WhatsApp is working on another feature that will allow admins to approve requests before allowing people to join a group

WhatsApp has always been one of the most used chatting apps in the world and rightly so. The app was created by Brian Acton and Jan Koum and then was bought by Meta, the parent company of Facebook. The app is used by millions of people in the world to keep up with their friends, and talk to their loved ones and is also used for work purposes as well.

As we all know, every app needs updates to stay on top of things and help its users stay connected, and make the app easier for them to use. WhatsApp is no exception to this as they have announced two new updates.

The first update allows the group admins to first approve anyone who wants to join a group somewhat like how private groups work on Facebook. This feature is still in the works (as reported by WABI) but thankfully with the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.18.10 update, we have been given a screenshot as to what will happen when the group admins will enable this feature.


Like we said before, on Facebook users have to send in a request to the admins of the group to be approved into the group. It looks like the same is going to happen with WhatsApp groups as well because with this feature whenever a person will add someone to the group the admins will be able to see and the added user will go into the waiting list from where the admin will have to approve them into the group.


This feature is meant to be a moderation tool that will aid the admins in better managing their group. This feature will help admins better control who gets in the group and will ultimately aid them in bettering the content shared in the group. This feature is currently under development and it is not clear when this feature will be available to the users, even to the Beta ones.
