We have some amazing news for WhatsApp fans who love using the app. The developers who are in charge of WhatsApp have recently announced that a major update is coming and that it will include a bunch of features which are going to enhance group messaging. With that being said, let’s see what these new group messaging features are all about.
iOS and Android Update
The first thing we need to mention about this upcoming update is that it will be available for everyone. WhatsApp’s developers have confirmed that both iOS and Android users will be able to get their hands on it once the OTA (over the air) rollout begins.
WhatsApp is regarded as being the best messaging app in the world and the reason behind this is that WhatsApp is packed with tons of innovative features. One of those features is group messaging and this makes WhatsApp the ideal app for people who want to create groups in which they can talk with their friends, work colleagues or family members.
Nonetheless, group messaging is now being enhanced and this is surely going to help take WhatsApp’s services to the next level. Without any further ado, here are the new features:
- Group Description
The first feature that’s being added alongside this new update is group description. Group admins are going to be able to set descriptions to their private groups and this is going to prove to be quite useful for admins who love notifying their group participants about the latest news.
- Searching for Participants
WhatsApp users are going to be able to search for individual group participants after the new update arrives. This is a great feature because previously, users had to manually scroll through the list of participants and look for the person they want.
