How To Mark Message As Unread On Whatsapp
The mark message as unread feature is not yet included in the latest version of Whatsapp on Google Playstore for Android users or any other stores for the time being but you can download directly from the Company’s website, make sure you allow “install apps from third party” in your Android device settings to download it. It will alter nothing in your Whatsapp, not even chat history, it will only add the mark as unread feature to your Whatsapp.
So, to mark Whatsapp conversation as unread being a single chat or group chat, after downloading the updates, tap and hold on the conversation pane and you will see the feature option “mark as unread”.
Whenever you marked a particular conversation on whatsapp as unread, it will be flagged with a green circle alongside the date it was sent. However, this features only allows you to see a message as unread maybe for a later reading, the moment you check this message the seen mark will be shown to the sender. I guess you can’t deceive the sender yet that his/her message has not been seen by you 🙂 !
