WhatsApp beta for Android 2.18.335: what’s new?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

WhatsApp has recently submitted a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.18.335 version.
Let’s find out together what is new ..



This version crashes when you try to delete a media in the chat.
We don’t recommend to update to the 2.18.335 version but you should wait the 2.18.336/337 update.


WhatsApp has finally enabled in this beta update a new feature called Reply privately. As the name suggests, it allows to privately reply a message received in a group.

When you tap Reply privately, WhatsApp will automatically open the private chat with the contact:

Note that you can also use this feature to privately reply old messages in a group where the Send messages feature is on “Only administrators”.
The feature also works when the group was closed.
Note again that the feature is officially enabled in this 2.18.335 update! 🙂
