The title of this blog itself should suggest you what this post is going to be all about. Ever been a part of a WhatsApp group, then you would know how it feels to be a part that is constantly buzzing with activity. Even if you are not willing to be a part of the group,it would be rude to quit the group where almost all of them know you. There is an option to mute the group and disable notifications for the same.
WhatsApp group is a necessity these days. Earlier we used to crave for a facility where we could message a group of people at the same time. Or if we need to give an update to a group of people then obviously WhatsApp group is a good option. I am a part of several WhatsApp groups. We have a WhatsApp group of job seekers named Mumbai Testing group, Office group called - Bloody Testers and Family group with all family members named - Coolest Family Ever. A common update can be shared with such groups. Even my 14-year-old nephew is a part of a WhatsApp group which was the official group for his school class.
What if the group is constantly pouring messages and you miss some important message? Or if you want to reply to a person individually? The only way to reply to such an individual message is to private message the person and ask for options. Now there is an alternate way to do so. Thanks to the new update from the WhatsApp Messenger. Download version 2.16.119 for this facility.
Let us see how to do it.
1. Go to a group. In this example I will seek service from a group named - Friends Coffee House.
2. Long press on the message that you want to reply and click on the icon that is encircled in the below screenshot. For iOS, long press and click on the reply option.
3. Write the message that you want to reply and click send icon.
4. You could then see the message as displayed below.
So today, you learned how to reply to individual messages in a WhatsApp group. I plan to do more such blogs.
