New Delhi: WhatsApp has introduced some new exciting features for the Android app on the Play Store.

With the new features, users now have the option to mute notifications for individual chats, whereas earlier users could only mute groups.

The new features also include an option where users are able to mark chats as read or unread by simply long-pressing the particular chat.

WhatsApp has also added some new emojis, including the new Spock-inspired vulcan salute along with a middle finger gesture. Users can also choose different skin tones for some of the emoji.

There is also an option to reduce call quality and use less data.

Users can now quickly message or save the contact while receiving a contact card if they are on WhatsApp.
