I am writing to share a few tricks that I have found to enable the following functions in Whatsapp:
- Video calls
- Group's invite links
- Multiple contacts selection when sharing something
- Mentions in groups
- Two steps authentication in Whatsapp Web.
First of all you need the latest version of WhatsApp Beta (for example, I use the 2.16.224) and a root explorer.
You have to open the root explorer and edit the file com.whatsapp_preferences.xml inside /data/data/com.whatsapp/shared_prefs/.
You need to add the followings lines in the end of file, just above the </map> tag:
<boolean name="group_invites" value="true" /> <boolean name="multicast" value="true" /> <boolean name="video_calling" value="true" /> <boolean name="two_factor_auth" value="true" /> <boolean name="user" value="true" />
I hope this guide has been helpful, and I apologize for my bad English (I'm Italian).
PS: Currently you can only unlock the graphics of video calls, because the servers to which they connect are still down.
