NEW FEATURES FOR GROUP CHATS
Some weeks ago, WhatsApp announced new features for group chats through a new blog post on their official website and they highlighted that these features would have been released over the coming weeks. In the past few hours, the company has released the WhatsApp for iOS 23.6.74 update on the App Store and, thanks to the official changelog, we discovered that this update brings those features to more users on the stable release of the app!
As mentioned in the official changelog, up to 1024 people can finally join a group, a feature released to some beta testers in October 2022, making it easier for users to create large groups. As the new limit has been announced within the official changelog, it seems it is now available worldwide. In addition, group admins have more control over their groups as they can manage an approval system, a feature released in the WhatsApp beta for iOS 18.104.22.168 update. It is also possible to search for groups that a contact is a member of by searching for their name, announced in the WhatsApp beta for iOS 22.214.171.124 update.
If you don’t have one of these features, note that some accounts may receive them over the coming weeks, as noted in the official changelog. Please stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app to get these features in the future in case you don’t have them after installing this update.
New features for group chats are available for more iOS users so be sure to update the app from the App Store to check if they are already enabled for your WhatsApp account.
