In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we announced a new tweaked interface for the group settings screen. With the redesigned interface, WhatsApp is making it easier for group administrators to manage the group, including new controls to decide who can add members to the group. Yesterday, the WhatsApp for iOS 23.11.78 update was released on the App Store and, although the redesigned group settings screen is not mentioned in the official changelog, we can confirm that it is widely rolling out!

The official changelog for this version still mentions features regarding previous updates, indicating that they are still in the process of gradual release. However, after installing the new update, we can confirm that group administrators that use the stable version of WhatsApp from the App Store can now experiment with a new interface for the group settings screen. In addition, there is a new option called “Add Other Participants” that allows group administrators to choose who can add new members to the group.

If you don’t have this feature, note that some accounts may receive it over the coming weeks, even if this is not indicated in the official changelog. Please stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app to get the feature in the future in case you don’t have it after installing this update.

The new interface for the group settings screen is available to iOS users that install the latest update of WhatsApp from the App Store, and it is also rolling out to users that use the beta version from the TestFlight app. Make sure to install this update to enjoy a better user experience.
