WhatsApp update brings Slack-style group messaging features and new admin controls
Messaging service WhatsApp rolled out new group-chat features on Tuesday, including more controls for administrators as well as regular group members. That description will show up at the top of the chat when a new person joins the group.
Group video calling is also heading to the app, expanding the previous calls feature that only allowed video chats between two people.
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. 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.
Speaking personally, as a U.S. resident, this will be handy when I wade through 100+ messages from active groups with my friends back home every morning.
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. "Admins can now remove admin permissions of other group participants, and group creators can no longer be removed from the group they started". The new features are going to be of particular interest to larger groups, but it will appeal to smaller groups of chatters as well. These features are available for Android and iOS users on WhatsApp. Another change makes adding someone who has already left a group a bit more complicated, to discourage re-adds.
We are not always on our phones and in the commute home from work for example, you might switch on your data and get bombarded by conversations on WhatsApp.
Group description: Now, WhatsApp will give description more prominence so that any new member to the WhatsApp Group understands the objective of the group.
It is worth noting that not all of the new features are aimed exclusively at those in charge of groups as the update also brings with it a "participant search" feature which as the name suggests lets group members more easily search for and find other groups members.
