WhatsApp's latest update brings more order and control to group chats

In addition, the update will also now add a "group catch up" which essentially acts as a "while you were away" feature letting users see messages and comments that are likely to be more relevant to them, as well as those that are specially aimed at the user.

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: A short blurb found under group info that will allow the user to set the objective, guidelines, or topics for the group. You can mute WhatsApp groups for either 8 hours, a week or for a year and even block the notifications.

So, let's start with the new WhatsApp group features.

Sunday Evening Weather; More of the Same
Tuesday Morning: It's a bit more mild and pleasant this morning with temps down in the mid to upper 60's. Expect mostly cloudy skies overnight into early Tuesday morning , with some lingering rain showers.

Group description: Now, WhatsApp will give description more prominence so that any new member to the WhatsApp Group understands the objective of the group.

WhatsApp took to its blog today to introduce a series of new features for group chats.

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. These features are available for Android and iOS users on WhatsApp. One new feature allows for a description of the group to be posted. Announcing all-new updates for WhatsApp Groups, the company stressed on the fact that Groups has been a very important part of the WhatsApp experience and it wants to further improve it. Some of these functions include changing the group subject, icon and description.

Participant search: This new feature will let you find anyone in a group by searching for participants on the group info page. And Administrators can now remove administrator powers belonging to other group members. Now with Group catch up, you can quickly catch up on messages that people mentioned you by tapping on the new @ button that appears at the bottom right.
