WhatsApp gets quote messages update


WhatsApp now has the ability to quote message you want to reply to, which sounds especially useful for group chats with friends or family.

WhatsApp has got a new feature that will let users quote messages when replying.While earlier this week, the new feature was spotted in beta builds of WhatsApp for Android,it is now rolling out for most users across Android and iOS running the general release builds from Google Play and the App Store.The feature works on one-to-one chats as well as group chats.

How it will work :

  • You need to long press a message in any conversation to see a reply option pop up alongside star, delete, forward, and copy.
  • On tapping the reply button, the original message will appear as a quote, and users can reply to that.

On the receiver’s end, the quoted message will appear as a grey box with the reply below it.


The Facebook-owned messaging service has been adding new features at a steady pace. The company was recently added end-to-end encryption and drop annual charges.
