After installing the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows 2.2319.4.0 update from the Microsoft Store, some users may experiment with improved support for message drafts. This feature is available since a long time for the native WhatsApp app for Windows. However, users often forget that they started composing a message within a conversation because the app does not indicate the presence of a message in the chat bar. Finally, thanks to the improvements available in the latest update of the app, the draft indicator will allow users to notice this detail.
As you can see in the screenshot, chats that contain a draft message will now be marked with a green label called “draft”. This labeling system provides important information, allowing users to easily identify chats where messages haven’t been sent yet. In addition, WhatsApp has implemented a feature to prioritize conversations with draft messages by moving them to the top of the chat list. This new placement ensures that users won’t overlook these drafts and helps draw attention to their presence.
With this update, WhatsApp wants to address a common issue where users would forget about partially composed messages within conversations. The introduction of the “Draft” label and the strategic placement of drafts at the top of the chat list provide users with a good solution, making it easier for people to notice, resume, and send, their unfinished messages.
Enhanced support for message drafts is available for some beta testers that install the latest WhatsApp beta for Windows update released on the Microsoft Store. If you don’t see this update on the Microsoft Store, please note that it will be rolled out to more users over the coming days.
