In the world of applications, WhatsApp is considered as the king. Almost every user finds it a handy app to communicate with his contacts very conveniently. It is a revolutionary messaging application that can be operated with the aid of a primitive smart phone.
The app has been transformed to meet our needs of sending files, documents, contacts, audio, video, and other necessary attachments to our contacts without any hassle. Even if you have a feeble network connection, you will be able to send or receive messages. Sending bigger files is also easier than any other way. The files are stored in your memory. You can always find them safe and share them whenever you want.
WhatsApp allows a user to copy the texts in the chat box and share it with other contacts. The problem appears when the copied texts are more than one. Many other added characters add up to the copied texts and make it tough to read. To solve this problem, the users often use the screenshot approach. They take a screenshot of the conversation and send it to the enthusiastic receiver.
The limitation of this approach is that if the conversation continues for few pages, you will have to take a lot of screenshots and send them chronologically. If the sent screenshots are not in order, the receiver will not be able to understand the context of the conversation. This is why it is better to convert the messages in the chat box in a text file format and send it or save it in your email without any hassle.
Features of WhatsApp
The convenient app is not limited to messaging the receiver but you can also call your contacts. You can either perform an audio or video call without any hassle. In fact, the data transfer rate is very appreciable for this app. It can easily go parallel with the performance of other communication applications available for the laptops or PCs. The world famous application is popular due to its excellent user interface. The simple options and system features are easy to understand and handle. One can easily find out the actual meaning of the features by changing the interface language in the settings. Moreover, the chat messages and multimedia files get stored on the phone or in your email ID. If you decide to change your phone, reinstall WhatsApp, or lose your phone somehow, you will be able to extrude the last updated information from the cloud storage very easily. You can also take a manual backup of the messages and transfer it to the newly installed version without any hassle.
There are few features that the users want but the developer has not provided yet. This is why the users often shift to GBWhatsApp or WhatsApp Plus and use the modified versions to avail the features. These modified versions done by the Android app developers contain excellent privacy features and file sharing features. You can easily show your status online all the time even if you are not using WhatsApp. You can block the blue tick feature, double tick features, status seen feature, etc in order to maintain utmost privacy from a specific contact. The reliability of the service from the conventional version is impeccable. The 128-bit encryption method saves your conversation with a person in the most secure way. No one will be able to decode the messages. The problem of sending the messages from a particular conversation box still remains. The new version of WhatsApp saves ample time when you can avail the new feature of converting your messages into a text file and send it via using a valid email ID.
