WhatsApp Revamps Group Chats With New Tools

WhatsApp Revamps Group Chats With New Tools

In a statement, WhatsApp said "Groups have been an important part of the WhatsApp experience, whether it's family members connecting across the globe or childhood friends staying in touch over the years".

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 feature will allow WhatsApp to rival the likes of Skype, but we don't know when it'll be rolling out to the wider user base.

In addition to this change for WhatsApp group chat, the service is also launching a new feature called Catch Up - allowing users to see a quick recap of messages that have mentioned or replied to you since you've been away. Some of the new features include better admin control, participant search, group catch up, and more. The new features are going to be of particular interest to larger groups, but it will appeal to smaller groups of chatters as well.

WhatsApp gave examples of how come together in groups on WhatsApp like new parents looking for support, students organising study sessions, and city leaders coordinating relief efforts after natural disasters.

Admin controls: In group settings, there is now a control that allows admins to restrict who can change the group's subject, icon, and description. WhatsApp Groups can have as many as 256 people and this will make this easy to do.


Have you received the new WhatsApp update yet?

Another feature being added to WhatsApp group chat is a change that makes it impossible to remove a Group creator from groups that they started - according to the company in a recent blog post.

WhatsApp already has some nifty features which lets you remain in a group but at the same time avoid all the commotion it can become.

WhatsApp introduced mention '@' feature for group chats back in 2016.

Participant search: This new feature will let you find anyone in a group by searching for participants on the group info page.

Protection: What has also introduced protection so users can not be repeatedly added to groups they have left.
