Top Whatsapp Hidden Tricks that everyone must know

whatsapp tricksWhatsapp has swiftly grown from a startup founded in 2009 to a $19 Billion company. After acquired by Facebook in 2014, there had brought major and minor changes in whatsapp like introduction of voice calls, end to end encryption, video calls to name a few.

Whataspp has been introducing many features which can be called as secret or hidden features as they are not directly usable.  Based on my experience, I have listed out few tricks that might be useful to you...


1) To add bold formatting to the text, just add * (asterisk) before and after the text


eg. *chaprama.com*

2) To type letters in italic, add _ (underscore) before and after the text

eg. _chaprama.com_

3) To strikeout the text, add ~ (tilde) before and after the text

eg. ~chaprama.com~

You can also use the combinations of the symbols. For example, if you want to have bold and italic text you have to use the combination of * and _

eg. *_chaprama.com_*

4) Do you ever know that you can send message self or registered whatsapp mobile number? Here is the trick how to do so


  • First save your mobile number with the contact name you wish
  • Now go to contacts in your phone and select the contact you just saved
  • Beside your mobile number, you will find the whatsapp symbol. Click the icon
  • You will be directed to whatsapp and from this step, I need not explain what to do

5) In a group, there are many members and sometimes it will be difficult to reachout to a particular person. For this I had a trick...
  • In the compose box of a group jut add @ before any name
  • Now you will see many group member names displayed and you can select one you want to reachout
