The WhatsApp instant messaging application has launched a new update to its beta version on the Apple iOS operating system, which provides a new feature for users of the messaging service via iPhone phones.
According to WABetaInfo, users of the WhatsApp beta version on iOS will be able to view entire threads of incoming chat messages via the redesigned notification menu without having to read them within the app.
The new WhatsApp feature provides iPhone users with an effective way to quickly view messages, but will also allow them to read messages without letting the sender know that they have been read, as one of the hidden features of the service.
And users of WhatsApp versions on iPhone phones, once the future feature is introduced, will be able to swipe up to view old messages from that chat whose owner sent a new message, unlike the previous peek feature, where the user was only able to view new messages in a fixed cell.
But the new WhatsApp feature will allow the user to view more messages and even media such as photos, GIFs, videos and stickers, by expanding the in-app notification to show a full preview of the chat, where the user can swipe up and down in the new viewing window to see the oldest or most recent messages.
The user will not need to enter the chat to view the media, therefore, the chat will not eventually update to the sender and will not get the blue tick, even if the read receipts feature is turned on, however, if the user chooses to reply from within the notification, all previous messages with Gray mark to blue.
