The reports from @WABetaInfor confirm that the developers wrongly enabled the feature. WABetaInfo tweeted “In the new WhatsApp beta for Windows Phone 2.17.344 the private reply feature is disabled. Probably WhatsApp has wrongly enabled it in 2.17.342”. However, the feature was again enabled in the v2.17.348 beta update.

WABetaInfor says that the Private reply feature will pop up whenever user press and hold on a message during group chats. They can directly send them a private message without switching the chat box. However, the feature is still in development phase and will be rolled out with other features as well.

Earlier this month, WABetaInfo also shared some details regarding WhatsApp web version. WhatsApp Web and desktop version is about to get PIP (Picture-in-picture) mode and tap to unblock feature soon. So, what do you think about this? Share your views in the comment box below.
