WhatsApp has published a new blog post a few hours ago, in which they explain which features are now available for groups.
WhatsApp has worked for many months to improve the experience in groups, adding many important features, available for any WhatsApp platform. Let’s do a quick summary of WhatsApp New Features for Groups.

  • Admin controls: In group settings, there’s now a control that allows admins to restrict who can change the group’s subject, icon, and description.

  • Group catch up: When you’ve been away from a group chat, quickly catch up on messages that mention or reply to you by tapping on a new @ button that appears at the bottom right corner of the chat.
  • Participant search: Find anyone in a group by searching for participants on the group info page.

  • Admins can now remove admin permissions of other group participants, and group creators can no longer be removed from the group they started.

Whatsapp have also introduced protection so users can’t be repeatedly added to groups they’ve left. These features are available for Android and iPhone users today.
