WhatsApp team yesterday released a new update for its Beta Application for Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile. The app has been updated to new version 2.18.28. The update comes with a new “Group Description” feature which was in internal testing for a long time by WhatsApp Team.

The latest feature lets users add a Description to the WhatsApp group. Users will be able to add upto 512 characters to the Group Description. Any group member will have the authority to change the Description of the group anytime without any interference from the group admin.

WhatsApp which is working for some new features especially designed for the Group admins might well bring the option for admins to allow only a select number of people in the particular group to change the description. This feature is still under internal testing and we should be getting it sooner than later.

WhatsApp couple of days ago had released an update for its Beta app for Windows Phone which brought couple of hidden features, Stickers and Live Location. The team is currently testing the features internally and they should be enabled for all Beta users very soon.

The Group Description feature is currently available for beta testing and is live for Windows Phone users in the Microsoft Store and you can download it by clicking the below Microsoft Store link. Do let us know your thoughts on the new Group Description feature, in the comments below.
