WhatsApp Latest Update: Restrict, Group Calling and Announcement Feature

WhatsApp the popular messaging app is about adding more features to the app dubbed group calling.

Facebook announced that it will launch group calling feature on the messaging app. The company said voice and video calling are popular on the messaging app, which makes group calling a logical next step.

The new group calling feature will allow four people to join a group call simultaneously. W hatsApp also announced that stickers are coming to the messaging platform, following the example of Facebook Messenger and WeChat.

Stickers are similar to emojis, but are often larger and more unique than the usual set of emoticons available by default to users.

WhatsApp Restrict Group Feature

WhatsApp is rolling out the Restrict Group Features currently to all whatsapp beta version 2.18.132 on Android, iOS and Windows phones.


The Restrict group feature adds more Privacy settings to the group. It allows only the admins to edit the group description thereby restricting non administrator from modifying the group description.

In Admin Settings, the administrator can restrict who can change the group info.


This is another feature we are expecting in the next update.

What do you think?

  1. It is wonderful idea… But more reasons for telecoms operators to resume their call for whatsapp ban or taxation.

  2. I have been expecting this since. I jus can’t understand the reason why every user has access to that function in a group chat.

  3. The restrictions features for editing group info is the main selling point of the new update. All those people that like changing group info and icon anyhow they like can behave now
