Quoted messages come finally to WhatsApp (at least for beta users)

When I woke up today and browsed through all my favorite blogs and sites, a new topic dominated very much: Quoted Messages in WhatsApp. Other messengers like Telegram already have this feature for a quite long time, but nevertheless: now the feature is here!

According to what I read it's available for users who have at least version 2.16.118 on Android, but received quoted messages may be visible for users on older versions too.

When you're on the WhatsApp version which has this features (here‘s how to get the latest beta via Google Play) and you want to try it out, first go to a chat and long click a message.

After that you have the possibility to write your own message. And when you sent it, it looks like this:

Feel free to play with the new version!

Other rumors and already partially activated features in WhatsApp are: video calling and GIF support and there's also a rumor about something with “bubbles”. We'll see soon…

News: The killer feature apparently has something to do with bubbles, replies and gestures. – WABetaInfo
