We get it - managing your group chat all of the time is hard. That’s why it’s now possible to turn the chat off in a group so only you (the owner) can reply.
Some early beta testers of this feature have been using it to run weekly AMAs / Q&A style sessions. Others permanently leave the chat turned off to participants but share links, job listings & news.
Control media sharing
We know some groups contain sensitive content. Our most requested moderation feature has been to allow group owners to decide whether you can easily save / share images shared in a group.
To enable either of these moderation features, tap on the header of a group chat you own and scroll to the ‘Settings‘ section. Here you’ll be able to toggle on and off the chat or disable media sharing.
Improvements and fixes:
Clear up some confusion entering a code during the signup flow
Let anyone request access to create chats from within the app!
