WhatsApp has added a new feature for users in group chats where they can tag other participants.

Once you are tagged, you will receive a notification even if you’ve muted the conversation.

Currently, the feature works on Android and iOS.

You also have the ability to tag multiple contacts in a single message. To tag someone, use the ‘@’ symbol, followed by their name.

The good thing is that the feature works with contacts that you haven’t saved to your address book, but are part of the same group chat as you.
