Find Contact Information of Group Participant on Whatsapp

Posted February 17, 2018 by Sheraz Ali in Instant messaging, Smartphone

The Whatsapp group feature enables one person to share messages, videos and photos with up to 265 people at once. It is making its way into the social media app market, contributing (with the help of other features, of course) to Whatsapp’s surging popularity. The additional features of Whatsapp Group like naming and customizing the group have made the experience all the more fun for Whatsapp users.

Whatsapp group feature is gaining popularity with such rapid pace that it won’t be too long before other social media apps follow in its footsteps.

Many a times, it seems like a hassle to go to the information of a contact who is also a participant of a Whatsapp Group. Maybe you do not have enough time to open your contact list and skim all the way down until you find that contact. Maybe you have multiple contacts with the same name; typing it out in the contact search bar and then finding that one specific contact is a tedious process. Or maybe someone has just added you in a Whatsapp Group and you wish to see the contact information of your fellow group members. Whatever your reason(s) is, viewing participant contact information from a group chat can come in quite handy.

Whatsapp inventors did not set out to make just another cliché social media messaging app. Their goal was to make one that is different than its competitors. Has it achieved that goal? The numerous Whatsapp features that are shortcuts for longer task functions (for example, swiping a group chat towards the left to delete its messages or some other task instead of opening the chat and selecting every message for deletion) will tell you that yes, Whatsapp has achieved that goal indeed. Finding contact information of a group participant on Whatsapp is also one of those features which have a shortcut to its execution.

There are, of course, some added benefits of opening contact profiles straight from the group of which they are a participant of. If you want to message that same user, you can simply do so by opening up their contact information from the group itself. The second, perhaps the most significant benefit of this is that if you have accidentally removed a contact from your Whatsapp contact list, you can simply go to the group they are a participant of, open the participants list and add them again from there. It can thus be deduced that such shortcuts on Whatsapp not only save you time, but at times can also redeem mistakes committed on your part.

    at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to get viewers
    interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or
    two to grab readers excited about everything’ve
    written. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
