WhatsApp is testing Read Later to prevent disturbance

The instant messaging service WhatsApp is currently testing – in the Android system version of its application – a new change that replaces the existing (archived chats) feature as the Read Later feature.

And publish a site WABetaInfo – Who specializes in monitoring experimental features in the WhatsApp service – Screenshots of the (Read later) feature, which is currently being tested.

The site said: The (read later) feature is an improved version of the current (archived chats) feature, but the difference will be that no notifications will come when a message comes from archived chats. By de-archiving the chats, the process will be reversed.

What's Up

WABetaInfo added that the user will find; When activating the feature in a future update of the WhatsApp application, a new section at the top of the chat list is named (Reading Later).

The site explained that by opening the section (reading later), the user will see an explanation of the feature, as WhatsApp says: “To reduce interruptions, the chats that you receive new messages will remain here, and you will not receive any notifications.”

What's Up

It is noteworthy that the (reading later) feature is integrated with another feature that WhatsApp is currently testing, which is (Vacation Mode), which will keep the ignored conversations archived and hidden from view even if the user receives a new message. In the past, WhatsApp – when archiving a chat – used to automatically cancel archiving once a new message was received from that chat.

What's Up

Thanks to the (leave mode) feature, things will change soon for archived chats, when you activate the feature from the WhatsApp notification settings, the archived chats will not be deleted, and it is believed that this feature will be useful to all annoying family and colleagues groups that the user may add to without his consent.

In news related to the WhatsApp service, the service began a few days ago by launching the shopping button, which allows the user to go to the list of products provided by the business.

The new button from WhatsApp allows companies to sell products directly within the application through Facebook Shops, an online store launched by Facebook last May to provide a unified shopping experience through Facebook applications.

The feature is still available in its experimental form, and there is no information about when it will be launched to the general public, but those wishing to try it can subscribe to WhatsApp beta program On Android, you can also download and install the latest trial version of the app manually from Here.
