There is a new functionality that has entered the testing phase of WhatsApp, and it promises more control and regulation for group admins. In particular, when choosing who can or cannot participate in a WhatsApp group. Grandma creates a kind of queue for users who want to join a group through the link.

The new feature was called “Group Membership Consent”, in a free translation into Portuguese. In short, it adds a new field that allows administrators to consult who has submitted a request to participate. It will then be possible to approve or deny entry to these new users.

Approval of WhatsApp group participants

In short, the WABetaInfo website said that users discovered the novelty while running the beta version of WhatsApp (2.22.14.6) for Android. The portal also said that the function must be enabled by administrators. Therefore, it means that it will not be a standard tool for the application.

As for user consents, they must take place within the groups themselves, and in the respective area providing more information about them. Below, check out a screenshot indicating the new feature is turned on:

In addition, despite the novelty, the tool that turns into the approval or disapproval of the participants of a WhatsApp group still does not have a specific date to officially appear in all applications. Therefore, it is necessary to wait for the official release of the application.

Finally, although the launch is only happening for Android mobile phones, the new functionality is expected to also launch on iOS devices.
