WhatsApp Quote-in-Reply feature now working in beta


WhatsApp Quote-in-Reply is yet another latest feature that will be launched anytime soon. This is coming after the Facebook-owned company hinted about introducing ‘Public Group invites via links’ option in the upcoming WhatsApp messenger App that will be due for release anytime soon.

A lot of people have reported seeing the latest features in display – WhatsApp showing a reply button when you select any message. When you select any message in any conversation – be it a text or media message in a one-on-one or group chat – you see a Reply button at the top of the screen among the different options to delete and star and forward. Tap it and the quoted message will show up as a preview on top of the text entry box where you can add your reply.


Only a few messaging platforms are having the Quote-in-Reply feature. And if you are a user of Blackberry Messenger, you will notice this option is already in operation there (join RubizTech BBM Community here). For Telegram messenger, it is message editing, mentioning any member and adding chat shortcut to home screen. (join RubizTechTrends Telegram community here).

Though still in beta stage and available to those who joined WhatsApp testing program sometime in March, the WhatsApp group Quote-in-Reply feature could be easily gotten for any smartphone. Once this feature is gotten and enabled on your phone, you will be able to quote people in your WhatsApp group and chat replies.

Once you’ve sent your reply, it will show up inside the conversation with the original quoted message attached on top of it, along with the sender’s color-coded name. This will work well in group chats where each participant gets a specific color. Anyone can tap that attached quote to move to the corresponding message quickly.
