Two new features for group chats and communities have been revealed by WhatsApp. The first one is a privacy enhancement that gives admins the power to control who has access to a group or not. Previously, anyone could sign up via a link that any member provided as an invitation. Usually, little flags in the chat that show a new member has joined the group might easily vanish from view after a few messages. This change can guarantee that conversations and information are shared with the right people.
The second version emphasises interacting with others in your Communities. WhatsApp introduced Communities last year to enable the coexistence of numerous groups under a single roof. The messaging platform is now making it simpler to discover which groups you share a connection with. When you conduct a search for a specific contact, the group names will come up.
This news follows a few recent upgrades to WhatsApp. The most recent one lets users plan their departure from a WhatsApp group chat. Although currently in beta testing, this tool would completely erase your conversation history. Picture-in-picture compatibility for iOS video conversations and voice notes as status updates are two further recent improvements.
Within the next few weeks, the two new functionalities ought to be accessible everywhere.
