Top Tip - Speak to your phone and it will type the text for you
If you are not that good at typing and want to avoid spelling mistakes and want to answer messages more quickly here is my handy tip.
Click on the keyboard on the bottom right and then choose the option 'google voice typing' then speak into the phone, when you have finished press send.
I find this really helpful when I am writing my film reviews as I can speak into it then cut and paste from whatsapp web straight into a thread.
It is also handy for chatrooms and when you have a lot to say to someone via text.
