WhatsApp Quick Reply Is Now Available For iOS 9.1 iPhone

iPhone users have one more reason to update to Apple’s latest firmware as they will get iOS 9.1 WhatsApp Quick Reply functionality on their iDevices. Once installed, this handy feature will let you immediately respond to messages straight away from the notification without the need to open the application.

Apple has first introduced Quick Reply with iOS 8 firmware release. First this feature was only available to Apple’s own Messages app. But with the release of iOS 9, the Cupertino company already allowed third-party messaging apps, such as Facebook Messenger and Skype, to make use of Quick Reply feature.

Not so long ago, iOS 9.1 was launched for compatible devices, bringing with it a set of new emojis, making messaging more entertaining, enhancements for Live Photos, stability improvements and fixes for some bugs. With this update Apple has also patched exploits for Pangu 9 jailbreak. The iOS 9.1 is deemed as the third update that has been released for iOS 9.0.

Happily WhatsApp does support Quick Reply option now — but only for iOS 9.1 running iPhones. Only updating to this release you will activate the feature, which isn’t available in earlier iOS releases even if you have the latest WhatsApp version installed.

In case you’ve already upgraded to iOS 9.1, and Quick Reply isn’t working with WhatsApp yet, follow the below steps to fix this issue:

Step 1. Ensure that you have exited the WhatsApp app

Step 2. Now open the multitasking UI and then you need to force close the WhatsApp app

Step 3. Reopen WhatsApp

The next time you get a WhatsApp message, you should be able to reply from the notification.
Those users who are not going to update to Apple’s latest public update yet because they want to keep their jailbreak can grab a tweak like WAQuickReply to set iOS 9.1 WhatsApp Quick Reply feature with earlier versions of mobile operating system.
