As soon as you enter a phone number, check the app automatically or the phone number with a WhatsApp account. So you can make sure you someone add that actually has WhatsApp. That works very easily. Simply press “New chat” and then on “New contact” in order to perform the check.

XDA Developers discovered, moreover, that there is another major update to the popular messaging app. After a lot of complaints about the spread of nepnieuws has WhatsApp already has several measures were taken to counter this. Be so forwarded messages are now tagged and they will not be able indefinitely to be forwarded.

There will soon be a built-in function at the origin of the images to find out. With the so-called ‘Reverse Image Search’ you can get a picture from WhatsApp in Google Images to see where this comes from.
