WhatsApp Messenger upcoming update will offer users to send expiring messages, select ‘Mute Always’ option and multi-device access
WhatsApp Messenger is a popular app owned by social media giant Facebook that allows users to send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other media. It has become the primary means of electronic communication in multiple countries and locations, including Latin America, the Indian subcontinent, and large parts of Europe and Africa.
Well, The beta version of the WhatsApp for Android has been recently released with a new mute feature that allows users to mute any chat right from the notifications shade. However, the mute feature has been designed in a way that it only shows up when you receive at least 51 messages from a single chat. Before receiving the requisite number of messages, the app shows a ‘Mark as read” button instead, which you can tap to dismiss the notification.
The amazing thing about this new feature is that it will now allow users to select the ‘Mute Always’ option. According to a recent report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a new Mute Always setting for chats that will allow users to indefinitely mute any chat or group chat. The feature appears within the Mute notifications option within any given chat and replaces the 1-year option currently available in the settings.
Along with this feature WABetaInfo also said that the company has released a new feature that will allow users to send expiring messages and support multiple device access. The upcoming feature was spotted in WhatsApp beta for Android version 22.214.171.124, and it’s currently under development.
