WhatsApp's latest update brings more order and control to group chats

Lastly, WhatsApp says that users can not repeatedly rejoin groups that they have previously left. Facebook-owned WhatsApp recognizes the importance of Groups which is why the company has announced new features for this part of its app. These new features give more control to both Group admins as well as users.

WhatsApp has even added a "Group Description" feature to the group chats which appears in the form of a short blurb found under group info that allows you to set the goal, guidelines, or topics for the group.

In a bid to improve its services and compete with the likes of similar chat services like Telegram, WhatsApp has added a range of new features to its option of group chats.

It is worth noting that not all of the new features are aimed exclusively at those in charge of groups as the update also brings with it a "participant search" feature which as the name suggests lets group members more easily search for and find other groups members.

Another welcome feature is that now WhatsApp has added a feature that would protect you from being repeatedly added to groups you left. All of these features are now live for WhatsApp users on Android and iOS today.
