Incoming messages are shown on the left and outgoing messages are shown on the right. The number of messages for every contact is shown (in brackets). You can also view group and archived chats as well as system messages.
The emoji are displayed in both message texts and contacts.
In WhatsApp Business backups, messages and chats can be marked with label icons . These are labels assigned by the user. Point to the label icon to view its name.
You can view the message attachments of the following types: pictures, audio, video (starting with WhatsApp 2.12.7), contacts, and Google Maps locations.
To save the attachments to your computer, click Save next to the selected attachment, define the destination folder, and click Save.
