WhatsApp has implemented a few additional features that have made it easier for users to establish groups and add people to them. In keeping with that theme, the Meta-owned messaging platform has begun to roll out a new feature for iOS and Android users that allows them to add individuals to new groups directly within the group chat.
According to the most recent notification from WABetaInfo, a website that analyses and looks after WhatsApp updates and upgrades, a new banner may appear within group conversations, urging individuals to join new members of the group.
This feature may be considered a shortcut that saves the user from having to access the group information in order to add a new member to the group. Users can add new members to the group by tapping on that banner, assuming the group settings allow it.
Furthermore, the research stated that because of the easy access offered by the banner, users do not need to browse through the group details page to complete the task.
According to various sources, the option to add members directly within the group chat is accessible to select users who install the current WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS, and it will be rolled out to even more people in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that WhatsApp chats will now be able to rapidly capture and exchange video messages. According to Meta’s creator and CEO, “It’s as easy as sending a quick voice message. We think these will be a fun way to share moments with all of the emotion that comes from video, whether it’s wishing someone a happy birthday, laughing at a joke, or bringing good news,” the business stated.
According to a statement released by WhatsApp, video messages are a real-time means to react to discussions with whatever you want to say and display in 60 seconds. Simply tap to enter video mode and hold to record video. You may also lock and record the video hands-free by swiping it up with contributions from IANS.
