Android Police has described well about this feature:
You see a Reply button at the top of the screen among the different options to delete and star and forward. Tap it and the quoted message will show up as a preview on top of the text entry box where you can add your reply. You can tap the x button to remove the quote if you change your mind.
Once you’ve sent your reply, it will show up inside the conversation with the original quoted message attached on top of it, along with the sender’s color-coded name. This should work super well in group chats where each participant gets a specific color. Anyone can tap that attached quote to move to the corresponding message quickly: WhatsApp scrolls up automatically and highlights it in blue then lets it fade away. That’s nice if you want to recall in which context a certain message was sent.
