of waiting, WhatsApp finally gave us the ability to use our same WhatsApp account on multiple devices. So, the feature basically works like how you use WhatsApp Web. All you need to do is — suppose you want to run WhatsApp on a different phone. Simply, download WhatsApp on the new device, and while you’re on the screen that says enter your phone number, simply tap the three dots in the top-right and select Link to existing account. After that, scan the QR code from your primary phone, and voila, you can now run the same WhatsApp account on two smartphones. And you can simultaneously do this on 4 different devices, which is pretty cool and handy.
  2. Chat lock
    Chat Lock is another cool feature that has been a long time coming. Up until now, to hide chats, either you could archive them or lock WhatsApp altogether. But now, you can specifically lock WhatsApp chats. To do this, simply head over to the profile info screen of any chat contact that you’d like to lock. Then, scroll down to find the ‘Chat lock’ option. On the next screen, enable “Lock this chat with fingerprint”, authenticate and you are done.
  3. Edit messages
    Similar to Telegram, you can now edit sent WhatsApp messages, basically to rectify any mistake or edit your message. To do this, tap and hold on to the message you wish to edit. Now select the ‘Edit’ option from the three-dots menu in the top-right. Make the changes to the text and hit the ‘tick’ option to finalise the changes. Note, you can only edit texts within the first 15 minutes, and there’s going to be an edited tag below the edited message.
  4. Share high-quality photos
    Up until now, if you had to share a high-quality photo with someone on WhatsApp, you had to rely on sending a photo as a document. Well, not anymore. Simply, go to WhatsApp Settings, look for Storage and Data, and within Media Upload Quality, choose “Best quality” for Photo Upload quality. This way, you can send your photos in the best possible quality on WhatsApp without relying on the “sending photo as document” feature.
  5. Dedicated video recording mode
    Previously, to directly record a video from WhatsApp, users had to press and hold the shutter button in the camera section of WhatsApp. But now, with the dedicated video recording mode, there’s a separate button altogether that lets you record videos.
  6. Voice status
    We all know how to send voice messages on WhatsApp. But did you know you can now set voice messages as your status updates? Very simple. Head over to the ‘Status’ tab on WhatsApp and select the ‘pencil’ icon at the bottom. On the next screen, tap the ‘microphone’ icon and start recording your voice message for up to 30 seconds.
  7. Status link previews
    When posting a link as your status, WhatsApp can now automatically add a preview image by fetching the thumbnail or the featured image from the URL. Basically, with this feature, the person hitting your link will have context by seeing the thumbnail, like what the link is actually talking about.

We hope this post will help you to know the best WhatsApp features to enhance your messaging experience . Let us know in comments your thoughts on it.
