WhatsApp for Android received an update that frees up the option to quickly respond to incoming messages. Available only in Beta 2.18.300, the update adds a shortcut to make it easier to use the quote feature and streamlines the conversation in groups and with friends. The iPhone version (iOS) already has the shortcut.
So far, the official version of the Android app has not yet received the quick response shortcut. So be sure to have the updated version of WhatsApp Beta on your smartphone. To test the feature, we use a Moto C Plus with Android Nougat (7.0). Here's how to drag messages into WhatsApp.
