Group Privacy Settings

This Group Privacy Settings was spotted in the latest Android and iOS beta of WhatsApp Messenger before getting a newly added feature which lets you make an exception of who can add you to groups. This is similar to the WhatsApp status feature which allows you to prevent some contacts from viewing it.

Other reported features also include the ability to listening to voice messages consecutively on the desktop version and Web version of the app as well.
