WhatsApp launches new Groups features

Most of these new WhatsApp group features have been seen in prior Android beta builds, stable builds on either platform, or have been spotted in development but were disabled by default.

WhatsApp has been pretty busy this year, rolling out with new features frequently. To check new features, however, you have to make sure that running the latest updated app. 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.

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

"When a new person joins a group, the description will show up at the top of the chat", the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.

These features are available for Android and iPhone users today.

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 has also made it easier for people to search for group participants online. Some of the new features include better admin control, participant search, group catch up, and more. To find these messages, WhatsApp group users will only have to tap the @ button that now appears at the bottom-right corner of the chat.

Inside the group info page, members can now search for other group participants. New settings will now allow admins to restrict who can change the group's icon, subject, and description. Lastly, WhatsApp says that users can not repeatedly rejoin groups that they have previously 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.

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