Whatsapp Now Allows you to tag someone in a Group Chat

Note: This is different from the ability to quote messages.

WhatsApp has now added the ability for users in group chats to tag other participants in the group (like in slack, or on Facebook and twitter), so they receive a notification even if they’ve muted the conversation. The feature works on Android and iOS version of the popular instant messaging app.

For someone like myself who is in over 150 groups on whatsapp, I’m not so excited about this. However, this update should have a good effect on productivity on the app.

You can tag more than one person in a post

To tag someone, simply enter the ‘@’ symbol, followed by their name; you can choose a contact from the menu that pops up. You can tag multiple contacts in a single message. It also works with contacts that you haven’t saved to your address book, but are part of the same group chat as you.

Clicking on a tagged name in a conversation will take you directly to the participant’s profile.
