ave you ever wondered if there was a way to send a public message privately in WhatsApp without having to share it with all your contacts and just forward it to a select group of people?

Well, WhatsApp offers you a feature which is relatively unknown and through which you can ask something to some of your friends without having to spend time doing so by messaging them separately.

This means that you can share a message by creating a reduced list of contacts through your WhatsApp application either on iOS or on Android.

The steps are quite straightforward, but they are a bit different for iOS and Android users, so we will explain the whole process, one which will take you just a few seconds, in two parts.
