WhatsApp has added new group features, including improved control over group privacy and better community features.
WhatsApp is making it easier for group admins to control who can join the group:
When an admin chooses to share their group’s invite link, or make their group joinable in a community, they now have more control over who can join. Groups are where people have some of their most intimate conversations and it’s important that admins are able to easily decide who can and cannot come in.
The company is also making it easier to find common groups:
With the growth of Communities and their larger groups, we want to make it easy to know which groups you have in common with someone. Whether you’re trying to remember the name of a group you know you share with someone or you want to see the groups you’re both in, you can now easily search a contact’s name to see your groups in common.
The features will be rolling out to users in the coming weeks.
