How To Send Blank Message On WhatsApp

Making someone think that their phone is not working properly can be hilarious. This is true because many people depend a lot on their smartphone, and making someone think it’s malfunctioning can really freak them out.

App 1: Blank Messages

There is an app called Blank Message available on Play Store that I think you’ll like. It’s a very easy to use app, and even if you’re new to Android, you’ll have no problem using it. When you first open the app, you’re going to see an ad(at least I see it currently) which you can get rid of easily by pressing the back button.

Now, the app has options to send blank messages based on the number of Rows or Characters. Make your selection and choose the number of blank rows or characters.

After that, you can either tap on Send to directly open WhatsApp and send the message or select Clipboard to copy the empty message to your clipboard for sending it manually. Tapping on the Send will take you to your WhatsApp contact list. At the top, you will see your frequently contacted friends and at the bottom, everyone else.

Choose who you want to send the blank message to and then tap on the green button. After that, the WhatsApp chat of that contact will appear with the message having empty characters typed. The only thing you need to do once you’re there is, tap on the send button and the blank message will appear.

They will get the WhatsApp notification that you sent them a message but when they open it to see what you posted, they will only be able to see the last real message you sent them.

They will obviously put a confused face since they don’t understand how they can get a notification and all but no content. On your phone, you will see the time you sent it and the double check mark if delivered to them and blue ticks if they saw it provided they haven’t disabled read receipts.

That’s your way of knowing that they received and saw the blank message.

App 2: Blank Message For WhatsApp

There is another app on Play Store called Blank Message for WhatsApp that does the same thing. You find it here.

It follows the same steps, but it just has lesser options.  You only get the choice of having blank characters and no rows. Apart from that, there’s only Send option and no Copy like in the app mentioned above. That said, I didn’t experience any problems while using either app and I only had to close one ad the entire time.
