WhatsApp has been a go-to instant messaging application for several smartphone users, thanks to its minimalistic user interface. Be it a single chat or a group chat, WhatsApp always offered the best of features. WhatsApp is now looking to take the messaging experience to a new level by adding new features to WhatsApp Groups. WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature to its Android users, which makes it easier to them to check the mentions in the groups. WhatsApp users will now be shown a different option to jump right into the messages in which they're mentioned. This is a nice little feature to have around. Until now, users have to manually check for the messages of their mentions, but now it has been solved.
There’s also now an easy way to check the group messages which can be accessed under the floating “@” option in the chat window. Additionally, the users will also be able to use the search option in the group info page to look up any member of the group.
Apart from these general updates to the WhatsApp Groups, there is one addition to the app which has been a long-awaited functionality. The ability to stop re-addition to groups after exiting them. For a very long time, this had been a missing feature and spammers had been taking advantage of this fact. Although there hasn’t been a detailed statement on how the functionality would work. We are sure that it will be available to the users soon.
It’s fairly well known now that WhatsApp is taking some drastic steps and rolling out constant updates to make the platform better. In their recent developer’s conference conducted by Facebook, the company informed the public about the group video chat feature and the sticker feature on the platform which would be soon rolled out to the users. Also, the company is taking some strict steps to ensure that spammers do not ruin the experience of the app by spreading fake news or agendas, especially in countries like India. Although, the company has not explicitly made a statement about the same. All these features will be available for both Android and iOS users starting today.
