With the latest WhatsApp update for the iOS version(2.16.12), now you can invite people to WhatsApp group by just sharing a link. Here at TechUntold, we keep a close eye on all the new updates of WhatsApp and this time there is a change made to how you can invite users to WhatsApp group. Here in this article, we will share to how to create WhatsApp group Invite link.
Previously, you could only add people to group by selecting their names. Here’s how.
1. Open WhatsApp and go to Group info by tapping on the group name at the top.
2. Under Group Info select Add Participants.
3. On the next screen, select the desired users you want to add to the group and select Add at the top left corner.
Now, with the new update, you can invite/ add people to the group by sharing a link.
Add/Invite People To WhatsApp Group With A Link
1. The first step remains the same as you need to go to the WhatsApp Group Info.
2. Now select Invite to Group via Link.
3. On the next screen, there are multiple options wherein you can choose to share a link(Share Link) via FB messenger, Email, WhatsApp, Twitter etc. or you can simply copy the link using Copy Link option and send to the desired person.
4. For now, I will choose Share Link and select WhatsApp.
5. Select the contacts whom you want to send the Group Invite link to and tap on Send at the bottom right corner.
That is it, the group invite link is sent. Now the recipient can click on that link and the user will be added to the group.
That was the major inclusion in the latest WhatsApp update. Apart from that, now the Profile pic is moved to the left corner and is separated from the WhatsApp calling button. So, no more calling someone accidentally while viewing their profile pic 😛
It is also possible to draw and add text, Emoji’s to photos and videos while sending them similar to Instagram Stories. It makes messaging more interactive and interesting.
If you are an iOS user then I recommend you to read how to send WhatsApp messages using Siri.
