There are times when we wish to send a message to many people at once and forwarding them individually is an exhausting task specially when the list is huge. WhatsApp has provided a broadcast feature to enable the users to send a message to multiple people (who are not part of any one group) in a single shot.
Follow the simple steps mentioned below to use WhatsApp broadcast feature
Open WhatsApp and tap on menu, represented by 3 vertical dots.
Tap on ‘New broadcast’.
Now you have to select the recipients. You can either type their name or select from your contact list by taping ‘+’ sign. Once you are done adding recipients to your broadcast list, tap ‘DONE’.
Tap on ‘CREATE’ once you have finalized your list.
Type your message or attach files as you do and tap on Send button. The message will be broadcasted to the entire list.
Currently WhatsApp support 256 members per list. To send a message to more than 256 people you need to create another list.
To prevent spammers and advertisers to spam your inbox, WhatsApp has made a rule that only those recipients will receive your message who have saved your phone number in their phone’s address book.
We hope you have fun spreading your messages to a larger audience and save your time simultaneously while you avoid forwarding your texts individually.
