How do I use a Broadcast List?

With the Broadcast List feature you can send a message to several of your friends at once.

Broadcast Lists are saved lists of message recipients that you can repeatedly send broadcast messages to, without having to select them each time.

Creating a Broadcast List

To create a Broadcast List:

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Go to the Chats screen > More.
  3. Tap Broadcast Lists.
  4. Tap + or Add List > Tap + to choose recipients from your contact list > Done.
  5. Tap Create.

To send a broadcast message simply tap the Broadcast List that you created > Type the message > Tap Send.

Note: Only contacts who have added you to their phone contacts list will receive your broadcast message. If your contact is not getting your broadcasts, check to make sure they have added you to their contacts.

Editing a Broadcast List

To edit a Broadcast List:

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Go to the Chats screen > Tap More.
  3. Tap Broadcast Lists.
  4. Tap the Broadcast List you want to edit.
  5. Tap the name of the Broadcast List on the top of the screen to open the info screen. In the list Info screen, you can:
    • Change the name of your Broadcast List.
    • Add or remove recipients from the list.
