Well, now it seems that the company taking the responsibility very seriously. As a new report says that the company is working on a new feature which will be called ‘Mark as Read’ and it will help users to mark unread messages as read directly from the notification panel.
The folks at WABetaInfo tipped that developers of the WhatsApp are working on ‘Mark as Read’ feature, its actually a button which will appear with WhatsApp messages and next to the ‘Reply To’ button in notification. The feature is currently testing in the beta version of 2.18.214 on Android.
Having said that, the feature will not appear to you even if you are using the same beta version because the feature is in the development stage and the company will enable it from its server. Moreover, the source also claims that the company is testing another feature which will allow users to mute messages directly from the notification.
