WhatsApp group admins will soon be able to see all joining requests, giving them more control over who can join a group, Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive officer of Meta Platforms, announced on Tuesday.

The messaging app will also introduce a new feature to make it easier to discover what groups you have in common with someone. These changes follow some updates made over the past few months, including making groups larger, and giving admins the ability to delete messages sent in the groups they manage. The new features will start rolling out globally over the coming weeks.
