The WhatsApp beta version that was released recently, now has a new feature that lets you quote someone’s text and reply to it, which sounds especially useful for group chats with friends or family. Only problem is, it’s unclear if everyone already has access to it. The feature works on both private chat and groups. To use it, all you need to do is select a message to quote — either text or media. then long press it. A pop-up with options to reply, forward and delete will appear. Just select reply and type in your message before pressing send.
If you can’t seem to make it work, try reinstalling your app or checking again in a day or two you might have it then.
The company is also rumoured to be working on video calling to add to the service.
