Whatsapp Help
« on: December 30, 2021, 11:06:43 AM »
Like many here, i have lots of whatsapp groups that post lots of messages daily. The big issue i have, is if i am hundreds of messages behind, and reply to a message, my whatsapp group will automatically shoot down to the present, and i have to scroll up to try and figure out where I left off.

Is there any way for me to reply to a message, but prevent the messages from shooting down to the most recent (Android)?

Second, less important question - Is there a way to automatically add contacts in groups to "my contacts" on my phone, if that information is available?

I believe the best way is to search the words you responded too. Alternatively you can use WhatsApp web and your phone to hold the place.

When you first open the chat, star the first unread message. Use that as your bookmark - jump back by viewing starred messages and then unstar. When you want to reply again, rnse & repeat.

If you quote (I don't know what it's called in WhatsApp) the message your responding to you can then click on it to bring you back to that place.

I had a different issue that I usually don't read a few hundred messages at a time and once I open a chat and leave in middle it Mark's everything as read. But I guess the star trick would work for that

Swipe (right?) to reply.
