We can now download WhatsApp for Android with invitations to groups via links to the new beta version of the application. Specifically it is the new version 2.16.281, an update with many new features, but where is the possibility of inviting our groups via links or QR code. To do this, from a group that you manage, press the menu button and go to “Group info” option. Now click on the “Add Participant” option and see the new option “Invite the group link”.
If you click on the “Invite to group via link”, you see that you can share the link created in your group using WhatsApp or other application, but also if you click on the menu we can see the “Print group QR code” option, which we will create a QR (still uses anyone?) code that we can also invite our group of WhatsApp. Once you sent the invitation to the contact that you have sent, as you can see in the screenshot.
Another new feature that we find in this new version of WhatsApp for Android, besides the usual bug fixes and improvements translations and overall performance of the application is a new forwarding button that appear on the left side of the multimedia files that we have shared or received in a chat.
