WhatsApp is one of the most popular communication mediums in the world today. In the past it would be used by people who were overseas, but recently everyone is using it regardless of their geographical location. Its popularity is attributed to the fact that the Facebook-owned app makes it easy for people across the world to connect with each other.
The fact that you can use it for texting, sending photos, and video calls makes it so much more appealing than any other texting system. Communicating on WhatsApp is also free, so it is readily accessible to everyone.
Until recently, the most frustrating thing about WhatsApp was that you couldn’t send a message if you didn’t have an internet connection. If you were stuck on the subway or your internet was unreliable, then your messages wouldn’t go through. This was stressful for the masses of people around the world who are reliant on the app.
Thankfully, the creators of WhatsApp realized this dilemma and came up with a solution. Today, Whatsapp is now better than ever!
There is a new update on the mobile app that enables you to send messages without the internet. This is because this message will be stored on the app server, and then it will be forwarded to the recipient. Learn more about this awesome new feature below!
What is Whatsapp?
Despite its widespread popularity, there are still some people who don’t know what the app is really about. Whatsapp is one of the largest social messaging networks in the world. The platform allows for quick and easy communication between different people in different locations across the world.
Among its many features, it’s possible to make video calls, share images, and send audio files. But one of the handiest features, in my opinion, is being able to share your location in real-time.
So with each move you make, the person you shared with will be able to see it on their device. It is the perfect feature for finding your friends at a music festival. However, it is not so cool if it’s your mum on the other end making sure you’re at the mall where you said you’d be.
How to Download Whatsapp
For those who wish to install the WhatsApp application, the procedure is very straightforward. All you have to do is go to your phone’s app store, such as the Google Play Store for Androids or the App Store for iOS devices, and search for it by name before hitting download.
Once you’ve got that done, you can perform a simple registration with your name and phone number to start using the service. Then you can begin sending free messages (and phone calls) to any of your contacts in your phone book who have a WhatsApp account. Rest assured, you do not have to worry about any hidden fees within the app! WhatsApp’s services are totally free.
Send Messages on WhatsApp with no Connection
For a long time now it’s been the case that you literally cannot even try to send a message on WhatsApp with a weak signal because the send button is simply untappable. That intensely annoying message just sits there saying waiting for signal for what may seem like ages.
This is frustrating because you may go to reply to someone but be unable to send the message properly. Then, when you finally remember to try and reply again, it is too late and the other person is already mad at your lack of response. It has always been quite a problem.
Anyway, WhatsApp developers realized this was annoying people and decided to fix it, but not many people know about it. Thankfully, now you do!
So, to use the functionality of sharing messages without having access to the internet, simply update the WhatsApp application on your phone to the latest version. Then, you’ll notice that the send button is always available.
So write what you need to get off your chest, hit the send button, and, even if you don’t have internet, Whatsapp will automatically send the message whenever possible. This feature ensures that your most urgent messages are sent as soon as possible, without your having to remember to send them once you regain connection.
As an added bonus, this latest WhatsApp version also comes with the ability to send as many as 30 photos and even videos at once to recipients through the phone. Before this, the limit was only 10 photos.
To take this a step further, if you don’t want to be seen ‘online‘ but you need to send a message, all you need to do is switch your device to flight mode. Once you’ve done that, open Whatsapp and send your message. Then, when you’ve finished, close the Whatsapp app and switch of flight-mode. This is a great hack that this new feature made possible!
Thanks to WhatsApp, more than 2 billion of its users can always keep in touch with their loved ones. If you have any questions about this new feature, visit the official Whatsapp website to answer this and any other questions you may have.
