A new feature awaited by many WhatsApp users has finally reached the version of the application on iOS: the sending of private responses in groups.
The feature had already reached the Android devices under test since November.
With this new feature, WhatsApp now allows you to respond privately to only one member within the group. While on Android the option is called “respond in private”, iPhone users can respond using the “message to (contact)” tool. Just keep your finger pressed in the message for a few seconds for the option to appear.
The idea of the tool is to pull a private conversation from a subject started in the group. That is, when replying in private mode, the original message also appears in the private conversation, which is not sent to the rest of the group.
You can respond privately even to groups where only administrators can send messages.
The private response is yet another feature that the tool has brought to improve your user experience. News such as Picture-in-Picture mode had already arrived in the Web version and Desktop and video calls in groups on iOS have been added recently. You can even play games like Uno and Jogo da Velha .
