WhatsApp is rolling out a new update that lets users create groups without naming them. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a screenshot where the app automatically generated a group name when the group admin doesn’t feel like coming up with one.
According to TechCrunch, Unnamed groups will be limited to only six participants. The group admin will have to add a group name manually if more than six participants are to be added to the group. WhatsApp auto-generates names dynamically according to how a user saves a contact name on their phone. Each group participant can see different group names for the same group depending on what name they used in saving participants on their contact list. For users who join groups where the participants do not have their names saved on their contact list, WhatsApp will show the number in the group name.
WhatsApp is rolling out the new update globally on Android, iOS and web over the next few weeks. The group auto-naming feature joins other feature the company has rolled out recently which includes HD picture support, and the ability to send instant video messages.
