WhatsApp will allow you to leave groups without notifying other users

Leave WhatsApp groups without notifications

A few days ago we learned that WhatsApp was integrating in the beta version of its application the search filters. This allowed us to more easily find what we are looking for through a series of parameters. The new function unveiled in the beta of WhatsApp for desktop is the possibility of leaving WhatsApp groups without alerting all users, administrators only. With the arrival of Communities and groups of up to 256 people, it is a good measure to avoid informing the entire group of a user's departure.

We can leave WhatsApp groups without anyone noticing

WhatsApp groups have been around for a long time. In the case that concerns us today too. When a user decides to leave a group, all users see a message alerting them to their departure. In fact, it takes up half the space of a normal message and sits in the center of the screen. However, this could change soon.

The team BetaInfo has found a new change related to dropouts within groups. This new function has appeared in the beta of WhatsApp Desktop but it will come to iOS and Android without any doubt in case the messaging service gives the green light to the change.

This change makes the output of a WhatsApp group invisible to other users. With a exception. All departures will be notified to the group administrators. This may be in line, as we have mentioned, with the arrival of the Communities in the coming months, a series of platforms where the groups will be the center of attention. And the truth is that the departure of users should not capture the attention of the groups as they currently do when someone leaves.

We will see if WhatsApp finally decides to apply this change to its entire infrastructure. In case of doing so, both iOS, Android, the web version and the desktop version would be updated avoiding the annoying messages of group abandonment by users.
