The new feature will be available under WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups.

(Web Desk) - New reports have suggested that WhatsApp has been working on a group feature that would allow users to have control on who could add them to a new group.

Currently, anyone can add other person in his contact list to a random WhatsApp group without his or her permission. The Group Invitation feature will be soon available for everyone for any iOS beta user that joined the TestFlight beta program in the next iOS update.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, work is being done on the new WhatsApp Group Invitation feature that could be made available in the upcoming updates along with some other improvements.

The new feature will be available under WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups.

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

Users can select ‘Everyone’ if they wish to be added to groups by anyone on WhatsApp. Similarly ‘My Contacts’ will allow only the user’s contacts to add them to groups.

If a user chooses ‘Nobody’, then a request will be sent by the admin to join the WhatsApp group. This request has an expiry time of 72 hours.

There will reportedly be a Group link — that will be created once the group is made — which can be used to join a group irrespective of the privacy option selected by the user.
