So, WhatsApp for iOS is getting another update that adds a couple of new features and improvements aimed at group admins.
Facebook has been criticized for allowing its end-to-end encryption chat app to be used as a means to spread fake news and to incite animosity toward racial or ethnic groups as a result of fake information, particularly during elections in India last month. However, users can quickly contact administrators if they want an important message to be sent. Group admins can find the new option in the Group Info under Group Settings.
WhatsApp is also testing its payment services in India and ahead of an official launch.

One player they that may fit that bill is Jamal Crawford after he opted out of his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves. With very little cap space to work with, the Warriors are limited as to who they can acquire in free agency.
WhatsApp's statement on the new feature can be read in its entirety here.
Apart from the focus on group users, WhatsApp has also enabled a number of privacy-related features. The spokesperson added that the company has worked closely with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), bank partners, and the Indian government on these details of how its service works.
About 250 million of WhatsApp's 1.5 billion monthly active users live in India. The feature will be remotely activated for users of the latest version of WhatsApp stable for Android soon. The messaging app has already received permission from NPCI to tie up with banks to facilitate financial transactions via Unified Payments Interface (UPI).
