WhatsApp adds 6 new features to Groups to bolster user's experience

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. Group creators can now add a group description when creating a group, allowing them to show participants a short blurb that describes the goal, guidelines, or topics for the group.

These features are available for Android and iPhone users today.

Chat platform WhatsApp is giving groups a makeover with a list of new features for group conversations. That description will show up at the top of the chat when a new person joins the group.

Kerch Bridge is another violation of Ukraine's sovereignty
The opening of the bridge comes a day before general traffic will be allowed. Ukraine said the move showed cynical disregard for global law.

However, perhaps the most handy feature is the new "group catch up" tool, which will help users keep track of active groups, while they're away. It will be interesting to see how this new change affects the flow of discussion in larger groups. Now in group settings, admins can now restrict who can change the group's subject, icon, and description. There are also people coming together in groups on WhatsApp like new parents looking for support, students organising study sessions, and even city leaders coordinating relief efforts after natural disasters.

Banning automatically created WhatsApp group chat rooms is definitely warranted, but the fact that a bunch of innocent groups were caught in the crossfire is definitely upsetting a significant portion of the user base. To check new features, however, you have to make sure that running the latest updated app.

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. This should solve your daily conundrum with family WhatsApp Groups.

Kvitova outlasts Bertens to triumph in Madrid

WhatsApp introduced mention '@' feature for group chats back in 2016. Also called "group catch up", the feature lets users find those messages in which they have been mentioned, or those messages that reply to them.

Another welcome feature is that now WhatsApp has added a feature that would protect you from being repeatedly added to groups you left. That information can now be found by searching for participants on the group info page.
