Because WhatsApp does not allow us to edit our contact information, the trick is to modify our mobile agenda. In other words, we established a classification system for contacts around keywords. Enough so that we can do a more specific search on WhatsApp without remembering the person's full name. As easy as adding a third last name to a contact: Fulanito García (Family), for example.
Create contact categories
The idea is for us to review our cell phone contact list. The agenda, go away. Here we have to go edit contact name of people we are interested in grouping or categorizing. For example, we can add parentheses after the name, without complicating our lives by completing other contact fields. Of course, you should remember these parentheses and use them in the same way for the entire group of people. You can do this with your family contact, add square brackets "(family)", or more specifically with terms like "cousin", "uncle", etc. Remember that the idea is to group them around keywords.
To do this, enter the terminal phonebook. Here you must search by the name of the contact in question. Then click on the three dots or the pencil icon to Edit Contact Information With this, you can change the person's name, number, or other information. As we said, the ideal is to add parentheses after the name. Enough for WhatsApp to recognize it.
This technique is also very practical with the league's work and contacts. Thanks to these square brackets, you can create categories like "call now", "important", "link" or others that will help you find and remember what you can do with it. Like this You won't waste time reviewing the conversation And your message should only be a little proactive and create this general category to apply to multiple contacts at once.
Use categories on WhatsApp
Now comes the practical. Surely you know research tool WhatsApp contact What you do not know is that, thanks to the categorization you have made from your calendar, you can now find it faster thanks to this function.
Just enter WhatsApp and click on the magnifying glass icon. Here you should enter keyword brackets You have added to the contact name. By typing a few letters of the word, WhatsApp will show you related results. In this way, the contact that "mentions" with that term will appear first. Available to start a conversation, video call or whatever is provided. And without the need to know his name.
