Now yes, then TechMarkup brings 6 uses of WhatsApp, and they are not chatting with a person:

1. A quick marker to know where the car was parked

As mentioned at the beginning, this is one of the most interesting uses that WhatsApp can offer. Basically, you have to send location when user parks car, so when you come back you just go into that conversation, open the location and you can find the route to the car using your navigation app (Google Maps, Apple Mapsetc.).

2. Always have important data at hand

The DNI of one or a loved one, reference data for payments, important addresses or telephone numbers that you do not want to have on the agenda. All this data could be had in the WhatsApp conversation with oneself.

It is also useful for professionally, being able to send any data or related file that you want to consult later, or that you want to keep forever.

3. Send files from cell phone to PC and vice versa

Of the many ways to send information from a smartphone to computer (and vice versa), WhatsApp is one of the most important.

Contacts, photos, videos, documents, texts and more. Everything that WhatsApp allows to send can be received in the other device. In the case of computers, there is login with whatsapp web.

4. Have a digital wallet for tickets to clubs, movies, theater, concerts and more

If this has never happened to any reader, then you don’t have to wait to live the experience of standing in front of an event where you have the tickets and you don’t know where they are stored.

This is the reason why WhatsApp can be so useful, since you can send documents containing entries for easy access at any time. Even a physical entrance can be scanned with a camera, where all the data and codes are seen correctly.

Having the vaccination card is also a very good idea.

5. A news feed to read later

On many occasions, users will come across a piece of news or an article that is of interest but it is not the time to read it.

In order not to lose track and continue reading when you have time, you can share the link to the WhatsApp group and access it later. If that’s also something you want to keep, you can always have it in this group.

6. Create voice reminders

How many times has a user had an idea and forgot about it because they didn’t have time to write it down? Well, the fastest way to write these ideas is with your voice, so a WhatsApp group with yourself can be used to record audio notes saying what’s on your mind.

In addition, it can also be useful to record certain conversations excuse me if they are of interest to both parties. This is applicable even in the professional field and can be useful for recording a meeting or an interview. Although TechMarkup insists on the importance of obtaining permission from other parties.
