Starting today for both iOS and Android users, WhatsApp group chat changes will be rolled out that allow users to include a description to detail the goal, guidelines, or topics for the group. These new features are not especially created to add anything new to group chats, but more so to enrich the experience already on offer.

WhatsApp also says that admins can now remove admin permissions of other group participants, and group creators can no longer be removed from the group they started. Most of these new WhatsApp group features have been seen in prior Android beta builds, stable builds on either platform, or have been spotted in development but were disabled by default. This will then be visible in the group chat settings as well in-view when a new member first joins the group. Want to know who is participating in a group chat on WhatsApp? While many may not be aware, WhatsApp has rolled out some group specific features as well. One new feature allows for a description of the group to be posted.

The latest update rolling out to WhatsApp users heralds the arrival of a batch of new group messaging features. Now, WhatsApp has further improved the feature with a set of new tools including Group description, Admin controls, Group catch up, Participant search, and more. And there are a couple of changes directed at group chat administrators. WhatsApp has not said if or when they will arrive on Windows Phone.

You'll now be able to find anyone in a group (especially in those large groups) by searching for them on the group info page. "There are also people coming together in groups on WhatsApp like new parents looking for support, students organizing study sessions, and even city leaders coordinating relief efforts after natural disasters". On May 15, WhatsApp announced several updates to group chats that allow members to catch up on what they've missed quickly while giving administrators additional controls.
