In WhatsApp you can find different functions with the aim of communicating with a person as soon as possible. For example, users can implement text messages, calls or video calls.
In the application there is also the possibility of sharing the moments that are lived on a day-to-day basis or relevant information through the states, whose purpose is to generate interactions between all contacts.
In this tool it is now possible to place voice notes, a function that many users have been asking for and that WhatsApp has managed to launch in its most recent updates.
As is well known, users can choose the contacts they want to see their stories, that is, they can keep their privacy intact, especially if the message they want to show is something more personal.
Now, to place the voice notes on the iPhone, a few simple steps must be carried out and they are the following:
- Enter WhatsApp.
- Select the ‘States’ section, located at the bottom of the screen.
- Press the ‘Add status’ button located in the upper left corner.
- Immediately afterwards, press the ‘Record’ button to create the voice note.
- Once finished, release said button.
- Finally, touch the ‘Send’ section to share the status.
On the other hand, the beta for iOS (22.214.171.124) shows the option to report the statewhich had already been seen previously in the beta for Android, and is now available to testers of both applications.
Likewise, from this WABetaInfo portal they announced that when reporting a contact status, the ephemeral content will start a moderation process to check if it fits into the WhatsApp use policies.
They also indicate that this process does not compromise end-to-end encryption, always shielding the security of the different users, but that if it turns out that it has violated the WhatsApp rules, the account is exposed to being suspended.
The trick to send secret or encrypted messages on WhatsApp
Privacy is one of the priorities of messaging platforms such as WhatsApp, that frequently updates the functions aimed at the protection of user data, with features such as end-to-end encryption or systems such as two-step verification.
The company has spent months developing new features aimed at having greater control over conversations in different beta versions of this service and that are intended for both individual conversations and group chats.
Some functions are available in the Privacy section of the Settings menu, where you can modify data such as the time of the last connection, who can see the profile photo or who has access to the States. By the way, there is a trick to send coded or secret messages on WhatsApp.
Therefore, so that the user can send coded messages through this app, you can help with an ideal tool. This is Planet Calc.
With this tool, the interested party will be able to find different types of encryption with which they can play with WhatsApp. According to technology experts, A1Z26 encryption is one of the easiest systems to use, since the user will only have to change each letter by its position in the alphabet. If A is 1, B is 2, C is 3, and so on until reaching Z, which is equal to 26.
In addition, the Planet Calc tool gives you the option in this case to put the encrypted message and decrypt it, so that the user to whom the message is sent does not have to do it manually.
There is also a very useful app for Android to send encrypted messages on WhatsApp. This is Cipher Decoder, which has a box in which the user can place the message to be encoded, select the type of encryption he wants and the result of the encryption.
You will then be able to save the encryption and share it with third-party applications, including WhatsApp.
