Hi,

To copy a message, make a long press on it and choose the copy option. If this doesn't work, try the following steps to try to fix the issue:
  • Restart your phone.
  • Clear WhatsApp's cache (for Android). Go to Settings > Apps > WhatsApp > Storage.
  • Update WhatsApp to the latest version.
  • Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp : before doing so, create a backup of your data. In WhatsApp, select the 3 dots and go to Settings > Chats > Chat backup > Back up.


If the issue persists, a workaround is to choose to share the chat conversation by email and from the attached file, you can copy the text.
