Updates upon updates to ease usability on the app, recent WhatsApp updates have added a quoting feature that allows you quote messages, pictures or images on private and group chats, those using BBM messenger should know what am talking about.
The new quoting feature on Whatsapp allows you to reply someone’s message by pointing at a previous message (s)he had sent, be it picture, video or text based messages.
