This feature of Whatsapp has been added Android beta version of 2.18.335 but it has been recommended by experts to wait for 2.18.336 or 2.18.337 update for trying the feature as current version crashes when the users try to delete the media in chat.

To be able to use this feature, you have to open the group chat and select a contact. It will open the options for you. You have to tap on the “Reply privately” option. After doing this, WhatsApp will open a private chat window where the users can text the contact.

Whatsapp’s Vice President, Chris Daniels has also confirmed that they are going to add the advertisement feature in Whatsapp status. This seems like the first step taken by Whatsapp for monetization and it will give an opportunity for business to reach people on WhatsApp.

Whatsapp didn’t provide any specific dates that when is the feature of advertisements coming to the WhatsApp but it will result in a boost in the app’s revenue but for the users, it may be a little bit annoying, the advertisements.
