WhatsApp will update its linking platform and QR code groups so that they can be shared with contacts. The new tool will give attendees the opportunity to invite other users to chat in groups simply by sending the email address without going through the normal process and having more time for this to happen. The utility is still being tested with some users and when it comes out of beta it will be officially launched on the platform.
Other uses for QR
The update to version 2.16.281 will bring the possibility of links. After the upgrade, group admins can invite someone by clicking the «invitation link«. Therefore, those who do not want to be added to a group they have desired can also benefit from it.
The link can also be broken by the creator of the group if the situation gets out of control and unwanted people have access to it. The update will also add the QR code and the ability to share the group code via NFC.
