How to Mark WhatsApp chats Unread on Android and iPhone
What is WhatsApp?
It is a cross-platform freeware, centralised messaging and VoIP service, that is owned by Facebook. When it comes to communication, you can send text, voice, and video messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, locations, and other content. WhatsApp can be accessed on both mobile and desktop devices, but the user’s mobile device must be connected to the Internet for it to be available on both platforms. One must own a cellular phone in order to sign up for the service. In January 2018, WhatsApp Business, a separate business app built to help small business owners communicate with customers who use the standard WhatsApp client, was released.
It has become commonplace for people to use Android smartphones, and the internet is being used increasingly to connect with friends, family, and relatives. In this day and age, most smartphones come with dual-sim capabilities, which means that people need multiple devices like Facebook accounts, WhatsApp numbers, or whatever else we use on a daily basis.
With so many WhatsApp messages arriving regularly, you would probably often forget to reply and later regret not responding to an important one. With so many WhatsApp messages arriving regularly, you would probably often forget to reply and later regret not responding to an important one.
The ‘unread’ option on WhatsApp reminds us that messages we have left seen need to be responded to. It’s okay to reply to messages you’ve marked as ‘unread’ whenever you get the chance. As soon as you open these messages, they will be marked as read again. Marking a message as ‘unread’ simply means that you are the only one who sees it as unread. As long as you don’t reply, the sender will continue to see the Blue Ticks indicating that you have read the message but not responded.
Mark Unread in Whatsapp For Android
- Go to your phone’s WhatsApp app.
- By long pressing on an unread chat, you can mark the conversation as unread.
- If you wish, you can mark multiple conversations as unread at once.
- After selecting the contacts, tap on the three dots in the top right corner and select Mark as unread.
- To do so, tap on more, displayed as three dots in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Touch the ‘Mark as unread’ button.
If you select this option, the selected conversation(s) will be marked with a green dot, and the Chats unread count will include the marked unread chats.
Once you open the chat, you will be able to read the conversations. You can also long tap the unread conversation and choose Mark as read this time.
Mark Unread in Whatsapp For iPhone
- Open WhatsApp on your phone.
- Tap right on the chat you wish to mark as unread.
- Now select the option ‘Mark as unread’.
If you have already read a chat, marking it as unread will not remove or undo the blue tick. Therefore, you will still be able to let the other person know you have read their message. The purpose of this feature is to help you follow up on a conversation later.
More about Android Mobile Phones
Android is a mobile operating system based on a modified version of the Linux kernel, which is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The Open Handset Alliance develops Android, which is a commercially sponsored operating system developed by Google. In September 2008, the first Android device, the HTC Dream, was launched. Android was unveiled in November 2007.
The Android ecosystem supports about 70 percent of all smartphones; some vendors offer their own software suites and user interfaces, for example LG and Samsung. However, the names and logos of “Android” are trademarked. Google imposes standards to prevent uncertified devices from using the Android brand outside of its ecosystem.
More About iPhone
The iPhone (colloquially known as the first-generation iPhone, iPhone 2G, or iPhone 1 after 2008 to distinguish it from later models) is the first smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The first iPhone was announced in 2007 and released in June of the same year in the United States.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs envisioned an Apple touchscreen device in 2005 that users could interact with directly with their fingertips rather than with a stylus. Several touchscreen devices then were equipped with a stylus, such as Apple’s Newton, which was launched in 1993. A triple-layered capacitive touchscreen, a very revolutionary feature at the time, was what the device would need.
