WhatsApp allows users to send the direct message to many people at once thanks to a feature called Broadcast Lists. While some people may argue that they can send a message to many people at one go in group chat as well, so why they need Broadcast Lists? Well, when you message people who are in the Broadcast Lists, the message is sent directly to them, and when they reply, you receive their message personally unlike group chat.
You can easily create broadcast lists in WhatsApp on your iPhone. Even better, you can add, remove people and comfortably manage the list. What’s more, you can add up to 256 people in one list. Let me show you how it works!
