When switching between slack and Whatsapp, @rheaditi and I have found ourselves trying to use slack hotkeys to do things on Whatsapp Web way too often.
Introducing refined-whatsapp, a chrome extension that we built for ourselves and others like us. This extension adds:
- ⚡️ Hotkeys:
- Start a new chat with: "Cmd/Ctrl + K"
- Temporarily hide current chat with: "Cmd/Ctrl + L"
- Show/hide the Chats Sidebar with: "Cmd/Ctrl + \"
- Search through messages with: "Ctrl + Space"
- View chat info with: "Cmd/Ctrl + I"
- 🌚 Dark mode for Whatsapp™ Web!
The extension is available to download on the Chrome Web Store.
Check out our twitter post, which has a video 🎬 to see these hotkeys in action!
