The second feature is a small yet important update that adds ‘search participants’ feature, which will allow users to search for any group member easily by just typing his/her name from the group info screen. This feature will help users a lot, imagine you are in a WhatsApp group with 100 members and you want to find whether or not your friend is in the group, you simply search the name and easily find out.

The third feature is that you can switch between voice and video calls. Yes, finally you don’t have to go through the hassle of disconnecting and calling again. Now users can easily switch between voice and video calls by simply tapping the video button while on a call.
