Big changes coming to WhatsApp... again

WhatsApp have announced that there will be more changes coming to the app in the near future.

WhatsApp will be adding new features to the app, such as three new options for groups, adverts, new themes, and disappearing messages. 

New options for groups

In a new settings menu dedicated to groups, users will be able to select one of three options: nobody, my contacts, and everyone.

The 'nobody' setting means you’ll have to approve joining every group to which you’re invited. ‘My Contacts’ means only users you have in your address book can add you to groups.

The person adding you to a group will have to send a private invite through an individual chat, giving you the choice of joining the group.


Facebook will be publishing ads on the WhatsApp status page, starting from 2020. 

New Themes

WhatsApp is developing a dark and light mode. 

Disappearing Messages

When the disappearing messages setting is turned on for a chat, all messages sent by participants will be removed after a certain time. 

WhatsApp messages will be automatically deleted from a chat after either five seconds or one hour.
