Today, WhatsApp is an essential instant messaging application. Owned by Meta, the application has no less than 2 billion active users every month across the four corners of the world. Obviously, its parent company takes good care of it. WhatsApp regularly posts updates and new features with the aim of always improving the experience of its users.

In recent weeks, WhatsApp has completely revised its navigation bar, implemented a filter system, the possibility of choosing the color of message bubbles or even using passkeys to reconnect to the app.

A few days ago, WABetaInfo spotted a new feature that promises to simplify your use of WhatsApp. It looks like the app wants to ease your mind by automatically resetting old, unread messages when you open WhatsApp. If you receive a lot of messages, this should be particularly relevant.

Better for your well-being, and your time

With version of WhatsApp, it is possible to activate a feature that promises to save you a lot of time… And relieve your mental load.

If you let notifications pile up on WhatsApp without bothering to open and read the messages you receive, The hugely popular instant messaging app has a feature that will save you. Indeed, the new WhatsApp feature allows you to mark as “read” all old, unread messages when you last opened the application. Enough to separate you from certain oppressive notifications to concentrate on communications that are really important to you.

In the age of hyperconnection, notifications can be a real source of stress for users. There are several schools, but many users hate having notifications hanging around. Say you're in a group chat with a lot of people, the stream of notifications can be overwhelming. This is where WhatsApp’s new feature comes into its own.

At this time, we do not know how senders will perceive this automatic reading of messages that are lying around. Still, this can only do good for users, more and more of whom are dreaming of a digital detox. This new feature could help free us from the weight of notifications, which create a feeling of urgency when, most of the time, there is none.

We'll have to wait a little longer to discover this new feature on WhatsApp. Currently, only a few lucky users can beta test it, but we imagine that the instant messaging application will soon deploy it to the general public.
