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.I mentioned last month that the ladies of Sex and the City 2 would be getting an HP makeover, but speculated that Carrie would stay a Mac-addict.Carrie's computer has played a huge part in the series, even being the focus of an episode in season four called "My Motherboard, My Self." How could the powers that be break such a bond!?Android users can do this by hitting the Menu button in a group chat and selecting Mute, while i Phone users can find the same option in the Group Info section of a conversation.Whats App can be a data-sapping terror if you’re not on a generous plan, with photos, videos and voice messages capable of gobbling through the lion’s share of your allowance in no time.
Even if you use it on a daily basis, Whats App is packed with lots of handy, little-known features you might not be familiar with. Both a blessing and a curse, Whats App’s ticks-based system shows when your sent messages have been delivered (one grey tick), received (two grey ticks) and read (two blue ticks).
Further proof of Whats App being a maze of potential social pitfalls is the ability to hide your ‘last seen’ time.
Prevent your contacts from finding out when you were last online by navigating to Settings On that note, you can mute group chats whenever they get too lively for your liking.
Group chats tend to be either too active or suspiciously quiet, the latter often the case immediately after you remind everyone that they owe you money. Put your mind at ease by long-pressing your sent message and hitting the Information key on Android, or swiping it from left to right on i OS.
No replies after an hour when everyone was online and irritatingly chatty just a minute before you messaged? This will show you exactly who has read it and when.
To make a message bold, place it between two asterisks, like *this*.
