WhatsApp Update: Whatsapp will allow you to limit who joins your group chats

If you have an invite link for a WhatsApp group chat, you can join it right away without any additional steps. However, a new feature being developed by the messaging app may soon change that, as it would allow managers to limit who can join a group chat through these links. WhatsApp will introduce admin approval as an optional extra in an upcoming version, according to WABetaInfo, to assist them manage group chats.

Admins will have to manually enable the feature, which will allow all other admins to determine who can join a chat via a group invite link. This will most likely be effective for larger groups of people rather than small groups of friends and family. The feature is referred to in the app as “group membership approval,” and you may toggle it on and off in the group settings. If you do so, WhatsApp will send a notification to the group conversation, informing everyone of the change in settings.

When someone wishes to join a group chat, you’ll get a notification if you’re an admin and have the feature switched on. These requests will also display in a new area of the group’s information, allowing you to keep track of all of your outstanding requests in one place.


WhatsApp will also launch six new gender-neutral emoticons that depict individuals with varied skin tones and hair hues as part of this upgrade. Each has a beard that matches the colour of their hair.

We haven’t heard when this update will be available on WhatsApp, and it’ll probably be a while before we see it on the official app. WhatsApp has recently undergone updates, including the addition of 512-member group conversations and the relatively new message reactions function.
