WhatsApp is the most important application for chat and direct communication. But it is no secret to anyone that the experience of using it on the PC is not the best, especially if it is compared with competing applications such as Telegram, or even if it is compared with an application from the same company, which is Messenger. Among the shortcomings of the WhatsApp application on the PC is that it only works when the phone in which the number is registered is connected to the Internet.
Although the experience is not perfect, there are some tips and tricks that will greatly improve your user experience. These tips will be ideal if you are using WhatsApp on PC through browser and not through Windows application.
WhatsApp keyboard shortcuts عبر
A large number of platforms, applications, and websites offer keyboard shortcuts. What it means is a shortcut that is run by pressing more than one button at the same time, just like Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to copy and paste. These are the most important keyboard shortcuts for WhatsApp on the web:
Mute WhatsApp: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + M, where M means Mute
– Send the conversation to the file: Ctrl + Alt + E
Delete all chat: Ctrl + Alt + Backspace (back button)
– Pin chat: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + P, where P means Pin
– Search within WhatsApp: Ctrl + Alt + / (the dash above the numbers)
– Search within the chat itself: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + F
– Start a new conversation: Ctrl + Alt + N
Create a new group: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + N
One of the most important points to keep in mind is to quickly implement the shortcut and press the buttons in the same order as above.
Open more than one account on the same device
It is easy to use more than one WhatsApp account on your smartphone, this is known, either through the options integrated in the phones that allow cloning the WhatsApp application, or by relying on the WhatsApp Business application.
To do the same on the computer, you have more than one solution, the first is to open the account in the Incognito / Private window, but as soon as you close this window, the account will be closed and you will have to log in every time, so this solution only works when used one time only. On the contrary, if you want to use a second account permanently, you have to solve one of the following simple solutions:
1- Open an account in the browser and an account in the Windows application
2- Open an account in your main browser and an account in another browser
3- Use the Containers function in Firefox to separate the records of each tab
No blue ticks
Read Receipts is a WhatsApp function that allows both parties to know if the other party has read the message or not, however, in WhatsApp Web you can freely read messages without this indicator appearing, simply by relying on the WAToolKit extension.
Classify and organize messages professionally
The main screen of the application is usually full of messages and conversations, some of them are for work, some are personal conversations, some are messages that you have not responded and some are official messages.
The WhatsApp Tabs application, which comes in the form of an extension for Chrome, allows you to divide conversations into tabs according to the type of message, which is shown in the following image. You can also download the WhatsApp Tabs extension for free.
Activate dark mode and change the background
The dark mode in WhatsApp has always been waiting, and previously we used applications and tools to activate it, but now it is officially available if you do not know, and activating it is very simple. Just head to the main menu, then settings, and finally appearance, and from there choose dark.
Also, if you are tired of the app wallpaper on the web, you can simply change it. All you have to do is go back to the settings, then to the chat wallpaper option and finally choose the wallpaper.
