Washington [US]Aug 7 (ANI): Group chats are one of the recent new features in WhatsApp’s toolkit that have seen major development.
According to Mashable, the site also launched Communities, a whole new way to connect with people who share your interests, and increased the maximum number of group chat participants from 100 to 512.

Admins and users would want to keep track of who recently left chat in such large groups. Since WhatsApp is testing a feature in beta, you don’t have to rely on hunches or ask around.
Group managers and members of WhatsApp iPhone beta 22.214.171.124 can see who left or removed from the group in the last 60 days (via WABetaInfo). Below the list of current participants on the “Group Info” page, a new option called “View Past Participants” is now accessible.

There is also a separate search field for the banned users list, which can be useful for long chats where people often leave and rejoin. The feature can also be useful for small businesses that use WhatsApp groups for internal communication or customer engagement.
Additionally, the current chat notification system when a participant leaves or is started is being deprecated. Only administrators will be informed of such incidents via the chat; this can be done to speed up moderation. The names of group members who have left will therefore only be included in the list of “Past Participants”.
The software is cross-platform, we believe it should be released for Android and desktop as soon as possible. For iOS users who are part of WhatsApp TestFlight, the feature has already started rolling out, as reported by Mashable.
