    Here is a message I sent to WhatsApp this morning. If they implement it then we will be able to prevent some of these recurring Unread WhatsApp messages in Hub.

    Please join me in sending them the same!
    @LiamQ and @max-bb if you can contact WhatsApp as well this might be looked into more seriously

    Hi there*

    Can you please add an option to mark a message as read right from the notification bar in Android?*

    Currently messages can be replied to and obviously dismissed from the OS notification but they can't be marked as read which brings them back to the notification menu every time a new message comes in, not necessarily from the same sender.*

    Opening the app just to mark messages as read is not only unproductive but creates the redundant behavior described above.*

    Please implement!*

    Thanks for the consideration,*

    FYI... it's in WhatsApp's best interest to get you to use their app.

    There is no doubt that Google would like Developers to allow much more from the notification screen - which is what BlackBerry HUB is basically mimicking. But that just isn't what those 3rd Party Developers want... especially those that utilize ads to create revenues.

    Make sense but that said, how come Textra and many other SMS apps allow it?
