If you don’t already know by now, I am a huge proponent of WhatsApp and how it connects the world via a new way of texting. The addition of the group chat functionality several months ago was a much welcomed feature, that was missing for the longest time. If you still have no clue what this is all about, read a previous post on it here.
However, it only supported up to 6 people in total, which was rather limiting to me. Recently, that number has been bumped up to 11 – includes the group chat initiator and 10 others. You will need to download the latest versions that support this feature. For the iPhone, it’s version 2.6.3 and you can access it here.
If you have no clue on how you can use the WhatsApp group chat feature, here are some ideas.
1. Create a family group – you can keep everyone updated on where you’re traveling to, send them photos of your experiences.
2. Create groups of specific friends – could be cell group, closer friends, etc.
3. Create groups for your project team – everyone can be updated on happenings quickly.
