If you've ever been part of a WhatsApp group chat, you'll know what a roller-coaster of emotions they can be.
From inside jokes to endless bickering, they're nothing if not dramatic. But hey, we wouldn't have it any other way.
There are certain perks that come along with being a group chat administrator – namely the capability to add and dismiss other members as you please – but as always, with great power comes great responsibility.
We all know one admin that takes their role a little too seriously, though unfortunately there's nothing us mere second-grade members can do about it – until now.
The messaging app has announced it is testing a new feature that allows user to overthrow their group chat leader should their regime become too much to handle.
According to WABetaInfo, at the moment, "WhatsApp is developing this feature for iOS and it will be available soon for all users.
"It is already enabled by default in the newest WhatsApp Google Play beta for Android 2.18.12."
So, soon you'll be able to claim all the glory for yourself!
Group chats. We both love them and hate them.
Love them because it's a place where we can connect with all of our friends in one go and organise nights out where nobody gets left out.
Hate them…. because, well, getting 50 notifications all at once is a pain in the arse, especially when you just want to switch off and ignore the rest of the world.
Well, those days of ignorance may soon be over as Whatsapp are now adding a tagging feature to its group chats – even if you have you convos muted.
It works by using the @ symbol – just like Twitter and Instagram – so you can't pretend you just never saw the message.
We can see a lot of pointless checking our phones in the future.
We all love our girly group chats. They mean we have advice on speed-dial and a guaranteed laugh whenever we need some distracting from our working day. It's almost impossible to remember life before them.
From the cheerleader, to the ghost and the meme-happy – we bet there's one of all of these girls in your group chat:
This girl is a multi-tasker. She somehow has time to keep the conversation going ALL day long, with snapshots of her day and screenshots of her boyf's convos. She drives you nuts at the wrong time, but when you're bored she's your saviour.
The Meme Hoarder
This woman doesn't speak in words, but rather sends perfectly placed meme's into all of your group chats. She literally has a meme or gif for EVERY occasion.
If you even hint of a night out, this girl will have it all planned by lunchtime. Venue checked. Taxi booked. She has even organised the dress code.
She will have every single detail from a night out or weekend away – nothing goes past this one. Perfect if you couldn't go out on Saturday night. Not so perfect if you got absolutely legless on Saturday night.
This girl rarely replies to group conversations, so much so you sometimes forget she's even there. But she is. And she will pop up every now and then with a perfectly placed single-liner.
She will always have some sort of problem going on with her boyfriend/sister/dog and thinks the group chat is her own personal agony aunt station.
This one is great for getting your whole group up and out. Her supportive shout-outs and clapping emojis are always there when you need a little pick-me-up too.
