WhatsApp for Android Tips and Tricks

1. How to Disable Automatic Loading of Multimedia Files on WhatsApp?

When you receive a lot of images via WhatsApp you do not always want them to be downloaded by default. This isn't only because they are not that interesting, downloading them consumes a lot of data.

  • Go to the Settings> Data Usage. 
  • Choose which items can be downloaded automatically with mobile data, WiFi or roaming.
  • Click on the configuration that you want, for example "using mobile data", and then select your preferred options - you can ignore the ones you don't want.
  • If nothing needs to be downloaded automatically, simply turn off all of the available options.

2. How to Stop Saving WhatsApp Media to Phone Gallery

When you download a media in WhatsApp, it will be automatically saved to your phone gallery. However, you can stop the media from being displayed in your phone's gallery. To do so, you will need to create a .nomedia file in the WhatsApp images folder.

Note: this will hide all of your WhatsApp pictures from the gallery.

First, you will need to have a file explorer. You can download a file explorer from Google Play Store.

After downloading a file explorer, you will need to browse to WhatsApp/Media/WhatsApp Images/ and create a file named .nomedia (the period is necessary).

If you wish to view your photos in the gallery later, simply delete the .nomedia file.
3. Turn Words Bold, Italic or Strikethrough

Sometimes certain words need more emphasis and shouty caps just isn't going to cut it. Don't worry, WhatsApp allows you to make whichever words or phrases you want bold, italic, or strikethrough them altogether.
Add an asterisk either side of the word or phrase for *bold*. Add an underscore either side of the word or phrase for _italic_. Add a tildes to either side of the word or phase for ~strikethrough~.

How to Keep WhatsApp Messages after Changing to New Number or New Phone

Nowadays almost everyone is using WhatsApp, while sometimes we have to change to a new phone or new phone number. The problem is that one WhatsApp account is linked with one phone number, which makes it inconvenient to switch phones or SIM cards. Nevertheless, it is not impossible. Here are instructions solving the problems.

Option 1. Change to New Number

If you change to a new phone number and want to keep the WhatsApp chat history on your phone which is linked with the old number, you can utilize the “Change number” feature within WhatsApp.
  • Step 1. On your phone, go to Menu button -> Settings -> Account -> Change number.
  • Step 2. Read the description, then tap NEXT.
  • Step 3. Enter your old phone number and new phone number, then tap DONE.
  • Step 4. Check the SMS send to your new phone number, and enter the 6-digit.

This will set your phone number as the linked number with your WhatsApp account and the chat history is still on your phone.

Option 2. Change to New Number and New Phone

If you switch to a new phone and new number, you have to change the number on your old phone first and then transfer the chat history to new phone. The steps for changing number haven been listed on Option 1. Following is the instruction for restoring WhatsApp messages and files to new phone.

If your WhatsApp chat history is backed up to Google Drive:
  • Step 1. On your new phone, install or re-install (if it has been installed) WhatsApp.
  • Step 2. Run and start the set up wizard.
  • Step 3. The app will automatically find the WhatsApp backup on your Google Drive.
  • Step 4. Tap Restore.

In this case, you have to set up the same Google Drive account on your new phone as you did on the old one.

If your WhatsApp chat history is saved in phone storage:

WhatsApp automatically makes backup to phone storage everyday by default. In this case, you have to move the local storage files from the old phone to your new phone. It would be convenient to do the transfer on a computer. After that, you can install or re-install WhatsApp on your new phone and restore the chat history.

Note: If there are Google Drive backup and local backup on your phone at the same time, WhatsApp would find Google Drive backup only. In this case, you have to log out Google Drive on your phone, or disconnect WhatsApp backup from Google Drive temporarily.

If you want to recover deleted or lost WhatsApp messages and attachments, please try iReparo Android Data Recovery. It can also retrieve many other kinds of phone data.

How to Delete WhatsApp Backup from Google Drive


When do you need to delete WhatsApp backup from Google Drive?

  1.  When you realize that it is not safe to keep too much personal information on the internet, you may need this tutorial.
  2.  Many people know that we can recover deleted WhatsAppmessages from backup by reinstalling the app and it will find backup from Google Drive or local storage. However, if you have Google Drive backup and local backup simultaneously, the app will show Google Drive backup only. This is inconvenient when the deleted messages or files were merely in local backup. As a result, you have to disconnect or delete Google Drive backup.  

Step-by-step instruction:

Step 1. Visit https://drive.google.com on your computer browser. If you use a mobile device, remember to switch the page to desktop version.

Step 2. Log in with your Google Drive account (the same one that linked to your WhatsApp).
Step 3. Click the Cog icon.

Step 4. Choose Settings.

Step 5. Click Manage Apps.

Step 6. Scroll down to find WhatsApp or other apps.
Step 7. Click Options.

Step 8. Choose "Disconnect from drive" or "Delete hidden app data".

Step 9. Confirm your choice.


Notice: 
  • If you choose Disconnect from drive, you can still keep the backup app data in case you need them in the future. It’s up to you.
  • As you can see, this tip also suits for other apps, like Viber.
