While a group of 512 people may be difficult to keep up with on a messaging platform, it will definitely prove useful to organizations that use WhatsApp for their day-to-day communication with large numbers of employees. Furthermore, WhatsApp is reportedly working on Google Drive exports of your backup data. It is also introducing tweaks to the status feature of the app to let you change it more easily and quickly.
