A new version of WhatsApp named 2.12.112 has been released for Windows Phone users with many enhancements and new features. The update is available for all Windows Phone users via Windows Store. The update has been launched out to Android and iOS users earlier and WhatsApp is trying its best to keep Windows Phone at par with other platforms. 

New Features in WhatsApp version 2.12.112 for Windows Phone

Mark chats as read/unread - Tapping and holding a chat will give you an option to mark a chat message as unread. This can be very useful in putting up a reminder for yourself to re-read it later. This feature can be used particulary when you have read a chat message in a hurry and you need to read it again when you have the luxury to do so. Mark it as unread, so that an unread message will remind you, simple.
