WhatsApp for Desktop Just Got a New Chat Selection Update

WhatsApp has long been trying to perfect its desktop and web apps, and one of these updates might change the way that users interact with their various chat windows on the platform. A future update that many eagle eyed users have noted in the beta might give you the ability to select multiple chats at once with all things having been considered and taken into account.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that the ability to select multiple chats has long been a part of the smartphone app. In spite of the fact that this is the case, this feature took a really long time to develop for the desktop version of the online messaging platform.

Such a feature can be highly useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up helping users to better organize their chats. It can be difficult to see which chats are where, and that can make the user experience less enticing than might have been the case otherwise.

One thing to remember is that this update is not going to be rolled out for regular users anytime soon. It is still in the beta testing phase, so we will have to wait and see when WhatsApp decides to roll it out for the general public. Chances are that they would want to make a few tweaks before the wider rollout, but beta testers have not yet reported any issues so it is possible that the release might come sooner rather than later.

Users will be able to mark a number of different conversations and label them as read or unread. This can be especially useful for business users because they often have a multitude of chat windows that they would need to get through. Multi chat selection options can facilitate improved user experiences across the board, and it will be quite exciting when the update finally comes through. Most WhatsApp users will be waiting with bated breath for that to happen, and it will definitely create some buzz.
