Whatsapp update: New function so far only for iOS devices
After the update, users should be able to set that they will only be notified if they are explicitly mentioned in a group chat. In addition, you will also receive a push message if a reply to your own group message has been sent. Then, in addition to the push message, the profile picture of the respective contact person should also be displayed. According to the report, however, this setting only applies to group chats and not to private chats. In addition, the new feature has so far only applied to iOS users. They can already access the update using the beta version of Whatsapp. It is currently not known whether the function will also be available for Android smartphones in the future. An exact release date for the update has not yet been set. You can find more Whatsapp news* about Messenger on our topic page.
