Earlier, when people needed to send a big message, announcement, or invite to a large number of people, they used to send them emails. However, e-mails are quickly getting outdated, with its biggest competitor being WhatsApp.
With WhatsApp’s more convenient messaging process and informal style, more and more people are signing up on the platform every day. In return, WhatsApp keeps adding newer, more innovative features to the platform from time to time.
One such feature that was recently added to WhatsApp is the WhatsApp broadcasting messages feature. Today, we’ll talk about an error message on that feature (Broadcast message not delivered).
If you are a new user on WhatsApp, then all of this must sound very confusing to you. Don’t worry; we’re here to help you. In today’s blog, we’ve also discussed how the WhatsApp broadcast messaging feature works and how to send out a broadcasted message on WhatsApp.
How Do Whatsapp Broadcast Messages Works?
Let us suppose that you are in charge of organizing your monthly office party and are running really late. Your most important problem at hand is: you don’t have any time left to send invites to all of your co-workers. So, what will you do? How can you make sure that you send them all invites before you run out of time?
Lucky for you, WhatsApp has come to your rescue with a feature called broadcasting messages.
You can create a broadcast of all the people to whom you need to send the invites, and you’ll be able to do it at once! Doesn’t that sound easy?
All you’ll have to do is make a WhatsApp broadcast list, add all your co-workers to it, and write an invite. When you click on send, all of your co-workers will receive the message at once. And you know what the best part is? No one in your broadcast list will ever find out that they’ve received a broadcasted message unless they search for it on your phone.
Why Broadcast Message Not Delivered on Whatsapp?
If your Broadcast message wasn’t delivered to a few contacts, don’t panic. There are a couple of reasons why something like this might happen. Let’s talk about them so that you can get a clear-cut solution to your problem.
1. They Haven’t Saved Your Number in Their Contact
As we’ve already mentioned before, if the person on the receiving end hasn’t saved your number in their contact list, then they won’t receive your message.
All you need to do is simply ask them to check if they’ve saved your number. And even if they didn’t receive the broadcast message, you can easily forward the message to 4-5 people without any hassle.
2. They’ve Blocked You on Whatsapp
If you’re sure that your number is saved on their phone, then there can only be one other reason: they’ve blocked you on WhatsApp, unknowingly or otherwise.
If you really need to get that invite to them, you can either call them and tell them about your situation or ask a co-worker to share the invite with them.
Can I Delete Whatsapp Broadcast Message for Everyone?
Let us imagine that you sent a broadcast message to 50 people, but you accidentally typed in the wrong date. If you’re pressed for time, you might think to simply unsend the message from the broadcast and send them the correct one again.
However, you’ll be barking up the wrong tree because it’s not possible for you to delete a broadcast message for everyone at once on WhatsApp. If you absolutely need to delete that message before everyone sees it, you’ve no option other than unsending the message from every recipient’s chat one by one.
If the message has a simple spelling or factual error, then you can simply edit the message and send it out again with a small apology at the bottom. Doesn’t that sound much more convenient?
Moreover, to avoid such a thing happening to you again, remember to always check and recheck a broadcast message before sending it out.
WhatsApp has a feature called broadcasting messages, using which you can send the same messages to up to 256 people at once. It’s usually used for invites, announcements, and important information. There are two reasons why you’re seeing the WhatsApp broadcast message not delivered, and we’ve told you how you could fix both.
