    How to reply to a single person in a group on Whatsapp, the latest WhatsApp update (v.2.16.118) allows you to reply to specific individual messages in a group chat. Below you will find instructions for replying to individual messages on WhatsApp in a Group on both iPhone and Android.


    Previously there was no way to reply to individual messages within a group on WhatsApp and this caused quite a bit of confusion when we needed to reply to a single friend in our group.



    For example, let's say you checked your WhatsApp account and found a message in a group telling you that "Napoli won the Scudetto!". Ahe…! Of course, if you are Neapolitan it is easy to answer “Grande” or something similar in the group and close the phone.

    If, on the other hand, you are not Neapolitan and you want to reply to the message in private, you must follow the very simple guide below.


    How to reply to the single person in a group on Whatsapp

    Per iPhone:

    1. Open WhatsApp and go to the group with your iPhone.

    2. Next, long press or double tap on the particular message in the group chat you want to reply to.


    3. From the menu that appears at the top, tap Reply

    4. Next, type your reply to the message and tap Send

    I want to warn you that the rest of the group will also read the message you wrote to a single user. Up to here for iPhone!



    Per Android:



    1. Open WhatsApp and go to the group with your Android

    2. Next, tap and hold on the particular message you want to reply to.

    3. From the menu that appears at the top, tap Reply. On a small arrow that looks to the left.

    4. Next, type your reply to the message and tap the Send key.

    Since a particular message has been selected, the reply will appear in the context of the message you are replying to.
