“Group admins can manage membership approval by manually approving or rejecting requests from anyone who wishes to join by toggling this option,” said the app-tracking website.

The new update is available within the group settings section. Once the option is enabled, those who want to join the group will be approved by a group administrator.

“When new members want to join the group and this option is enabled, group admins can review them by opening ‘Pending participants’ within the group info screen or tapping the in-chat banner,” said WaBetaInfo.

Through this feature, admins can ensure that the relevant people are added even when they join by using an invite link.

This feature is very useful for large groups and communities as it can get hard to manage them.
