WHAT DOES A GRAY CHECK REALLY MEAN ON WHATSAPP

  • The first thing you have to know is that if a gray check appears for a long time, your message has not yet been sent and that it will be done in the next few seconds or minutes.
  • If it has been a while and the gray double checks do not appear, then you must think that there is a bad internet connection from your sender or, it may even be in an area where there is no signal.
  • The other reason for the gray check is that the WhatsApp application may have been crashed. For this we recommend you visit social networks in order to find out.
  • Finally, and as a last resort, a gray check means that the other person has blocked you on WhatsApp. Remember that you will not be able to see their last connection time, their profile photo or their statuses.

HOW TO ACTIVATE THE ‘NINJA MODE’ IN WHATSAPP

In days when WhatsApp never ceases to amaze with its new functions such as the possibility of adding a person through the QR code , or the ability to make video calls of up to 50 people , or that not all cell phones will be able to receive their latest update, There is always news so that anyone, wherever they are, can send a photo, video, GIF, voice note, etc., in less than a second so that their contact receives it immediately and they choose whether to read or go unnoticed.

How to do it?

  • To achieve this 100% you must install the Ninja app on WhatsApp from Android or AppStore.
  • Give it permission in the settings of your smartphone so that the messages reach the app without having to open WhatsApp to read them.
  • This way you will be able to be ‘invisible’ in the app.
  • This will notify you every time they send you messages and you can read them.

How to put statuses with YouTube videos

The trick is quite simple and you will not have to download any third-party application that makes your conversations no longer so private, much less security is affected in WhatsApp . What you have to do is the following:

  • You must first open YouTube and find the song you want to share with your friends.
  • Then hit the “Share” option on YouTube.
  • A box will appear at the bottom on both iPhone and Android. Press the WhatsApp logo.
  • When you open what you want to share on WhatsApp, select the Status option.
  • There click on share in States and that’s it.

From that moment on, anyone who sees your WhatsApp statuses will be able to view the YouTube video by clicking on the link. In case that person uses YouTube Premium, they will be able to watch the clip without having to leave the quick messaging app.

So you can activate automatic responses

In order to use it, you need to install a third-party application, the same one that will request access to your list of cell phones that you have saved on your smartphone, but not the reading of your messages from the quick messaging app.

This application is called AutoResponder for WA – Auto Answer and you can download it for free from Google Play . After that follow these steps:

  • When opening AutoResponder you must provide permissions to configure notifications.
  • After that, you must write the message you want to send to all the contacts who write to you during the hour of absence.
  • For example, if someone sends you a “Hello”, you can write them to respond with another “Hello, I can’t help you at the moment. Send me a message at that time ”.
  • With this you would already have your automatic reply on WhatsApp . You can also program that automatic message to be sent to a specific user or all.
  • On the other hand, the pro version of AutoResponder allows you to schedule your message at a certain time or even set an expiration date.

Trick to chat without having the cell phone nearby

The first thing is to connect your cellular device to your main Wi-Fi network . After that, turn on your PC or laptop and do the same . Remember that both must share the same wireless frequency.

The following is quite easy: open WhatsApp Web on your laptop (it is recommended to download the program that offers the same app from its website), then all you have to do is scan the QR code on your computer and that’s it.

If you separate your mobile phone from your PC, WhatsApp Web will not present any type of cut or lag in your conversations since it will be linked to your phone by Wi-Fi . That means that if you left your phone in the living room and your laptop is in your room, the chats will keep coming.

In case you log out of WhatsApp for the computer, you must rescan the QR code to make it work. Similarly, if you disconnect your terminal from your Wi-Fi, communication will also be lost.
