Secret Reply to WhatsApp

Did you know you could easily respond privately to a WhatsApp group message without alerting other group participants? You've come to the correct location if the conclusion is no. Although the Facebook-owned company WhatsApp messenger has been one of the most commonly adopted chat apps worldwide, with over 2 billion subscribers, it certainly will not rest on its laurels because it constantly introduces innovative functionality to boost user experience.

Last year WhatsApp launched a 'Reply Privately' function that is included in group conversations. The functionality enables users to pick each message in a group chat and answer to the sender individually, instead of answering in the group itself. The amazing part is that other group participants will not be able to view the private message you would have sent using the feature. Sounds amazing, right?

Both Android apps and iOS devices have the functionality enabled, with small variances in how the operation is performed. This functionality is more useful for users who might not be involved in sharing their opinions in a group chat but who want to make a point.

How then, do I post a private reply? follow the steps below

  • First of all, you'll need the latest version of WhatsApp if your device is not already set to auto-download for application updates. Android users should visit Google Play Store to get the latest update.

  • Once all that is set, open WhatsApp and enter any of the groups that you are in.

  • Now, when you want to reply to a message in a group chat, but you only want the sender to see your response, start by long-pressing their message.

  • After long pressing the message, press the three dots on the far right corner of the screen, two options will then appear, 'Reply privately and Message sender.' Choose the reply privately option.

  • Input your message as you normally would, then hit the send button and it's done. Just like that.

Once you reply to a group message privately, the conversation will be located in a separate conversation page away from the group chat itself. The recipient can decide to keep the conversation private by posting his or her replies within that chat page. Users will need to be careful. If you accidentally reply publicly instead of privately, you might get yourself in a bit of an awkward situation.
