WhatsApp is the instant messaging application that is present on almost all devices in the world, due to its practical functions that facilitate communication between users.

If you are a lover of personalizing mobile devices and their applications, then keep reading because you will find a trick that will facilitate your access to the application owned by Meta.

WhatsApp login shortcut

Some WhatsApp users can create a shortcut to quickly enter the app with an external button that can be the one to turn the mobile device on and off.

The Android phones that have this feature are the Xiaomi and Samsung A52 models, as well as the Galaxy M, A, S and Z series.

How to access WhatsApp using the on and off button

  • The first step is to enter the “Configuration” or “Settings” section (this will depend on the mobile). Then, you will have to scroll to the bottom and tap on the “Advanced Features” option.
  • Now the next thing is to touch where it says “Side key ” and then activate the option “Press twice”.
  • You will see that two sections will be activated: a quick launch of the camera and an open application. You are going to select the last option by clicking on the gear icon.
  • Finally, all the applications that are installed on the cell phone will open and in this case, you will select WhatsApp and that’s it.

You just have to go to the home screen and double-tap the on and off button so that the mobile automatically takes you to the messaging application.
