WhatsApp Gets New Controls for Group Admins

Posted March 22, 2023 at 2:03pm by iClarified
WhatsApp has announced a few changes to make groups easier to navigate and more manageable for admins. These include the ability to search for a contact's name to see what groups you have in common, as well as, the ability for admins to decide who can join a group.

New Controls for Admins
As more people join communities, we want to give group admins more control over their group privacy, so we've built a simple tool that gives admins the ability to decide who is able to join a 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.

Easily See Groups in Common
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.

WhatsApp says these features will start rolling out globally over the coming weeks.

You can download WhatsApp Messenger from the App Store for free.
