WhatsApp is testing a new feature for its users, in which users can come out of a group silently. Currently, if a user exits the group, other members of the group get to know about it in the group. This will not happen after the introduction of the new feature. The new move of the instant messaging app will give an opportunity for people to leave the group without any hesitation. This can definitely prove to be a handy feature for many people.
However, likely to be released for Android and iOS versions as well.
According to a screenshot shared by WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, the instant messaging app will notify users who exit a group that only they and the group’s admins will be notified of their exit. This means that other members of the group will not be able to see that one of them has left the group.
Only the exiting user group admin will get the exit notification
As we mentioned, currently, when a user exits a group, WhatsApp shows an auto-generated notification. This information is visible to all the members of that group as well as the admin.
WhatsApp announced the ability to leave groups silently a few days ago while giving information about its community feature. However, when exactly it will be available for users, the exact details are yet to be disclosed.
The WABetaInfo report states that the screenshot he has shared has been taken from the recent WhatsApp Desktop beta. However, this change is likely to be available for Android and iOS versions as well.
The feature has currently been spotted in WhatsApp Desktop beta but is very likely to also come to WhatsApp beta for Android and iOS later on. As with most features in testing, this one should also come to all devices with WhatsApp when a stable update rolls out, perhaps in a couple of months.
