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

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.
