How to quote someone on WhatsApp. If you are part of a WhatsApp group chat, the conversation can move quickly. Put your phone down for an hour or two and you can easily come back and see 100 more messages about the group. Normally this is fine, but if you have an important point to make or need to answer a question that has been asked a long time ago by someone, you can't just answer it without confusing everyone. For this the function of messages with people mentioned on Whatsapp is useful.



When you quote a message on WhatsApp, you attach the original message to the new one. This makes it very easy for everyone to know what you are talking about. Here's how to do it.

Its an iPhone

On an iPhone, find the message you want to quote and drag it to the right.

This attaches the selected message to your new message, which you can then send as normal.

On an Android phone

On an Android phone, touch and hold the message you want to quote until it is selected.

Then tap the left pointing arrow to attach the selected message to the new message.

Write your reply, then send your message as normal.

Mentioning someone on WhatsApp isn't just useful for group messages. It also works in one-on-one conversations, in case you need to recall a previous message or want to attach information you've previously sent, such as an address or phone number, without having to type it again.
