WhatsApp is continuously releasing new features via its beta version. Some of the most recent include the ability to automatically mute groups with a high number of members, message themselves and modify messages that have been sent out.


Automatic Muting Feature for Large Groups

WhatsApp Groups have been around for a long time, and it’s reasonable to assume that they can be both useful and irritating.

A user may now add more than hundreds of people to a WhatsApp group. However, one may get overwhelmed with group notifications, which may appear bad on their phone’s lock screen.”

News 18 said, “WhatsApp started Groups many years, and it is fair to say that the groups can be helpful and annoying at the same time. WhatsApp now lets you add more than 256 members to a group, with their consent of course. But that means you can be bombarded with hundreds of group notifications, which can a sore sight on your phone’s lockscreen.

So, people tend to mute groups to avoid such incidents, but WhatsApp is now bringing a feature that will automatically mute groups that have more than 256 members. The messaging app is now capable of having 1024 members in one group, and the Meta-owned platform clearly realises the importance of user’s having their privacy.”
