The leading messaging app, WhatsApp, launches new group chat features for iOS and Android operating systems. CNET reports that the new changes are to improve the link between the members of each conversation group. The four new features can be already be viewed after performing the respective updates in the application.
What are the new WhatsApp changes?
#1) Group Descriptions
This function as indicated by its name allows any member to place a brief explanation of the purpose of the group.
#2) Group member search
Another new feature allows you to search for participants by his or her name. You just have to go to group Information and there will be a section specifically for this.
#3) To catch up
If you are one of those people who leave your cell phone in silence and doesn't use it for a long time, this function will come in handy. When you are available to communicate with your friends, put an @ in the chat and you will know when and how many times you were mentioned. In addition, you can go directly to that message where you were named, instead of scrolling through the entire conversation.
#4) The administrator controls
Whoever has this role can now control the changes made by other members regarding the information of the group. On the other hand, you can delete the permissions of other administrators and if you were the one who created the chat, you can not delete it.
If you want to try the WhatsApp features, you're in luck because all are already available for both Android and iOS. All you need to do is update your app and voila!
