WhatsApp Green Dot: What Does It Mean and How to Get Rid of It?
WhatsApp is undoubtedly one of the most widely used and popular messaging apps. However, there are features of the app that many users are not aware of. One such feature is the green dot that appears in our chats. You may have come across a green dot alongside a number in the chat list, which is different from the standard green dot that indicates a new message. So, what does this dot mean, and how do you remove it?
Well, the green dot that appears next to the chat in WhatsApp indicates that you have an unopened message. This dot is different from the standard green dot, which appears when you receive a new message. This dot appears when you mark a chat as unread because you want to come back and read the message later. It is essentially a reminder that you have an unread message. To remove this green dot, you can simply go and read the message, and it will disappear.
But, if you do not want to read the message yet and want to keep the chat as read, you can mark it as unread again by tapping on the chat’s three-dot icon and selecting “Mark as Unread.” This option is available in all versions of WhatsApp.
Also, it is important to note that WhatsApp is an internet-based application and works with an internet connection. So, if you remove the SIM card from your phone, you can still use WhatsApp as long as you have an internet connection. However, if you use mobile data and remove the SIM card, you will no longer be able to chat, make or receive calls, or video calls.
In conclusion, the green dot that appears on WhatsApp chats is the app’s way of reminding you that you have an unread message. You can easily get rid of it by reading the message or marking the chat as read. Also, keep in mind that WhatsApp works with an internet connection and removing the SIM card will not affect your WhatsApp usage, as long as you have an internet connection.
