New Delhi, Sep 21: WhatsApp has finally added a new feature in Group Chats which will make it more user-friendly and specific.
WhatsApp users can now tag individuals in a group chat. For people caught in a big family or office groups, this might be a useful way of communicating with one particular person. The feature has gone live on Android and iOS as well.
