You’re chatting on WhatsApp, and all of a sudden you get a lot of messages but can’t tell how many. Now you can tell how many messages you get thanks to Chat Helper for WhatsApp; multi-tasking is finally here. The app continually shows you how many unread messages you have. It looks like there are still some bugs to fix since it may not appear in certain apps, but hopefully that will be fixed in future updates.
When you first install the app, you will not have to agree with a long list of permissions, something we have to do with most of the apps we currently download.
If you tap on the app’s icon, you will see a list of your messages with a preview of what the sender has said, but they will remain unread to the sender. Without a doubt, it’s a handy app. After all, talking to three or four people at the same time can drive you crazy with so many messages, but this app makes everything a whole lot easier by helping you alternate between various chats. If you want to go back to your chat, you can just hit the back button.
If you are looking for simplicity in an app, you’ve found it with Chat Helper for WhatsApp since this is all it does. It’s a very easy-to-use app that goes straight to the point by telling you something you don’t get with the messaging service’s official app: how many unread messages you have, even if they are from five different people. The widget that’s created will follow you wherever you are on your phone, whether you are on your home screen or using another app. You will always be able to see your unread WhatsApp messages.
The apps icon is going to be hanging about in the upper right-hand corner of your device’s display. It only has to be there if that’s where you want it to be since it can easily be moved up or down until it’s where you want it to be. For now, it’s limited to the right side of the screen.
