WhatsApp update brings Slack-style group messaging features and new admin controls

WhatsApp rolls out new group chat features

The latest update rolling out to WhatsApp users heralds the arrival of a batch of new group messaging features.

Have you received the new WhatsApp update yet?

Groups have a description, a short blurb under the group info in which the admin can set the objective, guidelines, and topics for that group. You can mute WhatsApp groups for either 8 hours, a week or for a year and even block the notifications.

Group video calling is also heading to the app, expanding the previous calls feature that only allowed video chats between two people.

"Voice and video calling are very popular on WhatsApp, and we're excited to share that group calling will be coming in the months ahead".

WhatsApp has today announced a bunch of new features for group chats, making it easy for members to catch up on what they've missed, while giving additional controls to the administrators. These features are available for both Android and iPhone users.

Having grown from a simple text-only chat app into a fully-featured service that offers voice chat and support for many forms of multimedia, these changes to WhatsApp group chat among others were well warranted. "When a new person joins a group, the description will show up at the top of the chat", the company explained in a blog post.

WhatsApp users can now also use the new mentions feature in groups.

Admin controls: WhatsApp has been rumoured to be working on admin controls for improving Groups experience for a long time.

There are also new admin controls that restrict who can change items like the subject, icon and the description.

Another welcome feature is that now WhatsApp has added a feature that would protect you from being repeatedly added to groups you left.

Inside the group info page, members can now search for other group participants. 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.
