New WhatsApp Features
WhatsApp has added as many as five updates within a span of 24 hours. The latest features will be visible on version no. v2.12.194..
The WhatsApp for Android update brings custom notifications settings for individual contacts or groups. The new setting can be found in a contact’s or group’s detail page just below the media box.
Mark as Unread
With the upcoming 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.
Mark as Unread option: You can now mark conversations as unread so as to give you a visual reminder in case you want to respond to your contacts later. Long pressing the conversation will pull up a menu showing you the ‘Mark as Unread‘ option below the archive chat, delete chat, email chat options.
WhatsApp is 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.
Similarly, you can set notification light colours, separate call and message ringtones, enable or disable vibrations and pop-up notifications for each contact.
Mute individual contacts.
