- 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:

Then save and force close Whatsapp from the list of applications on your phone and you are done: you unlocked the hidden features!
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.

I found that really cool
Can i make a flashable version of this?
Asking u coz i dnt want to 'steal' ur content
I'll give u proper credits in the thread

Sorting media by chat
When you send picture from gallery from WhatsApp there are also folders for every chat including only its own picture. Is It possible to apply this feature to the media folder so that, for example, if we want to delete all pictures and videos from a group we Can Just sort them by chat and Simply delete them?

Thanks for the tricks, I hope this thread continues to be updated. Here is the gif trick that I found that I didn't see in the orginal list. Though I'm now having trouble trying to get it to work properly.

Code:
<boolean name=”gif” value=”true” />

I found that its easier to use an app called 'WA Tweaks'. They update every time a new feature comes out and you don't have to change any files. Also you have to be on WA Beta for the hidden features.
