A new Android update for WhatsApp moves the popular messaging app forward again, expanding functionality and making itself more essential to users. Sure to be popular among WhatsApp users is the new, extensive message customization options. Android Police reports that the new notification system allows for muting chats, with option for 8 hours, 1 week, or 1 year. (Wonder how popular the 1 year mute will be?)
Probably the best update is the Mark as Unread option, which gives users an easy way to prioritize messages that have already been viewed by highlighting them in the queue as new — without affecting their status in the chat. The update also includes a low data option for voice calls. You can download the new WhatsApp version at APKMirror here.
