    WhatsApp’s latest update brings more order and control to group chats

    Inside the group info page, members can now search for other group participants. Another change makes adding someone who has already left a group a bit more complicated, to discourage re-adds.
    “Groups have been an important part of the WhatsApp experience, whether it’s family members connecting across the globe or childhood friends staying in touch over the years,” the announcement blog post reads. “There are also people coming together in groups on WhatsApp like new parents looking for support, students organizing study sessions, and even city leaders coordinating relief efforts after natural disasters.”
    Group video calling is also heading to the app, expanding the previous calls feature that only allowed video chats between two people. The latest update comes after the chat app gained compatibility with Instagram and Facebook videos, a feature announced during parent company Facebook’s F8 conference last week.
    The group-focused updates are rolling out today, May 15, for both iPhone and Android users.
