WhatsApp is preparing to welcome a new feature, small but useful, that will make it even more immediate to mark a message as read. As usual, a new beta version of the application examined by Wabetainfo suggests it, namely version 2.18.214 presents the “Mark as Read” shortcut in the notification center.
The function is not yet active, but the advantage can already be determined: the user does not necessarily have to open the application to mark the message as read, but can do so through the notification center by selecting the appropriate option.
Mute a chat also from the Notification Center
The source also refers to a second new feature that will be released soon, but does not document it with screenshots, which is the ability to mute a chat through the notification center, which, of course, wants to be improved by the development team to speed up access to a greater number of options in the application.
It is not yet possible to determine when these two features will be part of the standard WhatsApp stable release team. The time depends, as always, on the results of the test phase.
