WhatsApp users can now avoid forced group chat with new update.

In the WhatsApp you can now better protect yourself from joining group chat in a new way.


WhatsApp replaces “Nobody” with “my contacts except” in the privacy setting. With this feature, specific people will not be able to drag you to group chat.


For example, now you can only allow your friends and family to add yourself to a group, but forbid office colleges and random friends from doing so.


As before, the group admins still cannot add you to the group, but you can send an invitation to join the group in PM. This invitation disappears after three days.


This feature has been released on Android and iOS device. The launch of this feature shows that inviting users to join groups is still a major issue for WhatsApp.

WhatsApp’s biggest problem is the spread of fake news, which the company continues to introduce new Updates to solve the problem.
