In its efforts to improve the quality of its services and make them more user-friendly, the foremost mobile messaging app, WhatsApp, has introduced a new filter called “unread” which reminds users of their unread messages.
The introduction of the new filter was made known late Monday night on WhatsApp’s verified Twitter account.
According to the management of WhatsApp, the new “unread” filter will give its over 2 billion active users more control over their chats and ensure users never miss messages from their loved ones again.
The statement read: “Now you can sort your chats with an “unread” filter for extra control and organization. Never miss another message from papai or the message from your irmã asking why you didn’t respond to papai ”
