WhatsApp is rolling out the feature to users worldwide on both Android and iOS. WhatsApp has brought a new group privacy setting for users in India. Finally, you can choose who can add you to a group, with an option to choose ‘nobody’.
WhatsApp has now added a new blacklist option in the privacy settings. Essentially, the update will allow users to choose between three options, each altering who can and can’t immediately add you to a group chat. Now you can check your group privacy settings, under the setting, alongside ‘Everyone’ and ‘My Contacts’, and the third option ‘My Contact Except’.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp is remotely activating the feature in iOS beta version 126.96.36.199 and Android beta version 2.19.298.
Apart from this new group privacy setting, WhatsApp has also started to roll out voice consecutive note playback feature to WhatsApp Web. If you receive multiple voice messages on a chat, you will just have to click play on the first voice note and all other consecutive messages will play one after other, with this new feature. This won’t help you with the series of voice notes you receive is interrupted by some other message or media file.
While we still don’t know when the new WhatsApp feature is arriving for every user. But Technovlogy will be here to update you the moment it goes live.
