You are not limited to sending messages to one person at a time. You can send messages to many people at the same time using the following trick without creating WhatsApp Group.

Send a broadcast message:

A broadcast message is a message that is sent out to a large number of people at once on the same channel. It is typically used for rapid and short messages like word of caution, announcements, and emergencies. The most common form of broadcast messages are on station’s public service announcements. A broadcast message is best used for spreading quick and short messages like word of caution, announcements, and emergencies.

  1. To send a broadcast message, you need to tap on the ‘+’ button on the top of your screen and then tap on ‘broadcast’.
  2. Scroll down and type in your message. Tap on ‘next’ and select all contacts that you want to send this message to.
  3. Press ‘done’ after you have selected all of them.
  4. Tap on ‘send’ when you are ready or hit cancel if you change your mind.

When sending a broadcast message to the group, the message will be routed to each contact in your phonebook for them to see. When they reply, it won’t be routed back to everyone on the broadcast list like a traditional ‘reply all.’
