WhatsApp will let you set up group chats without having to come up with a name


WhatsApp will soon allow users to create new group chats without having to name them. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced. Instead, groups with no names will receive an automatically generated name based on their participants. In a screenshot shared by Zuckerberg, we can see one such group titled “Rocco & Li-Chen.”

Although it’s a minor feature, not having to name each and every group chat should come in handy for those times when you’re sending group messages for one-off events. Personally, I’m in a dozen WhatsApp groups that are simply titled “Drinks?” which were set up for a one-off event and were never intended to be a continuous group chat. Being able to see a list of participants in the chat list instead of a nondescript group chat title seems like an improvement to me.

According TechCrunch, nameless groups will be limited to six participants, instead of the more than a thousand that can normally join a WhatsApp group. The app will use the names you have saved to individual contacts to generate a group name, which means that group names will appear differently to your different participants (so if you have a contact saved as “Mom” , you will see “Mom” in the name of the group chat).
