The upcoming feature on WhatsApp prevents users from being added to WhatsApp groups without their permission.

WhatsApp is working away at another feature which will give clients more authority over groups on the application. This feature is currently being tested on the iOS beta version of WhatsApp.

First spotted by WABetaInfo, ‘Group Invitation’ feature can be tried out by WhatsApp beta clients on iOS. WhatsApp beta users on iOS. WhatsApp recently started the beta programme for iOS. Interested users can download the TestFlight app and join WhatsApp’s beta programme. The new feature will keep clients from being added to bunches without their permission.

Group Invitation on WhatsApp comes three choices for groups. Clients can choose ‘Everybody’ in the event that they wish to be added to bunches by only anybody on WhatsApp. Also ‘My Contacts’ will permit just the client’s contacts to add them to groups. If a user chooses ‘Nobody’ then a request will be sent by the admin to join the WhatsApp group. This request has an expiry time of 72 hours.


WhatsApp’s new feature can be found in the ‘Settings’ menu under Account > Privacy > Groups. This is similar to WhatsApp’s security control for last seen, profile photograph, about, and status update. WhatsApp, at present, offers choices to mute groups for 8 hours, a week or a year and disable notifications as well. Clients can document amass visits too. Users can archive group chats as well. But this feature will have stricter control over groups on the app.

WhatsApp has also launched the beta version of its business application on iOS. WhatsApp Business allows businesses to connect with consumers through the messaging app’s platform. Launched last January, WhatsApp Business was available only for Android users. The Facebook-owned company could soon launch it for all users on iOS.
