As people turn to groups for important conversations, users have sought more control over their experience. This "new privacy setting and invite system" is meant to "help you decide who can add you to groups".
WhatsApp is now replacing "Nobody" with "My Contacts expect" which means users have to manually choose which contacts can not add them to groups. In the event you stay well mannered to not exit the WhatsApp group you have simply been added to by a member of the family or an old style mate, issues can get annoying actual quick with frequent buzzing and over-flooding gallery. Any group invite you receive will have three days validity before it expires. The new feature only empowers you to make that decision before joining the group instead of doing it after someone has added you to a group.
