Tips on what to put in the Message Whatsapp
- If you are a Business and/or have a professional account
The “Message” feature can be very useful for WhatsApp Business or professional messenger accounts. Through it, it is possible to insert greetings or give notices such as “I am on vacation” and “We are open”. Another option is to add phrases that attract customers, such as the business slogan, or specify a rule to have greater control over calls, such as “We don’t hear voice messages!”. The space can be used in different ways – just think of short texts, suitable for communicating with the public.
Many users prefer to use ready-made phrases in the WhatsApp Message tab, such as quotes from famous authors. In this sense, some applications can be of great help to ensure more inspiration – such as Pinterest, a photo-sharing social network that has several references.
To find them, just search for simple terms, such as “phrases” or “quotes”, and choose one of the options presented. There are also apps for Android and iPhone (iOs) mobile phones that aim to bring together inspiring excerpts; an example is “Messages, Phrases and Status Ready”, which brings together a selection of short phrases to use on social networks.

- Search for phrases in music apps
Streaming apps like Spotify and Resso are also good sources of inspiration for customizing WhatsApp Message. Through them, it is possible to listen to music and, at the same time, visualize the lyrics, which can serve to find a creative option to put in the messenger.
In addition, the Google Play Store and the App Store also have apps that aim to collect snippets of songs, such as “Trechos e Frases de Músicas”. In some of them, the phrases are separated by artists or genres, such as “Pop”, “Rock” and “Samba”, a very useful feature for searching.

Emojis are a great option for when you don’t know what to write, as they help to express feelings and emotions. Faces are so used that they have become a “second language” on social media. Therefore, they can also be inserted in the “Message” tab of WhatsApp.
However, it is important to note that the icons can be interpreted in different ways by your contacts, so you need to pay attention to the meaning of each one before using them. To learn what each emoji used on WhatsApp means, head over to our guide.
