whatsapp latest feature

All participants can view the group description (that’s
public in case the group invite link has been shared with third parties) at the
top of the Group Info Section.
Also if you are sharing the group link to some participant
to join, the group description will appear. Meaning before you join group on
WhatsApp you’ll see the description telling you what the group is all about.

When a new participant joins the group using a group invite
link (or an admin adds him), the new participant will see a pinned box, where it will be
visible the description of the group.
The pinned description will automatically disappear once the
user leaves the chat and it won’t appear again. 
All participants can normally edit the group description, but the administrator will be able to restrict
this feature, preventing no-administrators to modify the group description once
the Group super power feature is available. 
Note that this privacy option will available in future.
