WhatsApp is constantly on a quest to offer its users the best experience. Therefore, it came with a new set of updates that make the app friendlier and a lot easier to use. These updates are High Priority Notification and Dismiss as Admin, and turn WhatsApp into a more useful means of communication.
The High Priority Notification lets you pin whatever is important
If you are a regular user of WhatsApp, you will definitely enjoy these new updates that have been prepared for you. Let’s start with the High Priority Notification that definitely makes things a lot easier. Last year, the instant messaging platform released a similar update that allowed you to prioritize chats.
Now, the High Priority Notification is based on the same principle. There are certain notifications that are more important for you, so you’d like to see them first. With this feature, you can select whatever you find relevant, and pin it. Afterwards, these notifications will appear first on that list that shows you everything that’s new.
WhatsApp allows you to use this feature right in the notification center. However, this can be tricky in certain situations. If you use more apps that let you prioritize their notifications, you will no longer see the WhatsApp ones first. Activating the feature from these settings will display the prioritized ones in the order you receive them. Therefore, it’s better to activate it directly from the app.
Dismiss as Admin is the other exclusive WhatsApp feature
The other feature is called Dismiss as Admin, and is specially created for groups. If you wanted to replace one admin or steal this title from them, you had to remove the person from the group. Now, you no longer need to create group drama. One admin can downgrade another admin from this position by using this feature. This can happen without kicking them from the group.
At the moment, the updates are available only on iOS, and only if you have the new WhatsApp version 2.18.41. The features are available on web as well but, for Android, you’ll need to wait a little longer.
