WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application, and although there are some very interesting alternatives in the market, its managers are not willing to stay behind and every few offer new features and new features in WhatsApp.
In the last weeks we have seen how prevent WhatsApp photos from showing in our gallery, how read your messages without appearing online and even something as strange as send messages without content , but the novelty that we bring you today is an improvement in management of our chats.
The latest of the new features in WhatsApp comes with the version 2.18.160 of your program Google Play Beta Program and it is something quite useful that many users have been claiming for a while.
From now on, if we click on the dropdown menu top right we will see how a new option appears “select all” . With this new option we will be much more agile when it comes to managing our chats, since we can perform tasks like mark several chats as read (or not read) at one time or archive several chats both.
WhatsApp has not confirmed yet, but we assume that it will also be possible leave several groups at once if we want to “clean up” and abandon several inactive groups or that no longer interest us simultaneously.
We understand that the last of the new functions in WhatsApp does not force us to select all chas at once, but once all our chats are selected, then we can deselect those that we do not want to include in our action.
We must bear in mind that in order to use the function of selecting everything we must have previously selected one of our chats, since otherwise, the option will not appear in the options menu.
We know that those users who barely have a dozen chats and one or two groups will not see this new multiple selection feature with much interest, but there are also people who make a very intensive use of this messaging application.
This type of person can have between 10 and 20 active chats every day and can tend to accumulate messages with astonishing ease.
Surely more than once you have opened the WhatsApp and you have found a lot of green circles indicating that you have many unread messages; for these cases, the option of being able mark all the chats as read it seems very useful, because it is a good way to discard messages that maybe are not too important and to clear our WhatsApp for more fundamental things.
The same can be said of all those chats that have been inactive for a long time and that we never erase due to laziness or lack of time, a multiple selection can help us a lot to store in “the warehouse” those chats that we want to keep but that we no longer use, leaving our application much more orderly and ready for our current conversations.
We remind you that this new feature is still in the debugging phase, but we do not think it takes a long time to get officially to WhatsApp.
