In the app's settings, you’ll find the Data Usage option, which lets you limit the types of media you automatically download on a mobile connection.
You can also lower the amount of data Whats App calls munch through from there.
Sticking with the email theme, you can also use Whats App to send the same message to lots of your contacts without lumping them all into one group, much like the BCC option on email. All you need to do is hit the New Broadcast option on the app’s main menu.
Smartphones contain such deeply personal information that handing them over to a friend or family member can prove an ordeal.
If you’ve gone through the effort of turning a conversation into a home screen shortcut, you may as well bless it with a custom notification too.
On both Android and i OS, just tap the top bar above a chat and select Custom Notifications.
Beyond showing off, there’s no need to italicise your Whats App messages, or make them bold – all phone users know that’s what Caps Lock is for.
However, if you have the finger speed and are willing to commit the commands to memory, you can do exactly that.
As with emails, you can easily mark key messages with a star, allowing you to find them easily when you want to.
Simply tap and hold a message and hit the star icon to save it, and return to it later by selecting Starred Messages in Whats App’s main menu.
