WhatsApp new features
The WhatsApp application for Android has been updated. It added the group description feature. That allows you to add a group description to let the group members know what the group is about. This group description can be 512 characters long. And can be found in group info section just below the group photo and name.
And the good thing is you can see it on the chat screen as a box also. And tapping on this will take you to the description easily.
How to add WahstApp group description
Want to add a description to your WhatsApp group? Just go to the group info section and add a description in the given box below the group icon. But only group Admins can change this.
Search for the WhatsApp group members
Another notable feature of this WhatsApp new features lets you search for the members with their names. This feature is going to be most useful for those who are in a big group. Because this feature helps in looking for a participant without the hassle of scrolling the full list of all the participants. Instead, it helps by adding a search bar on the group info section.
To search for a group member just go to group info screen. And scroll down to the members’ list. Then tap on the lens icon for search.
By searching with the name you can find the exact member you are looking for. Even though his/her name and number is not saved on your phone you can find that person. But this will work if that person has saved his/her name and details on WhatsApp. And one more line I must say that if the name you entered and the name saved by that person do not match then you can’t find that exact person.
Now you can switch WhatsApp voice call to video call and video call to voice call whenever your device is getting ample Wi-Fi or mobile internet speed. Whenever you are making a WhatsApp voice call you will get a video call button to switch to video call and vice versa. But the recipient has to approve your request for a successful switch. This WhatsApp new feature is available for Android users as well as iOS users also.
