How to quote posts on whatsapp

Quoting is used by Whatsapp users to reply to a favorite message. Or to answer in a group to a selected interlocutor, where, due to the large flow of messages, it is not always clear which one or another user is responding to.

The creators of Whatsapp have tried to simplify the functionality of the correspondence. You can send quoted text in a couple of seconds.

The features of citing a message are as follows:

  • the function works only on Android and iOS;
  • the use of this function makes it possible to quote text not only in a single correspondence, but also in groups;
  • the answer can be written in any language;
  • function applies only to texts or messages with emoji.

Methods for quoting chat messages for Android and iPhone systems are slightly different.

On Android

If on Android in “Vatsap” you need to quote the message in the same chat where it was written, you need to do the following steps:

  • Inside the selected chat, tap and hold the message until it is highlighted in blue.
  • Click on the top left arrow..
  • The copied quote appears above the message box..
  • Write the answer to the selected user and send it along with the selected quote.

To transfer the necessary information to another chat, you must:

  • Press and hold the desired message until it is highlighted in blue.
  • In the upper right corner of the screen, click on the arrow curved to the right.
  • In the window with contacts that opens, click on the account to which the quoted SMS will be sent. A green checkmark will appear on your account.
  • Tap the “Send” icon at the bottom right of the screen.
