WhatsApp is a fun Application used to converse with family, friends, and relatives. If you are a tech-oriented person or an inquisitive person, you will know that WhatsApp has so many features that make it outstanding. In this article, I will show you a WhatsApp trick that you are going to love. You will learn how to create a group on Whatsapp.

Talking about the top 3 best Android, or IOS chatting Apps without mentioning WhatsApp would be a sick joke. WhatsApp is home to billions of users around the globe. My best part of WhatsApp is its features that aid chatting. Some months ago I wrote on how to use WhatsApp quote reply, an awesome feature that was embedded in WhatsApp sometime last year.

I, however, noticed that some people still find it difficult to create a group on WhatsApp. Due to that fact, I had to pick up my laptop and start writing.

Moving on;

Groups are essential on WhatsApp. Don’t mistake groups for a broadcast list, these are two different things entirely. A group is basically an online room where you can chat and share information with friends or family. A group has lots of features. You can remove and add as many people as you want (that’s if you are the admin of the group).

A broadcast list, on the other hand, is just a list of numbers in no particular other. A broadcast list saves stress. You can send a particular message like (My Party starts at 5 pm) to 100 numbers on your broadcast list without having to send the message to the recipients individually. A WhatsApp broadcast list is almost the same as a WhatsApp group, but there’s still a huge difference. In a broadcast list, when people reply you, you will receive the messages directly.

Okay, enough about the WhatsApp broadcast list.

WhatsApp groups can be a great way to connect certain people together.

How?

Uhm, here are some examples. Let’s say you are a teacher in a school and you don’t want to go through the hassle of creating a website for students to take assignments and announcements, you could open a WhatsApp group and add all students to that group for announcements, test and just about anything.

Another example is If you want to connect your extended family together. All you have to do is, make sure the phone numbers of your family members are on your mobile device, create a group on WhatsApp and add all numbers to the group. A great name for a nuclear family group could be ”The Johnsons”, and a name for an extended family group could be ”One BIG Family”

Just saying! LOL
