WhatsApp is soon going to launch a new feature and is in the process of releasing another

WhatsApp has long since been one of the most used apps in the world with millions of people who use it daily to keep in touch with their loved ones and acquaintances. The app was launched in 2009 by app developers Jan Koum and Brian Acton and was later bought by Facebook for 19.3 billion dollars in 2014.

As we all know, every app needs updates and new features to further provide its services to its users and the same is the case with WhatsApp. At the moment there are two updates lined up with one already undergoing release.

The first update, spotted by WBI, is that WhatsApp is releasing a new feature that will allow users to filter unread chats. This feature was previously seen in some beta users’ phones and now this feature while still in beta is available for a larger spectrum of people.


This feature lets users filter their WhatsApp chats so that they only show whatever unread messages that they have. But due to some reasons unbeknownst to us, this feature has been disabled for the next update.

However, the users who have the WhatsApp Beta Android 2.22.16.14 update are in luck because somehow this update has found its way into that version and is available for them.

As seen in a screenshot posted by WABetaInfo, when you search for a specific chat you will be able to apply this feature that will only show the unread chats that you have.

This feature has only been released for a few beta testers at the moment, but more advancements are underway, so make sure that you keep up your version of WhatsApp using the Play Store.

Now as for the second feature, this feature is still under development and is for the iOS version of the app. If a user doesn’t want to be part of a specific group or the group has been dissolved then they leave the group using the leave group option on the menu. But the only downside is that everyone will be able to see that this user has left the group.

Now WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow users to leave the group without alerting everyone. With this feature, users will be able to leave the group without a message announcing their leave, but the group admin would be alerted, and the group participants will still be able to see who left in the past participant's tabs.
