The new update has reportedly been submitted through the TestFlight beta program, bringing the version to 220.127.116.11. Earlier news emerged that the app was working on the ability to silently leave groups without notifying other group participants except group admins.
Now with the “old participants” feature, all group members can see who has left the group. The website also shared a screenshot of the feature. A new section called “Find Past Participants” will be added where group members can search the name of people who have left the group in the last 60 days.
WhatsApp has rolled out the ability to filter unread chats to some beta testers. This feature allows users to filter their chats by showing only the chats that contain new messages. Notably, last month, the “unread chat filter” feature was also rolled out for some beta users. but it was disabled in the next update.
