We use WhatsApp every day to stay connected with our friends, family, and loved ones anytime and anywhere. With WhatsApp, you get free and secure messaging on your mobile phone.

WhatsApp is the first thing people check after getting up in the morning and is the last thing people check on before going to bed.

Do you agree with me?

WhatsApp is our everyday thing.

Applications like Evernote, Microsoft Onenote, Simplenote, Trello, Google Keep, Zoho Notebook and many others are amazing note-taking applications on App Store and Play Store. They have advanced features which businesses use. You can use this application to take notes.

Everyone knows how useful these applications are, but not everyone uses them daily. People need a simple note-taking app which is easy to use.

If I share my experience, I find many apps and services fascinating for their features and functions. But when I write a note or save something important note to recheck, it becomes hard to keep track of it.

I need a simple Notepad, which is compatible with any type of data and I can access and store my notes easily

WhatsApp solves all the problems in this situation. WhatsApp got popular because of its simplicity. I’m using WhatsApp for taking notes for past eight months and it works very well. Follow these simple 6 steps to make WhatsApp as your Notepad.

6 Steps to use WhatsApp as a Notepad:

Step #1 Open WhatsApp:

Here, I assume that you already have WhatsApp Account and WhatsApp is installed on your device.

Now, Open it.

Step #2 Create a WhatsApp Group:


Create a new WhatsApp group. In case if you don’t know how to create one. Follow the Instructions,
  • Tap on Options (three dots)
  • Tap on New Group

Step #3 Add Someone:

Add anyone from your contact list for that group.
To create A WhatsApp group it requires at least two people. He/she can be your friend, family member, colleague or anyone.
As you can see in the screenshot, I’ve added my Mother for creating a group.

Step #4 Name the Group:

Name the group as Notepad, Work, Notes or anything you like. It’s your personal choice.
I’ve named it as Notepad.

Step #5 Remove that person:

This Notepad is our personal space. So, remove that person from the group which you’ve added before. (Inform that person before removing) 

P.S Sorry mom.

Step #6 Pin it to the Top:

How to properly use this WhatsApp Group:

You have to use this group for Notepad applications. It can also serve as a clipboard. Whenever you want to save some valuable content or link you want to later read or type any personalized wishes for festivals, this is a great place to type on. and just not this, you can save any format like- text, image, video, documents or links. Just put that data in this Notepad.

For instance, my friend shared a document on GST in one of my WhatsApp group. At that time I was busy with some other work, but I want to see that document. So, what I did, I forwarded that document in my group, Notepad. Now, I don’t need to find that one document in that group, which is super active.

Like this, I keep my important data in one place.

I even use it to make notes which serve as a small reminder to me.
