WhatsApp beta has got three new features with the last update (2.12.74) that rolled out to the private beta users last week. The attempt is to give users more control over the app’s notification and alert settings.
There are more customized alert settings now with this update, which allows users to set their desired alert tone for individual chats and group chats separately. In-App notifications are added where the user gets notified about any new message in the remaining chats when in another chat. Notifications can be totally turned off taking advantage of the unread message and missed call counter at the screen’s top inside the app.
Knowledge improves by mutual sharing of information. So share it.
