    Group Mute Option

    Earlier, if you remember, you could add only 100 participants in a group, but now WhatsApp is allowing you to add up to 256 people and have a good time!

    Share GIF images to Friends

    Sharing GIF Images to friends personally is also possible. However, here WhatsApp has the same feature for the groups. You can now send GIF images in a group and share a laugh all together.

    Click on the Attach button on top of the chat window to show Whats Tools share menu, then tap on the received message to open Download file popup. Choose the GIF file and send and forwarded it to any group you are a part of.


    Save Conversation as a Text File

    Like that of the personal chat, now you can simply keep a complete record of the entire group conversation by just opening the group screen>Select Menu option> Click on Email Chat>Send.

    Stop Image or Videos from Automatically Saving
