iMessage: So it works with invisible ink, fireworks and Co.




_apple iMessage has the iOS 10 receive -Update not only the possibility of app usage within the chats, but also comes with its own features that should theoretically work “out of the box”. If they do not for some users but or they are so well hidden that it does not come immediately. Thus, many are looking for confetti, transmitted forcefully messages or other gadgets that you can use that. The trick lies in the send button and possibly a setting that you have your long forgotten. You can apply the effects to any content that you sent normally via iMessage, so images, video or text.

Instead of triggering the sending by a tap on the send button, you hold the button just pressed. You will enter into the selection of effects and backgrounds. Effects relating to the content per se, backgrounds lie across the entire chat.


As effects are invisible ink, unobtrusive, and striking force available. Invisible ink obscures the text or image, only with a swipe on the chat bubble is the visible content. The other three bring a chat bubble with movement either visually softer or harder in the chat.

Would you like a different background, you must in effect selecting just the tab change. You will then see the balloon background. Facilities also stand confetti, lasers, fireworks and shooting star. This is achieved by wiping aside. You play as a full screen preview, you can see so immediately how the message is present in the chat. Schick made, even if probably not ever have the opportunity to do with laser beams on its message attentive without other to annoy it.

Under General РAccessibility can be found to reduce the point movement. If this is activated (which especially in long jährigeren iOS users often is the case, after all, the setting for a more fluid system on older devices makes), there is not the features. If you deactivate the reduced movements, you can also access the effects and backgrounds.

Bonus tip: stickers can be placed anywhere in chats. For this you type a sticker is not easy, and then sends him, but he is considered while selecting and then pull him on any Chat Bubbles or other stickers or pictures. So you can, for example, the pizza stickers of colleagues stick with a taco stickers if your content can not be bothered you during the lunch break on pizza.

And a bonus tip: Handwritten notes are not only possible via the scribble background. Turns your iPhone your cross, you can write on the complete display and then this manuscript – like provided with effects – send in the chat. The difference to scribble is that the background is white instead of black, looks often simply nicer out. The orientation lock must be disabled for this.
