  public void onSuccess(Group group) {
    Log.d(TAG, "Groups details updated successfully: " + group.toString());
  public void onError(CometChatException e) {
    Log.d(TAG, "Group details update failed with exception: " + e.getMessage());
val GUID:String="GUID"

val groupType:String = CometChatConstants.GROUP_TYPE_PUBLIC
val password:String=""

val group=Group(GUID,groupName,groupType,password)
