According to a report by WABetaInfo, the Meta-owned messaging app is also working on a way to let members of a WhatsApp group know who has left the group. The company is working on a feature called ‘View Past Participants’ for group chats. This new feature will appear in the Group Info part of the group under the list of existing participants and tapping on it will enable members to see all WhatsApp members who were participants in a particular group in the past. This in turn will make it easy for members in a group to keep a track of all the members who have left the group.
