In the past few months, WhatsApp has been adding various new features, like Unsend Messages, Live Location, and so forth. So, this time they have come up with a new feature called as “Group Description“. This feature lets the group admin and other members add a description for the group on WhatsApp. Currently, they have rolled out this feature for Android Beta and Windows app only. When you add a description to the group, all the members of that group can see it, but if only they also have the Android Beta version. While testing this feature, the group members who don’t have the Android Beta version were unable to see the description. But, let’s hope that WhatsApp will roll out this amazing feature to regular users pretty soon.
Everyone who is a part of a WhatsApp group can add the description. The character limit for group description is limited to a maximum of 500 characters. This feature is quite useful as it can give a brief idea about the group purpose and the group activities to the new members who joined recently. In this post, we will talk about how to add a group description in WhatsApp.
