Must have feature

I have a lot of groups that I receive important content like from work or university documents but it gets between my person conversations, I wish if you guys can make customised chat folders that the user can include and exclude in it what ever conversation he wants.
And the broadcasted messages from my contacts should be different from the normal conversation.

Great app, but Hebrew is too dense

This is easily the best, most useful app out there, and thousands of hours from my life were wasted on it 😂
But in the latest update you changed Hebrew text to have incredibly little line spacing which I find terribly ugly and difficult on the eyes. Why didn’t you just keep it the way it was? It was perfect! Same goes for the weird small numbers when typing in Hebrew.
Also this update introduced a bug where I can’t send bold text, that is, when I send a bold message it just doesn’t appear bold, at least on my phone. Hope you’ll look into this problem too.

iPhone 12 issues

I have used WhatsApp daily for years. This year I treated myself to an iPhone 12 and have continual problems with the microphone. A number of friends record their messages instead of writing. Frequently, WhatsApp becomes muted and I can’t hear the messages. I restart the phone, hard-reset the phone, turn the microphone on and off and then ask the person to write the message instead. Later the app starts working properly.
I have reinstalled the program using the backup and reinstalled it with no backup (thus losing all info).
Apple can’t help me with this since the microphone works in other apps at the same time.
Very irritating!
