WhatsApp supposed to add Mentions and Group Invite Links

WhatsApp this date has become one of the most popular messaging platforms for users across the globe & WhatsApp is also promptly introducing new features to attract the attention of users primarily. In addition, recently WhatsApp is planning to introduce two new features i.e. “Mentions” and “Group Invite Links” to its messenger. The “mention” feature will attract the attention users in the group instantly and using the “Group Invite Links” users can add someone easily to the group.


Recently, WhatsApp is in news to have introduced both the features in a beta build for the iOS users. The “Mention” feature is in rumour to be in testing phase for few days & this feature is only suitable to use in group conversation where there would enough friends. This feature will be of no use to attract the attention of an individual. The “mention” feature in WhatsApp will be almost equivalent to that of Facebook, but will be available in a different color text.
