WhatsApp beta gets another update, adds option to mark message as unread

WhatsApp is working really hard to make Windows Phone version parallel with the iOS and Android versions. Today WhatsApp introduced some new features for the app. The new things included Mark a chat as unread, custom notification sounds for chats, mute a chat and more. As usual the features made an appearance on iOS. The surprising part was that those features made it to the private beta of WhatsApp today. We were able to use the mark as unread option now but are unable to find other features. There might be a chance that WhatsApp didn’t add those features now but an update in next few hours/days might add them too.

Another thing which probably went out of sight was, WhatsApp now offers you to save/block an unknown contact directly from the chat screen as similar to Android. This is another welcomed change for Windows Phone users.

Check the screenshot below for the new changes.
