With the increase in the number of users, WhatsApp has finally announced that it will support the number of group participants up to 1024 people. However, it is very difficult to prevent chaos and create order in groups with so many people. The instant messaging app has brought a number shortcut especially for crowded WhatsApp group chats. So, what will this shortcut do? Let’s take a look at the details of the news together.
Shortcut for number in WhatsApp group chats will prevent chaos
According to WABetaInfo’s blog post, with the iOS 23.1.75 update, a shortcut came to WhatsApp for dealing with foreign numbers in groups. The feature, which is gradually spreading, has been in testing for a while. The shortcut will provide easy access to the number in cases such as leaving or adding a user from the group.
As seen in the image above, foreign numbers added to or removed from WhatsApp groups will be highlighted. This will make it easier to call or message those people. Or, the WhatsApp user directly added to the group can be quickly saved to the contacts by other members.
Currently, in WhatsApp, when a participant is added to or left from the group, it is necessary to find it among the participants or save it by typing the number elsewhere.
On the other hand, with its latest update, WhatsApp has also introduced a feature where everyone’s profile photo will appear for group chats. The instant communication platform thinks that this innovation will be especially useful for people who mix groups.
