Zuckerberg also unveiled a feature that facilitates users to discover which groups are common among someone.  The company claims that it wants to offer admins more control over the privacy of their groups. Hence, it created a simple tool to allow admins to swiftly select who is allowed or not to join a group. An admin may now access all of the requests in one location to manage who to admit when they choose to post their group's invite link or make their group joinable in a community. Administrators may now reject or accept users by clicking an "X" or a checkmark with the arrival of this new feature.  In addition, WhatsApp wishes to make it simpler for users to discover which groups they share with others. Users may now use the app to look for a contact’s name to check their common groups. This new functionality can be used if you are having trouble remembering the name of a group you both share or if you just want to check the groups you are both in.  [caption id="attachment_124489" align="aligncenter" width="1200"]WhatsApp Group Image Source: Gizbot[/caption] A few months ago, WhatsApp introduced Communities, a new feature that offers bigger, and more organized discussion groups. Admin controls, support for sub-groups and announcement groups, 32-person phone and video conferences, larger-file sharing, emoji reactions, and surveys are just a few of the additional features that communities provide to the messaging platform. “Last year, we rolled out Communities to help people get the most out of their groups on WhatsApp,” the business conglomerate said in an emailed press release. “Since launching, we’ve wanted to build even more tools for admins and users alike. Today we’re excited to roll out a few new changes we’ve made to make groups more manageable for admins and easier to navigate for everyone.” The two new features will roll out internationally over the coming weeks.
