WhatsApp functions when you press and hold its icon


The first of these, and perhaps the most important, is that WhatsApp creates a shortcut of the three contacts you interact with the most in the application. In this way, if you have pending messages to read or you want to send them one, you just have to press and hold the icon, select that contact and the conversation will automatically open.

Usually your favorite contact is in this small list, which you can add to your main menu. All you have to do is press and hold on its name, move it on your screen and place it in your preferred place. An icon with your friend’s profile photo will have been created on the screen of your Android or iPhone, to communicate faster with him or her.

Camera access

Another tool that is activated by clicking on the WhatsApp icon is the application’s camera, with which you can take photos or select one from your gallery and send it to any of your contacts more easily.

Delete WhatsApp

Another hidden function is that through the WhatsApp icon, after pressing on it for a few seconds, it allows you to remove the application from your device. It is a more practical and faster method than going to all the applications and searching for WhatsApp.
