New features Of WhatsApp You Should Definitely know
So now with the new update you can mark your read messages as unread. 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. Instead, it can be used to highlight messages so you can get back to them later. Also, marking a message as unread will not change the order of conversations on the app.
#4 Custom notifications
Now WhatsApp allows you to customize the notifications for every individual separately. 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.
#3 Mute individual Contacts
With this new update, you can mute individual contacts. 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.
#2 Lower data consumption in WhatsApp calls
If you are a WhastApp calling person, you gonna love this new feature. 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.
#1 Google Drive integration
A new feature which will go live soon. Now all your WhatsApp chats will be backed om your Google Account. 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. This is clearly a precursor of the long-awaited Google Drive integration to WhatsApp, which will make backing up your chats, images, videos, voice messages etc much easier.
