Whatsapp is introducing a ‘Read Later’ feature

1 Mins read

Over the past couple of months, WhatsApp has been rolling out a number of new features aimed at improving the overall user experience. Today, reports suggest that a ‘Read Later’ feature is coming soon on the messaging platform and that it will replace the existing Archive Chats.

Slightly similar to the Archived chats feature, the Read Later feature allows users to mute chosen chats for as long as they want. The major difference between the two is that the new feature will not send notifications to users whenever a new message arrives from an archived conversation.

The new feature is said to be a part of WhatsApp beta for iPhone. It will allow users to add a contact to their Read Later category. As soon as the contact is added to this feature, there won’t be any notifications, message or call or from the user. Users can choose to enable or disable the user at any time they wish to, similar to what we have seen in the Vacation mode, which has been rumoured for many months now.

WhatsApp is yet to officially reveal further details about the feature, but until then. We’ll keep you updated.
