WhatsApp is now bringing a feature that will automatically mute groups that have more than 256 members
It has been several years since WhatsApp first introduced groups, and it is fair to say that while the groups can be helpful, they can also be bothersome. You can now add more than 256 people to a WhatsApp group—provided all of those people give their permission, of course. On the other hand, this implies that you could be inundated with hundreds of group alerts, which could be an aesthetically offensive look on the lockscreen of your phone. People tend to mute groups to avoid this, but WhatsApp is working on a feature that will automatically mute groups with more than 256 members.
The messaging application can now accommodate up to 1024 users in a single group, and the fact that the platform is owned by Meta demonstrates that the company understands how important it is for users to maintain their privacy. Users of WhatsApp can currently access the automatic mute feature in the beta version of the app. Once the tests have been completed successfully and no bugs have been reported, you can anticipate that WhatsApp will make the feature available publicly for all users. It is one of several things that WhatsApp is testing in the background with its beta users, and this particular one is one of those features.
People are encouraged to always keep a close eye out for the beta tester window whenever it is available, as WhatsApp will occasionally open it up for testing purposes. But the ability to mute conversations in groups isn’t the only feature that WhatsApp has been considering implementing recently. On iOS devices running WhatsApp version 188.8.131.52, users will soon have the opportunity to edit their messages before sending them. When the user presses and holds any message, the function will be activated. If you send a message after amending it, WhatsApp will indicate to the recipient that the message has been edited by adding the label “Edited.”
According to the source, WhatsApp users will be unable to change previously sent messages for 15 minutes after they have been delivered. However, it is highly likely that WhatsApp will not confine the edit feature to just messages in the future. According to the information provided by the tipster, WhatsApp may in the future provide users with the ability to change the text that appears under their photos. Editing is a service that is in high demand.
