The various Social Media  apps and sites we subscribe to regularly add new features to make our experience with them worthwhile. Even though some of these features are added silently, their effects are felt.

WhatsApp has quietly added the ability for users in group chats to tag other participants, so they receive a notification even if they’ve muted the conversation. The feature works on Android and iOS, but not on the desktop app.

When using WhatsApp, simply enter the ‘@’ symbol, followed by their name to tag them in a group chat; 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.

WhatsApp has previously improved by adding various features like replying to specific messages by quoting them and also increasing their group membership limit from 100 to 256.

What do you think about this new feature? Is it great or it should be scrapped? Remember, you saw it here first!
