New feature on WhatsApp beta lets users mark messages as ‘read’

WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature on its beta app for Android which allows users to mark their messages 'read' from the notifications itself. This feature comes shortly after WhatsApp rolled out the group calling feature which allows users to add up to four participants in a video or audio call. Telegram recently rolled the same feature which allows Android users to mark their notifications read from the notifications panel. The new feature is currently available only for WhatsApp beta users on Android with the latest update. You can become a beta user by enrolling yourself into WhatsApp's beta testing program by clicking here. If you wish to opt out of the program at any point, simply uninstall the testing version, and download the public version of WhatsApp from Google Play Store.
