Google Chat adds ability to mark messages and threads as read or unread

Published

Heads Up

Google releases a simple yet useful “mark as unread” feature in Chat. This ability is already found in competing team messaging solutions and is doubled as a simple reminder system.

For mobile, long press on the chat will display a new “Mark as unread” option next to Add reaction, Copy text, and Forward to inbox. It will also be available after tapping the contact’s name in the top left corner. It appears between “Start a new conversation” and “Pin” in the list below.

In the web client, you can highlight the chat in the left sidebar and open the overflow menu, or navigate over each message in the top-right control panel. This will be available in standalone apps and an integrated Gmail experience.

Heads Up

Marking a message as unread can help remind you to return to it later in Chat. In 1:1 and group DMs, you can mark a thread as unread starting from a particular message. To do this, you have to hover over the message and click the mark as an unread icon (via – 9to5google). 

Users can do the opposite and “delete badges in rooms with unread messages by marking as read.” Compared to the inbox transfer, this solution works very well. Slack already offers the same unreadable feature, as well as “Remind me of this.”
