How to reply to individual messages in a Snapchat group chat

(Pocket-lint) – If you’ve ever been in a group chat on Snapchat, then you know how difficult it is to respond to individual messages – especially when there are several people talking all at once. Well, thanks to a new update, it’s finally a lot easier to reply to people in Snap chats.

Starting in January 2022, Snapchat is rolling out a major update to its Android and iOS apps that introduces new tools and features. Perhaps the most important of these new features is Chat Reply – as it finally allows you to respond to individual messages in an ongoing chat. 

How to use Chat Reply in a Snap chat

According to Snapchat, Chat Reply can help you “keep conversations on track and communicate with context”, because it allows you to circle back to a specific message in a group chat or any chat and start a thread. To use Chat Reply, simply hold down on a message and click reply. That’s it!
