A WhatsApp bug prevents you from writing in groups


WhatsApp continues to cause headaches for users and the latter is driving many people crazy trying to find out why suddenly unable to type in your group chats, whereas there is no problem doing so in conversations with a single recipient. Without knowing exactly the cause, many users are complaining on social networks without an official response from the instant messaging application owned by Facebook. We give you the details of the problem and a possible solution below.

Without an apparent cause this afternoon I was faced with the problem that I could not write in one of the group chats that I have on my WhatsApp, or rather, I could write but my messages did not arrive as you can see in the header image . I could read the messages and the notifications reached me perfectly, but I could not get any of my messages to be sent. In other groups this did not happen to me, nor in private conversations. It did not matter if it was with WiFi or 4G network, and I also did not manage to solve it with a restart of the iPhone or by asking to be expelled from the group and then re-admitted. I even removed the app and reinstalled it, but to no avail.

Searching through social networks I found many people with the same problem, and I found the solution: send voice messages. Even though I couldn't send written messages yes it allowed me to send voice messages, and after sending a couple of messages of this type the surprise was that suddenly I could write without problems, sending my messages perfectly. At the moment the problem has not reappeared in that or in any other group. Have you suffered the problem? Has the same solution worked for you?

    More than failure, I see it as a good idea or functionality that they could implement for group administrators, and thus moderate "tired" participants.

      I was afraid that they had blocked me in the group or silenced, but it was not like that.

      Restart by pressing the Home button and the On / Off button for 10 seconds until the apple logo reappears ... if this is not solved, download it from an iOS 9.1 website and re-install it from iTunes updating it not restoring it, it is very simple, in this same page there are tutorials on how to do it ... if this is not solved do the same by restoring it from iTunes.

      Regarding whatsapp ... it is true ... enough of continuous criticism, we already know that you are angry with them because they do not update you at the rate you would like but from there to say that it is a bad app there is a long way !!!

      Your device, iPhone 6, is under warranty. Use it and have Apple fix it for you.

        It happens to me that I do not receive group messages. Even if they remove me and include me again, I do not receive messages. Not so with personals. I do not know how to do.

    Hello, I am or I was talking to a friend on WhatsApp and from one moment to another my messages for her do not come out, they stay on the clock and she writes to me and I can read them but I cannot answer because they do not come

      To my tb they kept the little clock, the messages began to arrive again, although slow, first with the little clock, after deleting some photos (I had few) and emptying the caches

    In my case, on an iPhone 11 what I did was reboot the phone and it worked again.

  13.   Fernando said

    I sent a voice message, he didn't leave. It gives the same problem.

    I have the same problem, I can only send messages in individual chats. In groups I only receive but I cannot send even if I am the group administrator.

  17.   Yahaira said

    Help, I can not write in WhatsApp groups, when I try to do so, he barely pressed the first key, he takes me out of the chat immediately, he does not let me send audios, neither searching in the group information, nor leaving a group and re-entering, It just won't let me write a single letter, but in individual chats I can chat normally.
