WhatsApp for Android has been updated. It has introduced one new feature for the WhatsApp groups. This new feature allows the WhatsApp users to add a group description. Group description will help the group members to know what the group is about. WhatsApp has also introduced one more feature for the groups in which you can search participants in a group. This update also includes a feature which gives an option to switch from a video call to voice call by the tap of a button.
Now a new group description feature will allow you to add a description or a topic to a group. This will tell the group members about what the group is about. One can add a group description up to 512 characters which can be seen by clicking the group info which is found below the group icon and group name. And same thing will also be available on the chat screen in a box, which will take you to the description on one tap. This feature was first spotted in WhatsApp beta version 2.18.54 for Android and version 2.18.28 for Windows Phone.
In the new update the group members will be able to search for the members with their names. This feature will help in looking for a member with the help of a search bar on the group info screen without scrolling the list of all the members. This feature is already rolled out on iOS earlier this month.
Now just one tap can switch you from WhatsApp voice call to video call. Now it will show an option to switch from voice call to video call and vice versa when you are already on a call. This feature of WhatsApp was initially spotted on beta version for Android in January and it is already rolled out in iOS in February this year.
