It is necessary to get the attention of someone in a crowded group of WhatsApp chat? Now you can type @ and get someone attention from your WhatsApp group easily.
Tagging your friend will received the notification about your message on their phones, even in a group chat where they’ve muted.
It’s like Facebook and in chat rooms like Slack’s approach, where typing @ and the friend’s name displays a list of matching names to choose from.
This function works in the new update for iOS and Android applications, but does not work on the Web client yet.
In this update, WhatsApp also increase the maximum number of people in the chat group members from 100 to 256, so that the labeling function can be useful as the group get crowded.
