Moreover, people make WhatsApp groups for business purposes. These groups also helps students to organize study sessions, and even city leaders to coordinate relief efforts after natural disasters. Today, we are going to share new features that have been introduced to groups.
New Improvements for WhatsApp Groups
- Group description: In new update, you can see a short blurb found under group info that let you set the purpose, guidelines, or topics for the group. The description will show up at the top of the chat when a new person joins a group.
- Admin controls: Admin control allows admins to restrict who can change the group’s subject, icon, and description.
- Group catch up: When you have been away from a group chat, quickly catch up on messages that mention or reply to you by tapping on a new @ button that appears at the bottom right corner of the chat.
- Participant search: This new feature allows you to find anyone in a group by searching for participants on the group info page.
Now admins can remove admin permissions of other group participants, and group creators can no longer be removed from the group they started.
These features are available for Android and iPhone users.
