WhatsApp users can easily send a bunch of messages without even typing them on the messaging app – all thanks to digital assistants. You just need to ask the virtual assistant to send a WhatsApp and then your work will be done.


While Android smartphone users can use Google Assistant to send messages, iOS users can send WhatsApp messages using Siri. This is a convenient way of sending messages when you are busy or not in a position to type a message, but still, need to send a message.

One can even ask the digital assistants to read out messages for you, but the virtual assistant will ask for certain permission, which you will have to provide if you want the assistant to do your work. You will have to give access to your phone’s notifications.

For this, Google will display a message, which says “to hear your messages, calendar events, and other important info, give the Google app access to your notifications.” Don’t worry, you can always change this in the settings. All you need to do is go to the Notification section in the settings and disable notification access for Google.
Now, if you want to send messages on WhatsApp without typing, then keep reading to know more about how you can send messages with the help of Google Assistant.

WhatsApp: How to send messages without typing

Step 1: First, you need to install the Google Assistant app on your smartphone if you are not able to summon it by just saying “Hey Google” or “Okay Google.” On your Android phone or tablet, you can also touch and hold the Home button to activate Google Assistant.

Step 2: Once you install it, tap on the “Open” button and say “Hey Google.”

Step 3: After that, the digital assistant will respond to you. You can then say “Send a WhatsApp message to XXXX (name).” You will have to mention the name of the contact you want to send a message to.

Step 4: Google Assistant will then ask you about what should be mentioned in the message.

Step 5: The virtual assistant will then type and show the message. The assistant will say the message is ready to send. So after that, you just need to say “Okay, send it.” Your message will then be delivered. The second time, the assistant might directly send the message.

WhatsApp has finally added the disappearing photos feature to the stable version of the app. The feature is known as ‘View Once’ and is similar to how Instagram’s expiring media feature works. When you send a photo using this feature, then it will disappear once the receiver opens it and leaves the chat. But, you will have to select View Once media each time you want to send a view once photo or video. Keep reading to know more.

What you should know about the new WhatsApp feature?
WhatsApp has confirmed that any photo or video you send using the ‘View Once’ feature will not be saved to the recipient’s Photos or Gallery. Once you send a View Once photo or video, WhatsApp won’t be able to show it again.

The messaging app won’t allow you to forward, save, star, or share photos or videos that were sent or received with View Once media feature. You can only see if a recipient has opened a View Once photo or video if they have read receipts turned on.

The Facebook-owned company also says that if you don’t open the photo or video within 14 days of it being sent, the media will expire from the chat. However, one will be able to restore the ‘View once media’ from backup if the message remains unread at the time of backup. If the photo or video has already been opened, the media will not be included in the backup and can’t be restored.


Why you should send media using ‘View Once’ feature to ‘trusted’ users?
WhatsApp allows anyone to take a screenshot or screen recording of the media before it disappears. Additionally, the individual won’t get notified if someone takes a screenshot or screen recording.
WhatsApp also warns that one can even take a photo or video of the media with a camera or other device before it disappears. The company says “Encrypted media may be stored for a few weeks on WhatsApp’s servers after you’ve sent it.”


How to send View Once media on WhatsApp?

Step 1: Open WhatsApp and tap on the attachment icon.

Step 2: Then, go to Gallery and select the photo or video you want to send to your contact.

Step 3: After selecting it, you will see a clock-like icon in the ‘Add a caption’ bar, just tap on it to enable the View Once feature. Once you enable it, the app will show a message saying “Photo set to View Once.” You can then send disappearing photos to your friends and family members.

WhatsApp: How to read deleted messages easily
WhatsApp: Here's how you can easily read deleted messages and even retrieve deleted media files.

WhatsApp, WhatsApp deleted messages, read deleted messages ,


Here's how you can read messages including media files even after they are deleted by the sender. (Express Photo)
WhatsApp’s deleting feature has enabled sent messages to be deleted from the sender’s device as long as the message is not more than 60 minutes long. However as handy as the feature is, there are workarounds by which a receiver can still see messages that have been deleted. Today, we’ll be showing you one such workaround that works via an app called WAMR: Recover Deleted Messages & Status download
The app lets you recover messages that a sender may have deleted before you read it, as well as download status updates from WhatsApp. Here’s how the app works, and how you can start using it to recover deleted messages.

How to use WAMR
To install the app, download it from the Google Play Store and set it up. You will have to select the apps you want the tool to capture notifications from, like WhatsApp, Telegram and Instagram. Once that is done, the app will ask you for number of permissions for capturing notifications.

WhatsApp, WhatsApp deleted messages, read deleted messages ,


Check out how the WAMR app works to capture and display deleted messages. (Express Photo)
Once it is all set up, you will be able to find all incoming notifications, including deleted ones inside WAMR’s interface. If you have auto-download on for media files, the app will be able to retrieve those for you too. Once WAMR begins capturing, any deleted message can be seen in the app’s interface, categorized by individual chat windows, just like WhatsApp’s main screen.

How the app works
To display deleted messages, WAMR requires access to your notifications. Granting notification access allows the app to recover deleted messages without trying to log in to your WhatsApp account, risking a ban on the account itself.

Once you have granted notification access, the app is able to basically keep an eye out for incoming notifications, and anything once sent to your phone via WhatsApp is captured. Once captured, even if something is deleted from the sender, the app uses its cached data to show you deleted messages.

WAMR is also able to store deleted media files including photos which will still be visible once the sender has deleted them. However, this feature requires automatic media download to be turned ‘On’ on your device. Note that because it works by capturing incoming notifications on your phone, WAMR will not be able to capture messages for which you do not get notified. This includes and individual or group chats that you have muted on WhatsApp. The app will hence, also not be able to retrieve any deleted messages from before its installation.

WhatsApp banned 2mn Indian accounts during May 15-Jun 15
Source: PTI - Edited By: Hemant Waje

Last updated on: July 15, 2021 23:52 IST


WhatsApp banned two million Indian accounts while it received 345 grievance reports between May 15 and June 15, the company said in its maiden monthly compliance report as mandated by the IT rules.



The new IT rules require large digital platforms -- with over five million users -- to publish compliance reports every month, mentioning the details of complaints received and action taken.
"Our top focus is preventing accounts from sending harmful or unwanted messages at scale. We maintain advanced capabilities to identify these accounts sending a high or abnormal rate of messages and banned two million accounts in India alone from May 15-June 15 attempting this kind of abuse," WhatsApp said on Thursday.



WhatsApp clarified that more than 95 per cent of such bans are due to the unauthorised use of automated or bulk messaging (spam).
"We expect to publish subsequent editions of the report 30-45 days after the reporting period to allow sufficient time for data collection and validation," WhatsApp said in the report.

The Facebook-owned company explained that the number of accounts banned have risen significantly since 2019 as the sophistication of systems has increased, and "so we are catching more accounts even as we believe there are more attempts to send bulk or automated messages".
The vast majority of these accounts are banned proactively, without relying on any user reports, it added.
About eight million accounts are banned/disabled globally on an average per month.
WhatsApp said besides the behavioural signals from accounts, it relies on available "unencrypted information" including user reports, profile photos, group photos and descriptions as well as advanced AI tools and resources to detect and prevent abuse on its platform.
In the report, WhatsApp said it had received 345 reports in total, cutting across categories such as ban appeal, account support, product support, safety issues and others.
Against this, 63 accounts were "actioned" by WhatsApp during May 15-June 15, 2021.
WhatsApp said user reports received by the platform via the grievance channel/s are evaluated and responded to.
Majority of users who reach out to WhatsApp are either aiming to have their account restored following an action to ban them or reaching out for product or account support, it added.
'Accounts Actioned' denotes reports where WhatsApp took remedial action based on the report. Taking action denotes either banning an account or a previously banned account being restored as a result of the complaint.
The IT rules -- which came into effect on May 26 -- mandate that significant digital platforms include the number of specific communication links or parts of information they proactively remove by using automated tools.
Other platforms like Google, Koo and Twitter have already submitted their compliance reports. Instagram and Facebook have also submitted their reports.
The IT rules have been designed to prevent abuse and misuse of digital platforms, and offer users a robust forum for grievance redressal.
Under these rules, social media companies will have to take down flagged content within 36 hours, and remove within 24 hours content that is flagged for nudity and pornography.

The rules also mandate appointment of three key personnel -- grievance officer, chief compliance officer and nodal officer. These officials need to be residents in India. Non-compliance with the IT rules would result in these platforms losing their intermediary status that provides them immunity from liabilities over any third-party data hosted by them.

WhatsApp in its User Safety Monthly Report has stated that more than 95 percent of bans in India are due to the unauthorized use of automated or bulk messaging.

WhatsApp has released its second “User Safety Monthly Report,” where it has claimed to ban over three million Indian accounts during a 46 day period from June 16 to July 31. The company claims to have banned these accounts in the interest of preventing online abuse and keeping WhatsApp users safe. The banned accounts include accounts actioned through the company’s own prevention and detection methods, and via user reports or grievances received by it.

WhatsApp states that its top focus is to prevent accounts from sending automated bulk spam at scale. Apart from behavioural signals, the company has also relied on unencrypted information like user reports, profile photos, and group photos and descriptions, besides deploying advanced AI tools and resources to detect and prevent abuse on the platform.

The company has stated that more than 95 percent of bans in India are due to the unauthorized use of automated or bulk messaging. It adds that the majority of the requests from users are either aiming to have their account restored following an action to ban them or reaching out for product or account support. It identifies an Indian account via a +91 phone number.

The company states to have received a total of 594 grievances from users during the period relating to various issues such as ban appeal, product support, account support, safety support. Out of which, it took remedial action in 74 instances (73 were ban appeals).
“We are particularly focused on prevention because we believe it is much better to stop harmful activity from happening in the first place than to detect it after harm has occurred,” the company said in a public statement. “abuse detection operates at three stages of an account’s lifecycle: at registration, during messaging, and in response to negative feedback, which it receives in the form of user reports and blocks,” it added.
