Now Whatsapp Group Admins Cannot Add You In The Group Without Your Permission

Many times you might have experienced the problem of being added in any unknown whatsapp group. This can be very annoying sometimes if anyone adds you in the group without your permission.

Sometimes, many spammy marketers like, policy advisors, stock brokers use your number to add you in a group, which can lead to privacy issues, because your number gets shared with many unknown people.

But now WhatsApp is working on a new update which is known as Group invitation feature. This feature is spotted in the report by WAbetaInfo.

It can be clearly seen in the screenshots that this feature is under development and WhatsApp is testing this, and very soon WhatsApp can make this available in next updates for Android and IOS.

Users can access this feature by going into WhatsApp Settings>Account>Privacy>Groups. There will be three privacy options to choose from.

You can select “Everyone” if you want to be added in any group, you can select “My Contacts” if you want to be added only by your contacts, and by selecting “Nobody” you will get an Invitation if someone wants to add you in their Whatsapp Group.

You can choose whether to accept the invitation or deny that. If the invitation link expires and you want to join the group then there will be a group link feature, by which you can join the group by visiting the link of that Whatsapp group.

This feature will be really helpful for many users. Tell me about your views on this upcoming update of whatsapp, how this feature will help you?
