The feature is currently being tested on the messaging platform’s beta 126.96.36.199 version, a report said.
Quoting a statement from Beta testers to WABetaInfo, the report said that under the list of current participants in the ‘Group info’ tab, users can see a new option called ‘See Past Participants.’ This list of former participants also gets a dedicated search bar.
The report also said that the current option of notifying the chat when a member leaves or is removed, is being done away with. The names of such participants will, therefore, only be recorded in the ‘Past Participants’ list.
While the beta testing was released on iOS earlier this week, some users have now been able to access it on Android as well. The feature is expected to be launched for the desktop version, too, very soon.
