A new beta version of WhatsApp has landed recently on Google Play. The update, which corresponds to version 2.18.214, does not seem to bring visible changes for users, althoughthey have discovered an interesting novelty, that although it is not available to everyone, it would soon reach the whole world.
The tool in question consists of a shortcut that will appear in the notification of each message received from WhatsApp, and that will allow the user mark it as read without having to access the application itself . However, this does not seem to be the only new feature WhatsApp is working on.
WhatsApp: mark messages as read without entering the conversations will be possible soon
As you can see in the image published by WABetaInfo , and extracted from the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android, in future editions of the app the “Mark as read” button will appear directly in the notification of each of the messages, thus allowing the user to mark it as read without having to enter the conversation.
Since WhatsApp still seems to be working on the development of this feature, at the moment it is not available to the public, and it is unknown when it will be implemented in the app. On the other hand, it has also been discovered that the messaging service belonging to Facebook will also include an option to Quickly mute a particular chat from the notifications panel.
Most likely, these features will begin to be available first in the beta version of the application , to which any person can sign up to receive the last functions before the rest. In case you want to do it, you just have to follow the steps we indicated in our article about
