WhatsApp Groups: New Changes
Will Cathcart, head of WhatsApp, said, “You can now mute or message specific people on a call (great if someone forgets to mute themselves!), and we’ve added a helpful indicator so you can more easily see when more people join large calls”.
That was for WhatsApp Group Calls.
Now, let’s understand the other newly spotted WhatsApp feature that’s reportedly in the works.
Going forward, whence you try joining a group, the request for the same could go to the group admin who can either approve or reject it. The admin will have to enable a toggle within group settings for this enhanced power.
The group admin will find all approval requests in a new section with group info.
As per WABetaInfo who leaked this upcoming WhatsApp feature, this will allow the group admin to better manage the quality of the group. Let’s see.
