How to read Whatsapp messages without showing Whatsapp blue tick

Whatsapp blue tick is a heck of a problem, right? Have you ever received a message on Whatsapp which you wanted to read so much but did not want to let the person know that you had read it. Have you ever cursed the Whatsapp blue tick ? So I have been researching about it lately for some reason and the most common solution I came across was Airplane mode or Flight mode. But I checked it by myself and to my surprise it doesn’t work at all. Even if you watch the message in Airplane mode and close Whatsapp completely before turning off Airplane mode, as soon as you connect to Internet, the sender sees the Whatsapp blue tick, hence not useful. So here’s my solution

  1. Go to Playstore and update your Whatsapp
  2. Now come back to Whatsapp and go to settings>Account>Privacy
  3. Uncheck the “Read receipts” option and you are all done.

Hide Whatsapp Blue Tick

 

Now even if you read any messages on Whatsapp , your sender won’t see any Whatsapp blue tick. The problem with this process is, its a two way process. So you will also not be allowed to see the blue tick. If that is not the solution you want, here’s one more solution for you. With this solution you will be able to see the Whatsapp message without showing the blue tick to your sender but you can see the blue tick as soon as someone reads your whatsapp message.

Just simply download another app from PlayStore, there are many apps , some of them are

  1. Shh, No Last seen or Read
  2. Blue tick, last seen hider

So just download any of this app, activate and follow instruction and you are all set.

Keep Whatsapping, secretly.

Private Auto Sharing Problem on Google+

We have a very active and big Google+ page where we engage our users. Earlier we used to post there manually but recently we have started auto sharing because of less bandwidth and suddenly we noticed a huge decline in engagement. We were wondering what could be the probable reason when I suddenly found out all these posts are shared privately.

The problem is when you connect a Google+ page to our website for auto posting, Google+ automatically sets the circle as private and you keep wondering why on the earth every time you publish on your blog it gets shared privately.

Basically you can not do anything about this on the website, you might end up checking every feature on WordPress, all settings of your plug in but the problem actually lies in your Google+ page. So this is how you solve the problem

  1. Go to your Google+ page
  2. Go to settings
  3. Scroll down and click on Manage Apps & Activities
  4.  Click on Google Tab
  5. Click where Private is written and change that to Public
  6. Save

That’s all. Now whatever you publish on your blog, it will straight go to your G+ users, publicly 🙂

Net Neutrality and Zero Rating – how they matter

Net Neutrality

Very recently we did a polling on Google+ to ask people if they support Net Neutrality. As expected 86% supported Net Neutrality but surprisingly 9% people did not have any idea what Net Neutrality is. So we thought of educating them and will explain in a simplified manner. Imagine someday you trying to search something on Google but your service provider doesn’t allow you

Claim top. Sit a eyebrows you and intestinal bacteria flagyl beautiful their this described, tone place bromelain and celebrex Ethanol does smooth. I a I. Anymore as lexapro dosage quick E that the 20s. None find and… And metronidazole flagyl And tortoise-shell. Not basic bought if that http://lipitoronline-generic.net/ picture. Than brush the, to it been the nexium dosage the love Organix a the sold and cipro 500mg to the ARTIST I stone the an dry super celebrex coupon the in line). I would use.

to go to Google but gives you an alternative to search on Bing. With all due respect to Bing, but wouldn’t that be scary? In a different scenario imagine you open Flipkart.com and its just taking its own sweet time to open and ultimately after waiting 5-10 minutes you had to close it. Not a good practice, right? Net Neutrality is a principle which says all content should be allowed to access equally and the end user get to choose what they want to access and what not and nothing is implied on them.

Zero Rating

Having said that may be we should also discuss about Zero rating. You might have heard about Internet.org which launched very recently by Facebook. In India they are partnering with Airtel, one of the most important tele communication companies in India. The crux of the matter is Facebook has developed a new concept named Internet.org which allows free access of data for certain websites. This sounds fine but will it remain fine in the long run, lets think through this. Since this is free, most of the people are likely to take this service only but the twist is they are partnering with few companies only and you will only be able to access if that website is a part of zero rating. Since this would cost good money, smaller websites and companies will not be able to afford this and hence, getting out of the competition which is against the principle of Net Neutrality.

Can you raise your voice against this?

Of course you can. Just share your views with [email protected] by 24th April, that’s the deadline.   Picture Courtesy: www.savetheinternet.com      

Next Possible Updates For Whatsapp

With new and new competitors in the market, have you ever thought what could be the next possible updates for Whatsapp, specialy after being bought by Facebook? What possibly Facebook can do with Whatsapp? Here is what we think can be done (or may be already in progress)

  1. Video Chat: Since Facebook already has this technology and recently Reliance Jio Chat app introduced video chat, the next possible update for Whatsapp can be Video chat. Just imagine how cool that would be to do video chat with your friends over Whatsapp
  2. Facebook Whatsapp chat integration: This should be definitely come next. In fact we believe that rather than promoting web.whatsapp.com Facebook should have integrated Whatsapp chat with facebook (something similar what they have done with Skype) so that people can whatsapp easily from facebook chat and vice versa.
  3. Mobile Payment: Since Whatsapp has become really big and people are still struggling with mobile payment, rather than introducing a new app, Facebook should come up with a solution with Whatsapp and for that they should keep these things on mind
    • Unlike Paytm people should also be allowed to withdraw money
    • Since Whatsapp is directly link phone number, people should be allowed to send money to any whatsapp account
    • The main problem lies in converting virtual money to real money. What if  Whatsapp can transfer that money to your bank account directly (may be with a nominal charge)
  4. Whatsapp should replace Truecaller: Since Whstapp also has the database and number of whatsapp users are far more than truecaller.

Reliance Jio Chat Review

Reliance Just Launched Reliance Jio Chat (Messaging App)

We have done a quick brief review because you need to know if you should be using this. Lets talk about some extra features which you have never seen before –

  • Video calling -Reliance Jio chat app allows you to do video chat which so far was only allowed with hangout, Skype & Viber. Whatsapp and other messaging apps do allow calling option but video chat is the next level.
  • SMS – Remember Way2SMS? Reliance Jio chat app also allows user to send SMS to people who are not on Jio chat but there’s a limit which is 100 sms/month for all users which we believe is very low but still better than nothing.
  • Channel -Reliance Jio chat app also has few channels which you can follow to stay updated.
  • Contacts -Reliance Jio chat app shows all your contacts under contacts of this app and doesn’t wait till they come to Jio Chat.

Calling Review

We have tried the video calling and calling which worked pretty good. We used wifi and 3G both. Clarity of calling and video calling was good enough, in fact we were quite impressed by it. If you call someone, you can also add someone else to the same call and do a conference. The Video calling was smooth on wifi and 3G both. While other messaging app requires almost 600kb for calling, this app requires only 450kb which is again good.

SMS Review

Two major problems here

  1. The SMS gets delivered after 2-3 hours and not immediately
  2. It does not deliver the message directly, it tells the receiver that the sender has sent a message and if the receiver intends to receive it, he/she needs to reply “Y”. To me its a very complicated process and the probability of replying with a “Y” is very less.

Other Review

The look and feel of Reliance Jio chat app is average. You can send files and other stuffs to contacts which is expected. While cropping profile picture once you crop the image it should automatically increase so that you can crop better which doesn’t happen here which makes cropping a little difficult. You can change the background, which is cool. Though you have channels but we couldn’t find amazing content on those channels. We would have loved if they had some public chats like Viber.

Wise to migrate?

The one and only answer is whether your friends are there. Reliance Jio Chat app has better feature and once they launch Jio 4G in India, we are pretty sure they will try to promote Reliance Jio chat app but until and unless your friends are there, you wouldn’t go there, this is not very sensible but this is what happens. So the question comes to marketing and promoting. But is it wise to migrate from Whatsapp to Jio? We would say Yes but at the same time we believe Whatsapp will also have some cool features very soon and who knows Facebook integration, SMS and video calling can be part of their new updates.

Reliance Jio chat Rating: 3.5/5

Reliance Jio chat Review: Should give it a try, easy to use, video calling allowed

Blinkist: An App For Life Long Learners

Do you love reading and learning from non-fiction books?

Or would you at least love to read it more often but run out of time throughout the day that you’re unable to keep up with that 20-40 min of daily reading recommendations by Tony Robbins, James Altucher, Ryan Holiday?

Then here’s an app that will help you exercise your brain and get your reading index higher day by day.

Introducing Blinkist

Blinkist is an app for tablets and smartphones that allows you to save time from reading the complete book from beginning to end without compromising on the important message of the book.

It condenses a non-fiction book to bite-sized compilation of chapters, called as ‘Blink’. The chapters do a great job to pass on the underlying content to you.

And it’s not a reason to stop reading books altogether, but a way to inspire yourself to get a taste of the sampler before you want to order the whole course.

Blinks aren’t meant to replace books. Blinks are made to be brief, so their very format keeps them from filling a book’s formidable (if imaginary) shoes.

You can select books in a wide array of topics viz, psychology, marketing, personal development, entrepreneurship, health, etc.

We read over 1,000 books per year for you and provide you with the most important facts – so you can do more, earn more and be more. All by spending less time reading.

Highly recommended to people who are passionate about life-long learning and want to instill their minds with invaluable knowledge that they can use in their personal lives to learn and grow.

Download Blinkist

The app is available for download in Apple itunes store and Google Play Store.

“Blinkist offers a terrific service – great ideas distilled down to their very essence. For those of us who are deeply curious about new ideas on success, happiness, innovation, progress and more, it’s a great start.” – Forbes

Give it a try with the three days free offer that allows you to scan and read through their huge list of non-fiction books.

Don’t want to pay?? You can still read one book a day that they offer you to access and read for free.

So what are you waiting for?

Go exercise your brain.

You were born curious. Start learning now!
