Sometimes it is feasible that you need to use two or more different WhatsApp accounts on the same PC; For this, you can use the private browsing mode in your web browser to log into a different account than the one that was started in the normal browsing mode. You can also use another account from another web browser on your PC.

Tip 6: Avoid blue ticks

If you want to read the messages without the sender knowing it by means of the blue marks, the general method is to deactivate the read receipts of your WhatsApp smartphone application. But, for WhatsApp Web, there is another foolproof way to do the same.

  • In the WhatsApp web window, open the chat.
  • Open any window and adjust its size so that you can see any new messages that are sent in the background.
  • Now, click on this window and hold the cursor over it. This, for your PC, means that you work in the window and not in WhatsApp.
  • Any messages you receive in this chat will now be visible to you, but to the sender, only gray ticks will appear until they click on the WhatsApp web window.
  • This method allows you to view the messages of a single chat.


Tip 7: Use WAToolkit to preview the message

WAToolkit is the highest rated breadth for WhatsApp. Allows you to make permanent notifications. You can receive notifications from WhatsApp even when the WhatsApp tab is not open. At the same time, messages that are read through notifications do not send read acknowledgments. Another amazing feature is its wide text bubble that allows a full width of the chat panel for messages.


Tip 8: Use Zapp to manage volume and playback speed

Since WhatsApp Web does not allow calls, voice messages are becoming more and more frequent. Managing these voice messages is made much easier with the Zapp breadth.
