How to use WhatsApp Private Reply?
Beta version 2.18.335 brings with it the Reply Privately feature – the ability to reply privately to a contact in a group chat.
“When you tap reply privately, WhatsApp will automatically open the private chat with the contact,” the Facebook-owned company announced in a statement.
It allows users to privately send messages to a someone in a group without letting others in the group know.
The feature is very easy to use – begin by hold the message of the sender you wish to contact privately.
Then tap on the three-dotted menu on the top right corner of the app.
This will reveal the Private Reply option.
The selected message will then open privately in the chat window in the form of a reply thread.
The latest version of the Android beta app is required to use this feature.
