15 interesting WhatsApp features
1. Pin an important conversation
Typing people’s names in the search bar or scrolling down the page to get to the page of a particular conversation can be time consuming and repetitive can be tedious. WhatsApp allows you to pin conversations of three different calls to the rest of the conversations. In iOS, swipe a conversation to the right and tap the pin icon to go up. In Android, hold your finger on a conversation and tap the pin button.
2. Read a message without the sender realizing it
To prevent a blue tick from appearing when reading a message, set your phone to flight mode and open the WhatsApp app to read the message. After reading, close this application and delete it from the multi-window environment. Then take the phone out of flight mode. This will keep the read message unread by the sender.
3. Change conversations to unread
If you do not have the opportunity to respond immediately after reading a message, mark the conversation with a dot. This acts as a reminder for the future. In iOS, swipe a conversation to the right and tap the unread icon. In Android, hold your finger on the conversation.
4. Disable the last visit display
WhatsApp lets you see the latest activity of your contacts and they can also see the last time you last active in this messenger.

5. Read and send your messages without touching the phone
Smart voice assistants like Siri and Google Assistant help you read and send messages without typing or even touching your phone. All you have to do is give them a voice command to do the rest for you.
6. Prevent media from downloading automatically

You can also change the media download priority for each conversation. Open a specific conversation and tap the name of the contact or group at the top of the page.
