Copying and pasting messages on WhatsApp can be a bit complicated, since the option to “copy” is hidden in the application options menu for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones. The action selects all the text contained in a message to save it in the clipboard of the smartphone and, later, to pass it on to another application with the option to edit text.
It is also possible to copy and paste the message into WhatsApp itself to send it in another conversation. The messenger does not inform that the text has been copied, nor does he inform that the message is a replica. Check out the following tutorial on how to copy and paste on WhatsApp from your Android phone and iPhone.
