Instant messaging app WhatsApp announced a new privacy feature for Indian users a few months ago. These privacy features are specific to the Group. While the company said that this feature will be offered to Android and iOS users.

Under these new features, no users can add any other users to any group without their approval. Now this feature is being extended to more users. According to a media report, the company is increasing support for this feature. The group privacy setting is increasingly being offered to Android and iOS users. This is necessary because some of these earlier users were added to any group without their consent.

However, users will now be informed more about these features when updating the app. Here users will find a screen where new group privacy settings are reported. Some options will be found in these settings. In which everyone, My Contacts or Nobody will go. If users select Nobody, then if one adds users to the group, then users will have an invitations request which they can access and declare. However after the update the Nobody feature has been replaced and the My Contacts except option has been given instead. That means you can now decide who can add to your group and who won't.

Check for the new option by going to WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups. The three options that now show up include Everyone, My Contacts, and My Contacts Except. When the feature first rolled out, there was a Nobody option, instead of the My Contacts Except option. This new option will let you select the users who have to gain approval before adding you to a group. You can either select a few users, or click on the Select All option to include the entire contact list.

WhatsApp, the most popular messaging application in the world, is working on some interesting features for the Android and iOS platforms. Some of these were spotted in the recent WhatsApp beta update for both smartphone operating systems. These include the much-awaited Dark Mode, self-destructing messages, option to hide muted status, and a splash screen on both Android and iOS.

Here's a look at what the upcoming updates for WhatsApp on Android and iOS could bring for the users:

Dark Mode

WhatsApp users have asked for a Dark Mode for quite long, as the feature has grown in popularity across other apps. Although a Dark Mode has been spotted in earlier beta versions of WhatsApp, it is yet to be brought to its stable version. Although the feature is still under development, WhatsApp has revealed that it is getting closer to releasing a Dark Mode in the stable version of the messaging application. Screenshots of the latest WhatsApp beta version also showed dark text bubbles too.

Self-destructing messages

WhatsApp had introduced 'Delete for Everyone' feature for all its users a while back. Now the messaging platform is going to introduce self-destructing messages soon. This will allow users to recall a message after 5 seconds, 1 hour, 1 day, 7 days, or even 30 days. This will be similar to snaps send via Snapchat.

Hide muted status

The upcoming WhatsApp update might come with a hide muted status feature. The feature has been spotted in the latest beta version. It will allow users to hide all status updates from those muted in their contact list. Under this feature, a 'Hide' button will be seen on the header of the muted status updates section. The hidden status updates can be restored by clicking the 'Show' button that will appear with them.
