Gradually but yet steadily, WhatsApp is getting a slew of new features that have been long overdue.
The new update, which is already being rolled out on Android & iOS devices, allows you to reply to specific chat messages.
This it does by you simply highlighting (by pressing down on) the particular message and clicking on the reply arrow at the top. The message you intend to reply to appears quoted in a grey box where you can then type your message and send.
Convenience FINALLY!!!! Lol
Here’s a list of updates made recently on on WhatsApp:
- Sending documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF)
- GIF Image Exchange (coming soon)
- WhatsApp for Desktop
- End to end message encryption
