WhatsApp has just released a new update for Android smartphones that brings a bunch
of new features for the popular app.
For those of you who are willing to wait for the next major update, we give you a
rundown of the 5 new WhatsApp features you can look forward to.
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.
Custom notifications
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.
Mute individual contacts
At present, you can only mute group conversations, but with the next update you will be
able to mute individual contacts as well.
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.
Lower data consumption in WhatsApp calls
If you make a lot of WhatsApp calls and want to reduce your data consumption,
WhatsApp has added a new option in the app for that purpose.
Under Chats and Calls menu in Settings, you will notice a new option called Low Data
Usage at the bottom of the scroll.
Just click the box and you will be able to save some data while making voice calls using
WhatsApp.
Google Drive integration
This feature is not live yet, but has been rumoured for a long time. Now, this upcoming
update brings another proof that WhatsApp chats will soon be backed to your Google
accounts.
If you want to check it out yourself, go to the Account option in Settings and you will see
that the Network Usage menu mentions two new details about your data consumption:
Google Drive backup bytes sent, and Google Drive backup bytes received.
