That’s why it’s more convenient to wish all your friends and family happy new year via WhatsApp at once. That almost always works, and you can quickly continue partying! You do this with the help of a mailing list. The recipient will not notice this and it will seem as if you are sending a personal message. You can read how to do that below.

Send a New Year’s greeting in WhatsApp to several people

  1. Open WhatsApp, tap ‘Chats’ and scroll up;
  2. Tap on ‘Mailings’, ‘New List’ and select the people you want to send the New Year’s greetings to;
  3. Tap ‘Create’ and you can type your New Year’s greeting in the text box;
  4. Tap the arrow to send the greeting to your mailing list.
