Nothing is more famous than the groups in WhatsApp, but nothing more tedious than having to ask permission to add or remove someone in a group? To avoid the absolute monopoly of an administrator, you may add other people as administrators in group chats.


You send a message to a group, the minutes passed and no one answers. It may be because of two things, either because they ignored it, or because the message has not been read yet. The first option we cannot be sure if it is true or not, but we know if they have read the message.


The groups are very useful and it is even fun to stay in touch with friends, family or co-workers. But to be honest, we all have a group or a contact on WhatsApp that drives us crazy with the sea of ​​messages and notifications.


If what you need is to send a message to many people, but you do not want to do it in a group, more like individually to each person. Then what you need is the broadcast messages option.


If you change your smartphone, once you install WhatsApp you will see that all conversations were lost, but there is a way to save conversations and avoid losing any data.

  • Make a backup of your old smartphone conversations. You can do this in Settings -> Chat Settings > Save conversation.
  • Connect your device to your computer via USB and locate the WhatsApp/Databases folder. There is where the backups are stored. The file name will start with “MSGSTORE” followed by a date, depending on the day and time that has been saved.
  • Save the entire Databases folder in your computer.
  • Install WhatsApp on your new phone. Be careful; do not open the app yet.
  • Connect your new smartphone to your computer via USB. When you open the WhatsApp folder you will see Databases again, if not, you can create one with that name.
  • Copy all files which name starts with “mgstore” from your computer to your new phone.

One of the reasons why more data gets wasted is because the photos and videos that are sent to WhatsApp are automatically downloaded, and sometimes you do not want to see them all.

There you will be asked if they should be downloaded only when you are connected to WiFi or never or always, you choose.

9. Use WhatsApp on your PC

This is the official way to use your application on a computer.
