New group chat features arrive on WhatsApp starting today

Six new features have been added to WhatsApp Group. As per the new updates, now, the company has added Group description, Admin controls, Group catch up and Participant search features to revamp Groups.

WhatsApp on Tuesday announced new features for groups, and said they are now rolling out to both Android and iPhone users with the latest versions of the stable apps.

The update comes after WhatsApp promised a new group video calling feature at the Facebook F8 conference last month.

The new version of the app for iOS and Android enables groups to add a description setting out the objective, guidelines and topics for the group chat. The description will be shared with each new member of the WhatsApp group chat - allowing those having a discussion to stay on topic. "There are also people coming together in groups on WhatsApp like new parents looking for support, students organizing study sessions, and even city leaders coordinating relief efforts after natural disasters". New settings will now allow admins to restrict who can change the group's icon, subject, and description. This should solve your daily conundrum with family WhatsApp Groups.

Following are the key features that have been added to revamp WhatsApp Group chat. WhatsApp Groups can have as many as 256 people and this will make this easy to do. 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.

Find anyone in a group by searching for participants on the group info page.

Several WhatsApp for Android Beta users might have already received this feature but it is only now being made available for all - Admin permissions.

This will be included with a brand new @ button at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, making Catch Up easily accessible and very useful to get a glimpse of activity while you're away from the discussion.

Protection: What has also introduced protection so users can not be repeatedly added to groups they have 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.
