In addition, the update will also now add a "group catch up" which essentially acts as a "while you were away" feature letting users see messages and comments that are likely to be more relevant to them, as well as those that are specially aimed at the user.

You can download WhatsApp Messenger from the App Store for free.

WhatsApp Groups will now have group descriptions, which are short bios that describe what the group is about in relation to its guidelines or topics discussed.

While these changes to WhatsApp group chat have generally been well-received, there have been some actions from the company in the past few months that have drawn the ire of a significant population in India.

Amazon Go targets Chicago, San Francisco for new stores
At the time only Seattle and Los Angeles were confirmed, but it looks like the expansion will stretch beyond those cities. It is recently reported that Amazon had its eye on an Amazon Go location in San Francisco's Union Square neighborhood.

Most of the new features will be of benefit to those in control of a group chat.

Group description: Now, WhatsApp will give description more prominence so that any new member to the WhatsApp Group understands the objective of the group. WhatsApp has taken notice and has introduced a number of new features to help admins and users to keep the group on track. One new feature allows for a description of the group to be posted.

Ahead of elections in India this week, tens of thousands of WhatsApp groups have been made in an effort to reach voters, but many groups have been spreading misinformation and division between groups - especially Hindus and Muslims. All of these features are now live for WhatsApp users on Android and iOS today.

Admin controls: WhatsApp has been rumoured to be working on admin controls for improving Groups experience for a long time.

Admin controls: In group settings, there is now a control that allows admins to restrict who can change the group's subject, icon, and description.

Inside the group info page, members can now search for other group participants. Now, WhatsApp will let you catch up on messages that mention or reply to you by tapping on a new @ button which will appear at the bottom right corner of the chat window.

Banning automatically created WhatsApp group chat rooms is definitely warranted, but the fact that a bunch of innocent groups were caught in the crossfire is definitely upsetting a significant portion of the user base.
