Users of WhatsApp’s desktop app are said to be working on a new feature that will allow them to manage their chats. The feature, which will enable them to select multiple chats at once and carry out specific actions while using the web app, is currently being tested by the Meta-owned messaging service.
Only the Android and iOS apps of WhatsApp currently allow users to select multiple chats. With a single command, users can archive or delete multiple chats, select them and mark them as read or unread.
As indicated by a WABetaInfo report,
WhatsApp for Work area beta is dealing with another component to allow clients to choose different visits, for a future update. According to the report, the feature will enable users to select multiple chats at once, mute them all, or mark them as read or unread. The chats on WhatsApp for desktop will be simple to manage with the latest update.
WABetaInfo has shared a screen capture of the new element that shows another choice “Select visits” accessible in the drop-down menu. Notably, the rollout date for this feature has not been confirmed and is currently under development.
The Desktop app will enable PC and laptop users to report any suspicious status updates while the instant messaging platform is working on another feature. The status will then be examined for any alleged violations of the Terms of Service. In order to prevent the dissemination of malicious content on the platform, WhatsApp currently only offers the capability of reporting spam or suspicious messages to the company.
The instant messaging app will become even more secure with this new status update reporting feature. Because messages, voice calls, media, location sharing, calls, and the reported status update are all protected by end-to-end encryption, the update will be encrypted from beginning to end. Additionally, it is anticipated that the feature will soon be made available to WhatsApp beta users on iOS and Android.
