WhatsApp: so you can check your new messages without having to open the application

Although WhatsApp is the most used messaging application in the world, most users are unaware of the tricks it hides. One of them just went viral in the social networks since it allows you to see your messages without having to enter the platform. Do you want to know how?

To put this trick into practice, it is necessary to have the latest version of WhatsApp installed on your smartphone. As it is not a method compatible with the iPhone your phone must be Android. If you meet this single requirement, you will have to follow these simple steps:

1. Enter Play Store and make sure you have the latest version of WhatsApp.

2. Once you have updated the application, go to the main screen of the phone.

3. Enter the screen settings by pressing an empty part for a few seconds or making a pinch gesture.

4. Select the option Widgets

5. All the widgets that are available on your phone will appear.

6. You should look for a squared one that has WhatsApp as its title.

7. Finally, press it and without releasing drag it towards your screen.

That would be all. We recommend that you place this widget on an empty screen, since that way you will be able to enlarge its size to the maximum and see many more messages.

All WhatsApp messages that come to you, whether from groups or personal, will appear in this widget and you will be able to review them without having to enter the platform.
