Schedule a WhatsApp Message: Download WhatsApp Message Scheduler Lite from the PlayStore. Open the app and it will ask permission for superuser access (this app works only on a rooted android smartphone). Once permission has been granted it automatically proceeds to the app. It has two icons at the bottom by which you can toggle between the pending and sent messages.
Write the message you wish to deliver. Then fix the date and time for the scheduled message. You have now scheduled the message. All your scheduled messages can be found in the pending messages.
Change Phone Number Linked With WhatsApp: Bought a new sim card? Want to change your old number associated with WhatsApp without losing access to the groups you had joined? Here’s how you can do it. Go to Settings -> Account -> Change Number -> Type both your old and new phone number and hit ‘Done’.

Recover Deleted Messages: Recovering deleting messages on WhatsApp after you’ve deleted it from within the app is possible without any additional recovery software. This is one of the smart WhatsApp tricks that not everyone is aware of. WhatsApp by default stores all your conversations and activity on your SD card.
Go to SD card -> WhatsApp -> Databases and look for two files named – msgstore-yyyy-mm-dd.1.db.crypt5 and msgtore.db.crypt. The first file contains all the messages you’ve sent or received in the last seven days while the second file contains all messages sent or received on that day.
To restore your WhatsApp messages, rename msgtore.db.crypt to OLDmsgtore.db.crypt or something to identify the old backup easily, so in case if something goes wrong, you can try again. Select the database you wish to restore from the files left and rename it to msgtore.db.crypt. Uninstall and re-install WhatsApp and when prompted choose Restore.
