When we download an application either from Google Play or the App Store, the first thing we do is investigate what its functions are and the simpler it is to use, the better for us. This is the case of WhatsApp Web, an instant messaging application that hides many keyboard shortcuts and that works on both Windows and Mac servers. Save time and apply all the combinations that we will teach you in the next note.

It is a fact that the web version of WhatsApp it is not as complete as Telegram’s; However, the Facebook-owned company continues to be the undisputed leader in providing instant messaging services, which has more than two billion users worldwide.

The twelve shortcuts that we will show you below are available in the desktop version as well as in the browser version (Google Chrome) of WhatsApp Web. With these simple commands you will learn how to quickly delete a chat, silence a conversation, open a new chat, etc.

It is important to clarify that the keyboards are different depending on the servers or operating systems, for example: in Windows we use the “ALT” key while in Mac we find the CMD.
