WhatsApp Features (Mark your conversation unread, Custom Notification, Mute Individual contact, Lower Data Consumption, Google Drive Integration)
WhatsApp have come up with these new features. This will surely make most of us happy as the features would surely help you in your day to day conversations.
- Mark your conversation unread: – As you would know as soon as you send any message it is marked as a single tick once it has been delivered to the recipient it is marked as double tick and once recipient has read it the double tick turns blue. If recipient have not read the message it is highlighted by a number on the right side with a green color. As soon as he reads it the highlight is cleared. Now this new feature would allow you guys to mark that message unread and keep it highlighted. There are 2 more things you need to understand. The sender would still be notified that you have read the message and the order of the message would stay in its original position. This is just for the reader’s reference to read the important message again.
- Custom Notification: – Now WhatsApp have given a custom notification option. Users can now set the ringtone of their choice for their individual caller. Plus there are many other features like enable disable vibrate and popup, change notification color for each individual contact. You can explore the Custom Notification panel to get more out of it.
- Mute Individual contact: – Now you can mute notification of individual contacts as well. In the initial versions only WhatsApp groups could be made to keep quite.
- Lower Data Consumption in WhatsApp Calls :- WhatsApp call seems to be a mode of free conversation but it eats up a lot of data out of your data pack. Sometimes the cost of data consumed is more than the actual phone call cost. In this new version WhatsApp have a feature in which you would have the option to make conversation at a low level of data exchange. It is still not clear how much data would be saved using this feature and the impact of quality call still not disclosed.
- Google Drive Integration: – Now all your WhatsApp contacts would be integrated with your Google drive.
