Whatsapp allows to create diffusion lists, useful tool at this time of the year in which we send messages of good wishes to our contacts. This option allows you to share the same message to all users, without having to write them one by one. With the broadcast lists you can send the same text up to 250 contacts at a time.
With this function WhatsApp allows users to avoid forwarding the message. In addition, the Facebook-owned application will also limit message forwarding to five chats in all countries of the world. Initially, the limit was 20 chats but the platform restricted the option because of the serious cases of lynchings occurred on account of fake strings diffused in WhatsApp.
To create a broadcast list, go to the three-point main menu located at the top right and choose the ‘ new Broadcast ‘ option. Then you will see the whole list of contacts. You must choose the people you want to add to your list and then press the Green Confirmation button located on the lower right side.
You can enter each list and put a name or later add to other contacts. Please note that users will not be notified when they are added to a list, but the recipient must have their phone number saved in the contact book to receive the messages. Once you have created the list, you will have the option to change the background, create a shortcut, edit the recipients or delete it whenever you want.
