apps to add extra features to WhatsApp

The creation of new features for WhatsApp tends to follow a constant cycle: external apps are always displayed with features that users want, while WhatsApp decides whether or not to implement them in their official version. 

To date, there are still tons of features that have not come to the official version of WhatsApp for Android. 

That said, the five apps we recommend are completely secure and do exactly what they promise without any second purpose. 

Automatic replies for WhatsApp

Although Can not Talk is not an app created specifically for use with WhatsApp, it works great. It’s a free application that allows you to reply with automatic messages when you receive calls, text messages or messages via messaging services. Once you have set the general status as far away, you can specify which message you want to send to your contacts by archiving all messages sent in a log within the app that allows you to manage conversations that you need to answer later.

Chat with users without adding them as contacts

It’s rather inconvenient to have to add a phone number to your contact list just to be able to talk to the user via WhatsApp. This is particularly irritating if you have to speak daily with strangers for work purposes. Click 2 Chat is a free app that allows you to start conversations in WhatsApp with any phone number simply by entering it in the app. This creates a new chat window in the WhatsApp app even if you do not have the number saved as a contact.

Delete media files stored by WhatsApp

If you know something about how WhatsApp works, then you’ll know that all the photos you send and receive through the app are stored locally, indefinitely, on your device and could potentially occupy hundreds of megabytes of storage space if you do not keep up with cleaning of them. Cleaner for WhatsApp is 

an app that shows you all the space occupied by photos, videos, and audio from the app, allowing you to detect and delete all the repeated files stored. A protection so your mother does not ask you to “clean her phone” for the umpteenth time.

Use WhatsApp for businesses

Of all the apps mentioned in this list, WhatsApp Business is the only one actually official. After a lot of hype and trial phases, anyone can use this messaging client geared exclusively towards the business world. You can associate a number and a device with your account and use it as a means of communicating with your customers. It’s a much more elegant way to use WhatsApp for commercial purposes.

Chat bubbles for WhatsApp

Finally, a function that allows us to capture two birds with one stone. With the Dashdow app, you can enable a system of icons and tabs on your desktop like those of Facebook Messenger which is a nice feature by itself. But along with this, it means you can read your conversations without having to open the chat tab, so your messages will not be marked as read. That said, for the operation of the last function, you need to install the additional app, Notifly. For anyone who is obsessed with double blue ticks, this is great news.
