WhatsApp has announced the release of new changes aimed at making groups more manageable for admins and easier to navigate for users. The new tools are a follow-up to the introduction of Communities last year, which was meant to help people get the most out of their groups on WhatsApp.
New Admin Control
One of the new features is a simple tool that gives group admins more control over their group privacy. As more people join communities, it is important that admins have the ability to decide who is able to join a group.
With the new tool, when an admin chooses to share their group’s invite link or make their group joinable, they can now control who gets to join. This is important because groups are where people have some of their most intimate conversations. The new feature will give admins more control over their groups, ensuring that only the right people are allowed in the conversation. This will be beneficial for groups with a large number of members.
Spot the common
Furthermore, WhatsApp has introduced another feature that makes it easy to know which groups you have in common with someone. With the growth of Communities and their larger groups, users can now easily search a contact’s name to see their groups in common. Whether you’re trying to remember the name of a group you know you share with someone or you want to see the groups you’re both in, the new feature makes it easy to navigate through your groups.
These features will start rolling out globally in the coming weeks, as WhatsApp continues to build new tools to improve the group experience for admins and members alike.
