Something interesting about WhatsApp revealed

Anyone not on the latest beta version can also receive these quote messages and they appear perfectly fine. Do you know what it Implies ? it implies that WhatsApp is capable to receive anything that is fed into its chat session , i used a very old WhatsApp version and even that displayed the quote perfectly fine. How can a version which never thought of displaying a quote message can still show ? . It means we can do any sort of formatting and feed it to the other side, only thing left figuring is “How” 😉

WhatsApp next beta launch will be the addition of “Reply to User” feature , it will allow users to tag members in a group chat by using the “@” sign as it is used in Facebook and Twitter. Video calling and GIF support is also in the pipeline.
