General News WhatsApp beta for Android: Here is how you can send private reply to a group member
Advertisement
#1
WhatsApp has started rolling out a new update for its beta users on Android which enables the “Private Reply” feature. While the name sounds like a major new feature, it does not seem like a big deal in real life. The feature is a basic messaging feature that has been there on old-school instant messaging services.

The new Private Reply feature allows users to send a private message from within a group message. For example, if you are in a group chat and want to privately reply to a particular message which only the sender of the message can see and not everyone in the group then this feature becomes really useful. Previously, you had to take a screenshot or remind the sender about the message.

Now, you can select a particular message within WhatsApp group and tap on three dots at the top right corner to see the reply privately option. Tapping on reply privately, opens the message in the chat window of the sender. The feature works similar to Reply messages but is enabled within the group chat option to privately answer to sender of a message.

How to use WhatsApp’s Private Reply Feature

Step 1: Select the message of the sender to which you would want to reply privately. Then tap on the three dots on the top right corner. This will reveal the reply privately option.

Step 2: Selecting reply privately will open the highlighted message in the form of a reply thread in the chat window of the sender. This allows for a seamless transition between group messaging and private individual chats. However, WhatsApp users should not confuse this feature for incognito mode available on other messaging services.

WhatsApp’s private reply feature is only available with version 2.18.335 being seeded to beta testers on Android. According to WABetaInfo, the update brings a minor new feature but also has a major bug. It claims WhatsApp crashes whenever users on this version delete a particular media message from a group. This issue should be resolved with the next beta update.
