As per WABetaInfo’s findings, the initial setting restricts the ability to add members directly to community administrators only. Nevertheless, some community administrators may opt for a setting that allows anyone to add members without requiring an invitation link.
In such instances, individuals may opt for the “everyone” alternative. In the forthcoming weeks, certain accounts may be granted access to this functionality if it has not already been made available to them.
According to the report, the functionality to regulate the individuals authorized to add members to community group chats is accessible to iOS users who download WhatsApp from the App Store.
In the meantime, it has been reported that WhatsApp is introducing a novel feature on Android, aimed at providing channel creators with updates regarding the status of their channels, particularly when they are blocked in particular countries.
This action is a response to legislations that mandate the platform to limit access to specific content within certain regions. With this feature, WhatsApp will be able to notify channel creators if their channel’s visibility is restricted in certain countries due to legal obligations.
