WhatsApp Status Updates-WhatsApp may soon allow users to sort status updates


As reported by Mashable, the company is testing a new algorithm that will enable its users to sort WhatsApp Status updates based on their preference. WhatsApp Status update is similar to the Snapchat stories and was introduced in 2017.

The Mashable report suggests that the ability to sort updates for now will be tested among a small set of iPhone users in Brazil, Spain, and India. It may be rolled out to more users in coming months.



WhatsApp Group Invitation feature

In related news, the social messaging app is also planning to introduce WhatsApp Group Invitation feature. It will make the groups less annoying. As reported by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp users will have an option to choose either to join a group or not. Once the feature is rolled out, WhatsApp will seek permission every time an individual is added in a group. It is expected that the company may soon roll out the feature to iOS Beta.






It is important to note that the feature will not be automatically activated. Users will have to opt for it under the Settings section. Following the path Settings>>Account>>Privacy>>Groups, they can select three options for ‘who can add me to groups’. These will include Everybody, My Contacts and Nobody.
