San Francisco, February 6: Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out longer group subjects and descriptions on iOS beta. This will make it easier for users to better describe groups, reports WABetaInfo.

Beta users can now choose a longer group description, up to 2048 characters, as the previous limit was 512 characters.
