WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature which would allow admins of the group to approve new member requests. This new update is for the beta testers as of now.
“Group admins can manage membership approval by manually approving or rejecting requests from anyone who wishes to join by toggling this option,” said the app-tracking website.
The latest update can be found in the group settings section. Those who want to join the group will be approved by a group administrator once the option is enabled.
“When new members want to join the group and this option is enabled, group admins can review them by opening ‘Pending participants’ within the group info screen or tapping the in-chat banner,” said WaBetaInfo.
Using this feature, administrators can ensure that the appropriate people are added even if they join via an invite link.
This feature is especially useful for large groups and communities, which can be difficult to manage.
