What are the Other WhatsApp Features in October 2018?

The Delete for Everyone feature is another useful one. In the speed of things, you might have sent a message to your friend. But later you regretted that it should be sent to someone else. Just select the message and click on delete icon.

Earlier the time limit for such operation was only 7 minutes, within which you have to click the delete icon. But it has been extended to 68 minutes. This is also useful in group chat.

WhatsApp groups are the backbone of this utility. But if any other person wants to join the group, he doesn’t know why that group is created. For this purpose a 500 character group description is possible now. The group chat will get a notification on the new description.

Earlier video calling was added to WhatsApp. But now you can add more members on a video chat. Using the group video calling a team conference, friendly group chat and family meetings are so easy.

What’s in for Windows Phone users?

To some of the users, a new feature in the Calling UI was introduced. Both Voice and Video calling are supported on WhatsApp. But shifting from one to another may require to stop the current chat. In this new version, a message will be sent to the other user when you want to shift from Voice to Video chat. The other user just need to accept it.

This Facebook owned company is still committed to Windows users. You might have left some groups and don’t want to return back. But the group admins might try to add you back. The latest update prevents this process.

WhatsApp for Windows users allows users to get back to message you missed in a group chat. Admins also can remove permissions of other admins. You can also find any other member by searching.
