More powers to WhatsApp group admins

Lastly, WhatsApp says that users can not repeatedly rejoin groups that they have previously left.

So, let's start with the new WhatsApp group features. Some of the new features include better admin control, participant search, group catch up, and more. In terms of the latter of these, descriptions are also new with those permitted to post a description now able to add "a short blurb" to a group (shown above). You can simply search for any participant by going to the "Group Info" page.

Group messaging has become increasingly important to WhatsApp in recent times, as users turn to the app to stay in touch not only with friends and family, but also business colleagues.

In a bid to give more power to group admins, WhatsApp rolled out the 'Restrict Group' feature for Android users on beta channel earlier this month. Moreover, WhatsApp now also prevents the creator of the group from being removed from the group by other admins. The new version comes with a lot of peculiar features for groups.

BT Sport subscribers will also be able to enjoy 360-degree highlights on the app throughout the games. The final of next year's Champions League will be held in Atlético Madrid's stadium.

WhatsApp is rolling out a series of helpful features to boost the Group Chat experience. This "catch up" button will appear at the bottom right corner of the chat. The feature is given under Group settings. In fact, so popular were the Good Morning messages that Google chose to create a feature that lets you clean up your phone of these forwarded images once and for all, with just a single tap. Group description is available for both iOS and Android users. As you scroll through the unread group chats on WhatsApp you will see the '@' icon on the side.

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

WhatsApp has also made it easier for people to search for group participants online. Here, one thing very important is that the other group admin can not remove the creator of the group from it.
