Over the past few months WhatsApp has introduced new features for groups like making it hard for users to be re-added to groups they've left.

To check new features, however, you have to make sure that running the latest updated app. "A short blurb found under group info that allows you to set the goal, guidelines, or topics for the group". You can mute WhatsApp groups for either 8 hours, a week or for a year and even block the notifications.

Another important feature being added is it lets you avoid that inconvenience when someone adds you to Groups when you actually left intentionally.

For group members catching up after being away from the conversation, a new catch-up option helps recap what you've missed.

"Voice and video calling are very popular on WhatsApp, and we're excited to share that group calling will be coming in the months ahead".

In addition to this change for WhatsApp group chat, the service is also launching a new feature called Catch Up - allowing users to see a quick recap of messages that have mentioned or replied to you since you've been away. The description pops up at the top whenever someone new joins in.

The group-focused updates are rolling out today, May 15, for both iPhone and Android users. Though, the new update will also look to ensure individuals who created a group in the first place can't be removed from the group by anyone else. And there are a couple of changes directed at group chat administrators.

Admin controls: WhatsApp has been rumoured to be working on admin controls for improving Groups experience for a long time.

Admins also can remove admin permissions from other participants and in a welcome change, group creators cannot be removed from the group they started.

Introduced this February, WhatsApp allows users to add descriptions to their groups.

Inside the group info page, members can now search for other group participants.
