WhatsApp’s new feature that gives more control to group admins comes into the picture when an invite link to a WhatsApp group has been circulated. The admins will now be able to view all entry requests in one place and can thereby choose to grant admission to relevant users only. Along with this, WhatsApp has also rolled out a handy feature that lets users see the groups that are common with a particular contact. To use this, one can search for a contact on WhatsApp, and the app will automatically flash the groups that are common with the contact right below the search bar.
