WhatsApp Features Group Description for Android and Windows Phone

Group description feature is enabled for latest version of WhatsApp Android beta 2.18.57 and Windows beta 2.18.28 app

WhatsApp recently launched Group Description feature on the Android beta and Windows version. Users can join the beta program on Google Play Store for WhatsApp, and the latest features in testing will be available for them. To use this feature, user can tap on the Group name and below the group picture, a new option for adding Group description will appear.

User gets a pop-up notification when group discussion is added, which mentions that specific member has added description. User also gets notified after description is removed or changed. Non-Group admins can also add a group description. However, the description only shows to others when the feature is active on their phones and it is not been visible on iOS phones yet.

However, WhatsApp’s Group Description feature is still in beta-testing and it is not avaible for all users. The company has not disclosed any details regarding availability of this feature for iOS users. Recently, WhatsApp have rolled out UPI Payments feature in India. However, this feature is limited for 1 million user and it only allows transaction of small amounts through the app. The Unified Payments Interface features allows direct bank level transfers using the virtual payee address and UPI Pin. The feature is currently peer-to-peer based without involving any merchants and businesses.
