WhatsApp adds new private reply option, advanced 3D Touch support for iPhones
Two months ago, news about a new feature that WhatsApp was testing emerged online – the option to privately reply to someone in a group chat. However, our report only mentioned the feature was meant to be brought to Android users first since this is the platform that WhatsApp was testing it for.

Well, it looks like iPhone users have just received the new feature in the latest update. According to the changelog, WhatsApp now allows iOS users to reply to a group message privately in a 1:1 chat. Simply tap and hold a message in a group chat and select More / Reply Privately.

Another brand new feature will enable iPhone users to take advantage of their device's 3D Touch function. From the Status tab, you'll now be able to 3D Touch to preview a contact's status.

Last but not least, WhatsApp makes it easier to add stickers when editing a photo or video by simply tapping the new smiley icon. All the new features mentioned are coming with WhatsApp v2.19.11, so look for this specific version in the App Store.
