This time, information comes in from WABetaInfo, who tweeted about a new feature that will be introduced by WhatsApp in its future releases. The feature explained here is an option to mention people in chats. Similar to how you use it on Twitter with the ‘@’ symbol before a name, you can also mention people in chats with other people.
As for now, it is not yet clear how this will function. Will the person mentioned in the chat also receive the same message? Or will it be as usual, but the recipient will be able to get the contact’s details automatically on the chat message?
Additionally, as mentioned earlier, the same source also tweeted another screenshot which reveals that WhatsApp will roll out the feature of link-based group invites.
