Three features WhatsApp SHOULD have – as new update adds chat reactions

WHATSAPP is constantly evolving with new features and many are long requested by users themselves.

As we saw with the recent new reactions, it does work eventually.

So what other features are people calling for on the world's most popular messaging app?

1. Remove the 'message was deleted' notification

While it can be useful, not everyone is fond of it.

"WhatsApp should remove the « typing , online » option I hate it," one user said.

Another added that it "doesn't do any good for people with anxiety".

3. WhatsApp chat folders

With so many contacts and groups, things can get a bit messy.

As such, some people have called for a folder option to organise them.

"WhatsApp should really consider creating a folder function so I can sort out my university groups and my personal chats because they’re getting too messy," one user suggested.

"I barely use WhatsApp for personal use anymore due to a lot of messages from groups and personal chats coming in all at once."
