WhatsApp Tip: How to Mark Chats as Read/Unread

Do you know this too? When you receive a lot of messages on WhatsApp, you just read through them quickly.

And later you realize that you should have replied to one or the other message. There’s a trick for that: you can manually mark messages as unread.

As soon as you’re in a dead zone for two or three hours or in an important conversation, a lot of messages come in on WhatsApp. Often, you just read these messages quickly. But what if you should reply to a message? Or pass on an important piece of info?

Similar to a mail program, you can also mark WhatsApp messages as read or unread. The important thing is this: The marking only affects you. The sender still sees both checkmarks on the message and waits for your reply.
