    But instead of a quick tap on the chat, you’ll hold your finger on it for half a second. And that’s it! There, a preview popup will appear, allowing you to see at least the last 5 messages sent by the person you like. You can even choose to ignore the conversation without having to open the message. You can also “mark as read” on the discussion – although this eliminates all that manipulation.
