WhatsApp remains the leading instant messaging application in the digital world, largely due to many people continuing to use it for both personal and professional communication.
Users can send photos, videos, stickers, documents, and links via the platform. Moreover, with constant updates, users have control over their messages to the extent of being able to delete or edit them.
However, there are external tricks that can be performed to surprise all added contacts. For instance, users can write “backwards” in WhatsApp.
To achieve this, it is important to note that it will not be necessary to install an external application or APK, or a new keyboard on your mobile device.
It’s worth noting that the use of such apps can compromise user privacy, as they do not offer end-to-end encryption. Likewise, some of them may contain malware, which can significantly affect device functions.
How to Write “Backwards” in WhatsApp?
- Open WhatsApp.
- Access the chat where you want to send the “backwards” message.
- Once there, go to your preferred browser and search for the Flip Text website.
- Enter the site.
- Then, type your message in the first box.
- Next, go to the bottom of the page and press on the ‘Flip Text’ section.
- In the second box, your “backwards” message will appear.
- Copy the text.
- Go back to WhatsApp and paste it in the open chat.
- Lastly, press send, and you’re done.
How to Activate the ‘MSN Messenger’ Mode in WhatsApp
More than 20 years ago, Microsoft created MSN Messenger, also known as Windows Live Messenger, an instant messaging platform that was very popular in the early 2000s.
In fact, long before smartphones and Wi-Fi networks existed, millions of people used MSN Messenger to chat with their loved ones and friends. The service offered an instant messaging platform with features such as the famous ‘nudges.’
However, MSN Messenger mode is making a comeback on WhatsApp, allowing Android phone users to make various changes to the app. For instance, they can modify the main icon, have customized backgrounds, use classic emojis, and even hear the characteristic MSN Messenger ‘tukutin’ sound when someone sends a message.
How to Activate it?
- Change the WhatsApp icon to the MSN Messenger icon:
You should install Nova Launcher, an app available on the Play Store. After downloading, grant permissions to modify the main screen of the cell phone. Then, press and hold the WhatsApp icon for a few seconds until the ‘Edit’ option appears, where you can replace the green logo with the MSN Messenger one, which you should have previously downloaded in PNG format.
- Set the characteristic MSN Messenger sound:
For this, download the sound from YouTube and convert it to mp3 format. After this, go to WhatsApp Settings, then to Notifications, and set the notification tone.
- Change chat backgrounds:
Go to Google and download the desired background images, then open WhatsApp. From there, go to the Wallpaper option and set the desired background.
- Use classic MNS Messenger emojis:
Download the Sticker Studio application on your mobile phone and grant the necessary permissions. Then, open Google Chrome and go to the official Wistickers page. Afterward, select the ‘Add to WhatsApp’ button, and from there, you can use the classic MSN Messenger emojis as stickers.
