WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that will allow users to manage their chats on its desktop app. The Meta-owned messaging service is testing the functionality for a future update that will allow them to select multiple chats at once and perform certain actions while using the web version of the app. WhatsApp currently offers the ability to select multiple chats only on Android and iOS apps. Users can select multiple chats, mark them as read or unread, archive or delete them with a single command.


According to a WABetaInfo report, the beta version of WhatsApp for Desktop is working on a new feature allowing users to select multiple chats, for a future update. The report suggests that the feature will allow users to select multiple chats at once and mute them or mark them all as read or unread. With the new update, it will be easy to manage chats on WhatsApp for computer.

WABetaInfo has shared a screenshot of the new feature which shows a new “Select Chats” option available in the drop-down menu. Notably, this feature is currently under development and there is no confirmation on the rollout date for the same.

Meanwhile, the instant messaging platform is also working on another feature, which will allow users to report any suspicious status updates on PCs or laptops to the desktop app. Any status alleged to violate the Terms of Service will then be reviewed. Currently, WhatsApp only offers the option to report suspicious or spam messages to the company in order to stop the spread of malicious content on the platform.

With this new ability to report status update features, the instant messaging app will become even more secure. The reported status update will be end-to-end encrypted, as messages, voice calls, media, location sharing, calls, and status updates are all protected by end-to-end encryption. The feature is also expected to roll out to WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS in the future.
