Whatsapp is currently testing new features on its messaging app. In its latest beta version update to 2.16.281, the company introduced the ability to share link invitation to public groups.

The update allows WhastApp group admin to send invitation to other people, asking them to join their group via a link which reads, “Invite to group via link.” In addition, the app also gives users an option to share the link via a third-party application, QR code or written to a NFC tag.
