Augmented Reality (AR) filters are quite successful on the network, and are getting more and more detailed and real. In 3D, with all dimensions of height and depth revealed by shadow effects, filters can be an option for playing tricks on friends and family, since they have very convincing scales and details.
In 2019, the «Sasha Dog» effect became famous on instagram, and many users were won over by the AR filter of the caramel pooch. In addition to it, in recent days, Google’s 3D animals have become very popular, when Twitter users discovered the new feature that allows them to view animals in AR from searches performed by Google. It is still possible to take photos and bring them to your environment using the option «See in your space», which makes everything even more fun.
2. Change group name and photo
WhatsApp groups are also good options for playing pranks on friends, and by changing the names of the groups you can make them look like others, or even a private conversation. To «scare» a friend, you can change the name of the groups so they get confused and send messages to different people.
3. Print fake conversation

Some apps mimic the WhatsApp template by creating fake conversations to be sent to friends, as is the case with the WhatsJoke app. The application simulates a conversation in the messenger, and allows you to create the dialogs and add a profile picture, name and status that will be shown, in addition to selecting whether the message box will appear as received, viewed or sent.
It is necessary to be very careful with this type of joke, because the messages delivered and received are false, but they seem to be true. The app perfectly mimics the background screen and message balloons on WhatsApp and, therefore, can cause discomfort among the people involved.
4. Submit stickers and GIFs that don’t load

The stickers became a fever as soon as they were made available on WhatsApp, and many users started to include them in their day-to-day conversations in private and in groups. A joke option to send to friends are the stickers that never carry, or those with a «GIF» stamp that never rotate. This will make them think that the stickers do not carry because of the Internet signal, which is not true.
5. Send blank message

Another prank option to play with friends is to send a blank message to them on WhatsApp. Copy «⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀» (without quotes), paste in a conversation and send it to colleagues. You will make your friends curious, wondering what you wrote. But the truth is that no written message will appear to them, and only a blank balloon will be sent.
