WhatsApp is currently making some big changes to group chat – how do we know? Well, because WhatsApp’s Translation Centre has leaked a few new updates linked to group conversations. This new changes will affect certain features regarding the security and the functionality of chat groups.
But, what do these notifications mean?
Well, first of all, it means that you can expect to be alerted about whether or not the chat group is safe or not. This will depend on if the chat is encrypted from start to finish, ie, nobody from outside of the group will be able to spy on your conversations.
These messages also refer to a new button on the screen (below the conversation), that will allow you jump to the most recent message in the group that you have not read. This button is ideal when the messages start flowing in your absence (and we all know what that can mean), and you just need to know the latest.
Although the launch date of the new functions is unknown, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we know more!
