Are you trying to avoid the social pressure on WhatsApp? We are going to show you a couple of tricks that will save your life. All you need to do is reply to messages while you appear offline. If you don’t know how to do that already, we are going to walk you through it, so have a seat and read below.
How to Reply WhatsApp Messages Appearing Offline
Use the notification bar
The first trick is to reply to messages via notifications. If you reply to a message directly through notification, you won’t appear online. A small tip, if you really want to avoid a convo, wait for a while before replying to a message even if you do it via notification. I guess it just has more logic this way.
You can do the same thing on your smartwatch. If you choose to respond to a message via a wearable device, you will appear offline. The cool thing about using a smartwatch to reply is that you can read the whole convo beforehand and still appear offline. Do note that the above info is for Android devices.
Turn off mobile data or WiFi
The second trick is to turn off your wifi or data. The next thing you have to do is go to the message you want to respond, write your reply, and press send. After you sent the text, close the WhatsApp. When you reactivate your wi-fi or mobile data, the message will be sent to that person without showing him/her you are online.
You can download the Unseen app to read messages while appearing offline. It also works on Telegram, Viber as well as Facebook Messenger. The app won’t allow you to reply, but at least you can keep track of the conversations you don’t want to participate in yet. I hope this was helpful.
