WhatsApp is the most popular communication application for users. And therefore, it is probably the most used app. We use it so frequently that any shortcut we have to access the app is useful. In this case, it is possible to access a conversation WhatsApp by means of the volume buttons of the mobile. How?
Accessing WhatsApp from the volume buttons
it’s possible access WhatsApp from the volume buttons, both to the application and through a direct access to a conversation in the application. For this we are going to use an application with which it is even possible to change the volume indicators. But we are going to forget about these functions to use only one of the functions of the app, which is not the main one, but which is useful. Is about the Sound HUD app. With this we can change the volume bar. But the truth is that we don’t want that, what we want is simply to use the app’s function with which we can modify the actions of the volume buttons.
Logically, the main action when pressing the button normally will be lower or raise the volume of the mobile. But we can select the action we want to be executed when performing a long press on the volume buttons.
Thus, we can select something as simple as configuring the volume down button so that when we keep it pressed it runs WhatsApp application. And then the volume up button can be used to launch a specific conversation, so we have a general option for the volume down button, and a much more specific action for the volume up button.
A great option for those who constantly use WhatsApp and they want to use the volume buttons to quickly access the functions of the messaging app.
