Latest Whatsapp Features
Mark Messages unread
Have you ever been around, read a thread and then completely forgot to reply? We do this all the time. There is a way to mark important chats with a period to remind you to come back.
iOS: cat> swipe left to right> mark unread.
Android: Long press chat> Open menu> Mark as unread.
Important Message Bookmark
Some messages are more important than others. Whether it’s an appointment to remember or a good restaurant recommended. You can bookmark these messages and find them all easily in the Followed Messages section.
iOS: Chat> Specific chat> Specific message> Double tap or hold and press star.
Android: Chat> Specific chat> Specific message> Hold and press star.
How long one ignored you?
There is nothing more annoying than seeing those blue check marks appear unanswered right after. If you want to torture yourself a little more and find out when your message was read and how long it was ignored, you can. However, we don’t recommend it.
iOS: Chat> Specific chat> Specific message> Swipe from right to left.
Android: Chat> Specific chat> Specific message> Press and hold> Press the ‘i’ information icon at the top.
There may be some contacts you want to know right away if they are calling or texting you. To make sure they don’t confuse the crowd, you can change their specific alert tones to identify when someone sends you a message or when WhatsApp calls you.
iOS and Android: Chat> Specific chat> tap the contact name above> Custom tone.
The new feature of the WA is that you can make Whatsapp groups calls with More than 4 peoples at the same time. Also the new Themes added into the group features.
