WhatsApp has announced the rollout of a new version both for the Android and iOS users across the world. The new version comes with a lot of peculiar features for groups. Earlier, we have seen many of these group features in Android beta builds, stable builds, and also in developmental stages. One of the most attractive group features that this update is bringing is the group description. This means that admin, creator, or any of the group members can add a description of the group. This description will show the participants a blurb about the aim, the guideline, and the topics for the group. Any of the group members can change the description of the group. However, the admin can restrict the group members from doing so.
The update also brings group control feature for the admin. This feature enables admin to select any of the group members or all to change the subject and icon of the group. Admin can now also remove the admin permission of other group members. Here, one thing very important is that the other group admin cannot remove the creator of the group from it.
The company has also added the mention feature in this update. This feature enables the participants to search for the messages that have their names. Also, this feature allows the group members to sort out the messages sent directly to any of the members as a reply. This ‘catch up’ button will appear at the bottom right corner of the chat. By clicking the button, the users can enjoy this feature.
The company has also added a group info feature in this new update. Through this feature, they can search for the participants in the group.
