WhatsApp launches new Groups features

WhatsApp Gets New Group Features, Including Descriptions, Mentions, and Admin Controls

WhatsApp Groups will now have group descriptions, which are short bios that describe what the group is about in relation to its guidelines or topics discussed. The new group chat features are rolling out now worldwide to both iOS and Android users with the latest versions of their respective apps. All the new features will be applicable to new and existing groups. That description will show up at the top of the chat when a new person joins the group.

Groups on WhatsApp have taken a central role in the messaging service that has more than 1 billion users, helping connect people with similar interests across the globe. This is important since people have abused this severally where you leave a Group chat and you are added back, which can be annoying.

The company stated that chat groups are an important part of the WhatsApp experience, and it has made a decision to implement improvements to the functionality.

Six new features have been added to WhatsApp Group. This should solve your daily conundrum with family WhatsApp Groups. In an expansion of the organization and administrative tools for the app, leaders will be able to restrict which members can change a group's icon and description as well as determine which users have administrative permissions. WhatsApp is also adding a participant search tool, which makes finding individuals easier.

Group catch up: One of the most demanded features in Groups was a way to find out whether someone called you out at some point and you can straight dive into it. Tapping on the symbol will allow members to see all messages that mention them since their last visit to the group, or reply to a previous message that they sent.

Participant search:Find anyone in a group by searching for participants on the group info page.

Another welcome feature is that now WhatsApp has added a feature that would protect you from being repeatedly added to groups you left.

Admins also can remove admin permissions from other participants and in a welcome change, group creators cannot be removed from the group they started.
