Horror in the WhatsApp groups: companies will soon be able to enter

On the day we have known that the arrival of advertising to WhatsApp is imminent , even if it is on the part of an old and beloved one known as Netflix . Meanwhile, we only have the consolation of knowing that although we are informed of our favorite series, being in the groups will be much better thanks to the new tools that WhatsApp has implemented .

Yes, you can learn more about why the groups, the searches are faster and more efficient, updating is easier and if you are an administrator, you can restrict much more privacy options and even eliminate permissions of the participants. But there’s still something they can not do: invite WhatsApp accounts for business .

And is that if we all have something of fear about how the new WhatsApp will be that integrates companies that can communicate with us, mostly to avoid the continuous advertising bombardment , we do not even want to imagine how these professional accounts will come into a group. You can be calm, today is not possible.

Companies stay out of WhatsApp groups ‘

It is a measure aimed at protecting our privacy, so that spam is avoided as much as possible . And we have tested it with the most famous company that works on WhatsApp. Yes, again with Netflix.

When trying to add Netflix to a group, the server has rejected the request immediately in WhatsApp for iOS. However, there could be a way to be invited and access : if you are invited through a link.

This option opens the possibility that in the future, WhatsApp will implement an additional security function in groups that prevents the invitation through links, increasing privacy.
