WhatsApp - the free instant messaging mobile application has revolutionised the social media. It helps us connect with our friends and family members and allows us to send instant messages. Over the years, WhatsApp has evolved a lot and its professional use has also increased drastically with most offices having a dedicated group for internal communication between employees and sharing information. It became a lot easier with the group chat feature in which one can create a dedicated group and add around 250 members for mass communication of the information. However, one problem we often face is unwanted messages in the WhatsApp groups…..comments that are not relevant for the majority members. For example, one of the group members in your office has a birthday and people start flooding the group with wishes and greetings. This often leads to missing relevant information shared in the group. But do you know there a feature to avoid this unnecessary cluttering? Off course you must wish people on their birthdays or send greetings on festivals but there is another way. WhatsApp gives you an option to reply privately to a particular group message and no one would know only except the person you are replying.

Step 3- Select the reply privately option.   

Step 4 – Now type whatever you want to write and send. The message will not be seen in the group but only by the person whose message you just replied.
