Whatsapp will finally let you decide on whether to accept or reject group invitations

Perhaps you were always annoyed like me, when people could just add you to groups without your consent. Even if you could exit the group eventually, it unnecessarily sought your attention and besides, some group admins have the guts to add you back. Now the good news is that whatsapp will finally let you to decide on whether to accept or reject group invitations. So with this new feature you are notified of the request from the group admin then you decide to or not to join by accepting or rejecting the request.

According to WABetaInfo, this will be an option under settings in privacy settings that will let you control who can invite you to join a group and perhaps how you want to be invited. When the feature rolls in, it will be accessed by following the link Settings > Account > Privacy . When you get invited, you will recieve a request to join in your inbox, however if you do not respond to the request, it expires within 72 hours. Here is a snapshot of the feature under settings:

Well, this is a great addition to the great features of whatsapp. Telegram have had a lot of privacy and other handy features. If Whatsapp continues to add such great features, then Telegram will find it even more difficult to compete with this social media giant which is Telegram's major competitor.
