WhatsApp has started rolling out the Quote Message features in the latest update. The version number of the latest update is v2.16.118.
This feature allows users to quote an earlier message from a conversation and reply to it, which makes sense considering users earlier had to copy and paste the message and then follow it up with another message.
Its quite a handy feature to use especially in group chats, when you have read the messages after a long time and want to reply to a message which was sent hours ago.
Earlier, WhatsApp was only making this feature available for a select few Beta users and after its successful testing, it has been rolled out for all.
To use this feature, you will have to long press on the message which you want to quote. On long pressing, you will see a reply button on top of your screen. Using the reply button you can use the Quote Message feature in WhatsApp.
