Hello. You are watching VisiHow, and in today's video, I'll show you how to create a broadcast list on WhatsApp while using iPhone 6.
Let's open WhatsApp by clicking on the icon.
For example, we need to send an informative message to all of the contacts on our list. What do we do? First of all, you need to tap on Broadcast Lists to open it.
Let's make a new one. First, tap on New List at the bottom center of your screen.
To create a broadcast list, you get to pick the contact members. Tap the plus sign at the top right corner to choose someone from your list of WhatsApp Contacts.
While on the Contacts screen, you can tap just to the left of each contact name to include them in your broadcast list. A blue check mark will appear just to the left of the contact. You can pick as many as you want from already existing favorites list, which consists of simply people who are saved on your phone and are using WhatsApp.
When you are finished choosing contacts, click Done at the bottom right corner of the screen.
I have quite a bit of people on my broadcast list. This is a special group connected by the interest, people that you get to pick.
In order to proceed with the broadcast list, you need to press Ready at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Now, the list is ready, so tap on Create at the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
On the next screen, tap on Lists at the top left corner of the screen.
On the Broadcast Lists screen, it shows that we have 8 people on our list. Tap on Recipients to open a new message using the keyboard that will pop up.
Let's say, "Get dressed warmer today, it's so cold out there." Let's just warn these people, so nobody gets sick.
When our message is ready, all we have to do is tap Send. Now, all of the people on our list will receive your message.
Let's tap on Broadcast Lists at the top left-hand corner to go back.
And we'll tap on Chats to go back one more screen.
You will see that your broadcast lists are not sitting together with your other chats and groups. In order to access them, you have to tap on the Broadcast Lists option at the top left.
If somebody decides to answer the message the received from you, you'll receive that message in a personal chat like this one at the top of my list of chats. You can tap on it to open up the message.
The broadcast message will be marked with a little picture on the left. That way you know that was a broadcast message sent to more than one person.
