In this post, I will show you the 7 new cool WhatsApp tricks, secret features, hidden features, and hacks that every User should know.

Usually, when you share or send a photo or a picture to someone, Whatsapp compresses it to save data. This degrades the picture quality significantly. But you can send High definition pictures as it is without compression via Whatsapp. To do so, Tap on Attachment icon, select Documents instead of Camera or Photos and then browse the picture which you want to send. Select it and send. It will be uploaded and sent as a document file and when you tap to open it, it will open in your image browser and quality of the picture will be the same.
2. Read Messages without Sending Read Receipts
To read messages without sending the blue tick to the sender, you can add the Whatsapp widget on Your Homescreen and then whenever a message comes, just scroll it and read it. This way sender will receive delivery ticks but not read receipt.
3. Schedule WhatsApp Messages
To use this feature, we need to use this third party app called Sqedit. This app helps you to schedule messages on Whatsapp and it sends message automatically. So next time if you have to wish someone on his or her B’day, just Schedule a beautiful Birthday wish and relax. This app will do will do rest of the work..
4. Create GIFs Directly in WhatsApp
GIFs are better than short video clips and can also be used instead of Emoji. GIFs also became very popular in recent times and now you can also create your own GIFs on Whatsapp and send to anyone.
To do so, you can either capture a clip of your or select a video from the gallery and then adjust the length of the video to either 6 or less than 6 Seconds. Then tap on GIF tab just below the clip.
