news, software & apps news, android

Whatsapp is working on a new feature that will make it easier to manage groups. The instant messaging app will soon introduce a new feature that will allow Group Admins to regulate who may join the group. The feature, first reported by WABetaInfo, is now available in Whatsapp Beta for Android v2.22.18.10. Meta also launched three new privacy features for WhatsApp earlier this week, including the option to disguise your online status, exit Whatsapp groups silently, and restrict screenshots for certain chats. Let’s look at the new feature coming soon to Whatsapp Groups, changes, and everything we know so far.

Whatsapp Tests New Features for Managing Group Members

According to WABetaInfo, Whatsapp, the messaging service is working on a new feature that would allow group admins to control who may join the group. Once it is available, WhatsApp group settings may have a “Approve new participants” option, allowing group admins to approve or reject inbound requests from users who all want to join a specific group.

Whatsapp is also working on a new feature that would prevent non-admin members from adding new members to the group. When the element to pick who can add others to the group is enabled, WhatsApp will notify all group participants, just as it does when another Group setting is modified. There will most likely be a new section with all of the pending requests for a group. The Approve new participants option is found at the bottom of the group settings menu, under Group Info.

The new feature is reportedly available through the Google Play Beta programme, with the Android v2.22.18.9 beta. However, there is currently no word on when these new elements will be made available in the stable version.
