I have written another article where I explained how you can send messages from your lock screen in Android even if your phone is locked. Now we will get to the point where we want to know what are the new WhatsApp features that has been added into the Android version of the application. Even though the update has not been pushed to the Google Play Store, you can still download it from the company’s website and check out the new features.
New WhatsApp features (Available for Android, iOS and Windows coming soon)
New Feature 1: Mark As Unread:-
With the upcoming WhatsApp update, Android users will soon be able to mark messages as unread even after reading them. To be clear, this feature does not make it appear as if you have not read the message yet, and your messages will appear as read to senders even after you mark them as unread. Eh! that’s again something we might not want but expect to have this feature in the near future. Instead, it can be used to highlight messages so you can get back to them later. Also, marking a message as unread will not change the order of conversations on the app.
New Feature 2: Custom Notifications:-
New WhatsApp features are bringing its whole set of custom options, which are available only for the whole app at present, for individual contacts. For example, if you want to set a specific ringtone for a contact, you can select any song from your playlist, so you know the messages and calls are from that particular person even without looking at your smartphone. 🙂 Now that is great@ Is not it! I know.
New Feature 3: Mute Individual Contacts:-
At present, in the current version of WhatsApp you can only mute group conversations, but with the next update you will be able to mute individual contacts as well which is great. If you want to mute any person on your contact list, check the Mute bar in the About menu. Slide the Mute bar to the right and you will see duration for which you can mute the chat: 8 hours, a week, or a year.
