Soon, you can not be added to WhatsApp Groups without your permission

WhatsApp’s latest feature on iOS beta

WhatsApp’s latest feature on iOS beta

Now, in a recent report by WABetaInfo, it has been found that WhatsApp is working on a new feature through which no one can add you in a WhatsApp group without your permission. Users would not get a second request for the same group before the first request expires. The "Group Invitation" feature would surely change that. This update has been reported by Wabetainfo.com.

The feature is now in the TestFlight page and would be available in beta for all WhatsApp users who wish to try the new feature.

WhatsApp offered a public beta program for Android and Windows Phone previous year.

Before WhatsApp releases new upgrades to all users, it typically releases them for beta builds of the software. Available on the desktop and Web, these features included quick replies, labels, and chat list filtering.

However, the WhatsApp fan will have the option to accept or deny the invitation before they are placed in the thread. However, the new feature would change all that and give power back to the users. The link can be used to join a group regardless of the privacy option.

DJ Marshmello’s new track Biba is a tribute to Shah Rukh Khan
The song is a ideal tribute to Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and has references of iconic hit songs from the actor's films. Fans now opine that the video song is a tribute to Shah Rukh Khan who has been ruling the roost for more than two decades now.

The "Group Invitation" feature is not yet available and is still under development.

A user will have the option of limiting their privacy settings for Group invitation to three options: Everyone, My Contacts and Nobody.

When the admin is not able to add you, a new chat will be created where you can choose if you really want to join the group, accept or decline. Here, no joining invites will be received by the user from the group admins. Users can still join a group through the group link invite, no matter what their group invite settings are.

Nobody: You can not be directly added in groups, in any situation, and will receive a request every time.
