 WhatsApp is reported to be one of the most popular social media apps in India. Users of the program can send documents, photos, videos, and text messages. WhatsApp is accessible on the iOS and Android operating systems.

The app is quickly taking the role of SMS as our main form of communication. With the goal of providing users with an improved experience, WhatsApp has continued to add new features throughout time. 

The app added a feature that allows users to discreetly respond to messages sent in group conversations last year. Members of the group can develop personal connections with one another thanks to this wonderful function.

You might want to respond to messages privately in a one-on-one chat if you receive a lot of them on WhatsApp Groups. 

Users of WhatsApp can carry out this activity without having to locate the one-on-one conversation they are having with that specific user. In a one-on-one chat, only the designated recipient will be able to see your private reply.
