WhatsApp has added a handful of features to make group conversations more manageable. Starting this week, you’ll be able to both mute and message specific people in your group conversations, the company announced in a tweet noted by Android Central (via The Verge). The first should be especially useful in situations where one may not be aware that everyone else can hear what’s going on in the background of their home or office. The company has also added a banner that will notify you when someone joins a group chat.
WhatsApp has recently introduced some new features. In addition to the group calling functionality, new privacy toggles have been added this week that give people more granular control over their profile photos and ‘last seen’ status. The company also finally made it easier for Android users to migrate their chat history to a new iPhone.
