Quote And Reply Option Now Available In WhatsApp

The Facebook acquired instant messaging application WhatsApp Inc. has recently unveiled the latest version update of WhatsApp, coded with simple but useful features. The Update crafted as v2.16.118, now allows one to simply quote and reply corresponding to the text. The particular feature will boost usability and accessibility as it saves one from manually copy-pasting significant texts out of a stack in group message window. As related, we can compare our CE forum +Quote|Reply feature with the new update which saves time and effort in long discussions.

Until recently, the update was only available in beta versions and downloadable from 3rd party application stores like apkmirror etc. Now, many users especially having the latest android and i-OS installed are reportedly getting an update notification from WhatsApp in conjunction with Google Play Store. Harvesting modern technology and related advancements, chatting applications have become an integral part of our daily lives. Whether formal, informal, technical, messaging groups are now ushering relevant importance alongside one-to-one messaging.


The included feature comes packed in an easy-to-use popping style window. If the aforementioned action is required, user only has to long press the selected message and hit option “Reply”. After that, the message will appear as a quoted section stitched with the “reply to the text”. Additionally, the option panel will store star, delete, forward, and copy tag to accompany “reply”.

We already know, WhatsApp is the most popular global chatting application having the largest amount of users recorded. In spite of such a scenario, an opposition forms against it due to its so called boring UI. Keeping reference to the latest action, however it could be stated that even WhatsApp is gradually updating its motto and coming on the track with other feature based chatting competitors with latest end-to-end encryption, text strike-through feature, PDF sharing feature etc.
