Whatsapp Beta 2.18.12 now brings the mentions notifications

Whatsapp has been bringing a lot of features lately, and one of them is the new mentions feature, which will notify you when someone in Whatsapp group chat mentions you, followed by some message. This feature was first introduced in 2016, but now it’s been again in testing with Whatsapp beta version 2.18.12.

You can use this feature in a group chat by just using prefixing your message with “@” then typing the name of the contact and writing your message, which now sends an alert to that contact in its notification bar, which when tapped, will take that person to that particular mentioned message. This is super helpful as now you don’t have to hunt around tho…
