So in a group conversation when a message is quoted there is automatically allotment of color given to every participant of the group. This is amazing as we get to know easily whether the same person is quoting it. The quoted message though appears in light grey color and there is a color line on left hand side of the message.

Interesting part is that you can quote anyone in the chat also including your own messages including media messages. So you can refer to an earlier message in case of any reference.

How to test and try out this feature?

Well this feature is available for WhatsApp 2.16.118 Beta users only. Though don`t get surprised if you see it in earlier versions of whatsapp where they are trying the server side switch flipping.

The user can get their hands on this feature right away by downloading the APK mirror of this app or join the Play Store beta to avail this version of WhatApp which is still in beta(testing) phase.
