When it comes to group calls, now you can: Mute others, Message specific people, See a banner when someone joins offscreen.

WhatsApp is going through a series of updates and most of them are concerned about groups. According to a report from WABetainfo, WhatsApp is also working on a new feature for a future update that will enable the participants of a group to give their approval before a new member is added to a specific group. The report further states that the group admin will have the authority of enabling or disabling this feature in the messaging platform. 

WhatsApp has also recently started beta testing for rich link previews and undo messages. The feature is all set to be introduced to all the users within the next couple of months. This update will allow the users to get rid of the irritating deleted message sign that appears when a person decides to delete his/her message for everyone. The messaging platform is coming up with a bunch of new updates in 2022 to compete with other platforms that are expanding their reach.
