Mute Always:

In the previous updates, you were bound to mute the group notifications for up to 1 year only. But now if you don’t want to get irritating notifications, you will have the option to mute the group chat notifications forever. No doubt, you will have the family Whatsapp groups where a lot of useless messages come on a daily basis. So by using this feature, you will not get boring messages like Hello, Good morning, Good night, what’s up, etc, and save your precious time.

New Wallpapers:

In the upcoming updates, you’ll see a lot of new amazing and beautiful wallpapers. In the recent version, you can set only one wallpaper for all the chats but in the new update, you’ll be able to set separate wallpaper for every chat or group.

New storage management tool:

It was a very big headache for the WhatsApp users to know how much storage is being used by a specific group or chat. Now, WhatsApp is going to solve this problem by launching a new storage management tool. Hence, you can clean up your storage by deleting useless data.

Group Call Limit increased:

Due to the pandemic, WhatsApp is going to increase the group audio and video call limit. In the current version of WhatsApp, you can add only 4 members to a group video call but in the next update, you’ll add up to 8 persons in a group call.
