In the new beta version of WhatsApp it has been possible to see a new function, designed for automatically mute the sound those chats that you archive. Called Read Later, it won’t take long to reach the app users on Android.
WhatsApp displays a notice announcing a change to its privacy terms. We explain what this notice means and how it affects you.
WhatsApp will disable archived chats
We have been able to archive chats on WhatsApp for years. By doing this, said conversation is not displayed in the conversations window, but is stored in the File section. When we receive a new message in this chat, the conversation will return to this chat window, leaving the archive. With the new Read Later feature, that will change.
The Read Later feature will allow us to save any discussion to read it later. This chat will be archived, as was the case until now, but also this conversation will be automatically cut off. This means that if someone posts a message in said chat, it will not be displayed as before. Although, users have the option to move these chats to the main window if they wish.
With this change, WhatsApp seeks that the user can archive those conversations you don’t want continue, without having to delete them. Moreover, it also allows you to avoid interruptions, as this chat will not be displayed in the main window, and it will not emit a notification. Users will have the option to choose to archive conversations and turn them off or just archive them.
This feature is expected to arrive on WhatsApp this year. Most likely, in some of the next beta versions of the app we will already have access to this new feature, but at the moment no date has been given.
