New Delhi: Soon WhatsApp users will be able to reply privately to contacts in a group chat.
The new messaging feature is now currently available for WhatApp Android beta, a report by WABetaInfo, a popular website that tracks WhatsApp, has said.
The Android beta version is available at 2.18.355.
The feature called ‘Reply privately’ allows users to respond directly to the personal chat of a specific group member.
WABetaInfo said that the feature also works for old messages, closed groups and also for groups where Send Messages setting is set to “Only administrators”.
Last month WABetaInfo also reported that WhatsApp is working out on three new features, including linking your account to Instagram, Vacation and Silent Mode.
Tapping Instagram, after inserting your credentials, your WhatsApp account will be correctly linked to your Instagram profile, it added.
The Linked Accounts option will be located under your profile settings. With the Vacation Mode feature, archived chats won't be unarchived if you have previously muted them.
The option will be available in WhatsApp Settings and then Notifications. The silent mode feature for Android allows to hide the app badge for muted chats.
