In recent years WhatsApp has been working on implementing new features that have been requested by users, especially for group chats; undoubtedly one of the most used functions since they facilitate communication with a group of friends, family and even co-workers.

That’s why, WhatsApp knows that chatting between three or more people requires more functionality than the classic chat. Among them, those destined to maintain order.

If something is missing in WhatsApp groups, it is to have more control over who can join them. These days, all it takes is a link to join a group chat, even if group members don’t agree. In such a situation, the platform is working on a feature to prevent unwanted users.

What is the new function that WhatsApp prepares?

In particular, the novelty will allow group administrators receive notifications when a user tries to join. In fact, from the same alert, it is possible to approve or deny their access quickly and easily.

The suggestion, of course, would help avoid that awkward moment by eliminating users whose presence makes the rest of the participants uncomfortable. The only drawback is that administrators may now have to explain why the person has been rejected.

It should be noted that access authorization must be manually enabled in the chat settings. If you want, you can leave the door open for anyone to enter, as it normally works in WhatsApp.

Of course, Communities will also be useful for large groups of people looking for more order by segmenting conversations into more specific topics. So far, it is known that this feature will support up to 10 groups in the community, although this number may increase in the future.

Although there is no specific date for WhatsApp Communities, a few weeks ago the beta version began in several countries, which suggests that it will arrive soon.

However, it is important to note that chat administrators will not be required to create a Community to manage their chats. This will be a completely optional feature.
