WhatsApp intends to make you adhere even more to group conversations. Sometimes messy or too demanding, the groups WhatsApp have often had the reputation of being out of control.
But Meta, the service’s parent company, decided to make it easier to manage and use these groups.
To do this, Mark Zuckerberg unveiled on his Instagram broadcast channel, in addition to a blog note, two new features, far from revolutionary but ultimately allowing for better organization of his application.
No more intruders in groups
First, it will be possible for group admins to view and manage group membership requests from a separate tab.
Until now, when a person shared an invite link for their group, anyone with the link could join the group. From now on, admins will have the power to accept or deny entry to the conversation.
“We have designed a simple tool that allows admins to decide who can join a group. When an admin chooses to share their group’s invite link or make their group available in a community, they now have more control over who can join.
Second novelty: the vision of common groups with its contacts. Technically, this feature was already available when the user clicked on a contact card.
