WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging app in the world with more than 1.5 billion active users. The Facebook-owned company has recently rolled out many new features for its instant messaging WhatsApp app to make chatting more interesting and easy as well. One of the features is the QR Code for your WhatsApp Group to invite new members to join the group.
Now you can create a QR Code of your own WhatsApp Group to invite members via it. This feature is similar to the invite via link feature.
The QR Code feature is a much-awaited feature which lets new members join a WhatsApp Group easily. If you’re the admin of any group then you can generate your own WhatsApp Group’s QR Code to invite new members to join it. The invited members can scan this QR Code to join the group.
Let’s get to know the steps to create a WhatsApp group QR Code.
1. Open WhatsApp and then the group for which you want to generate a QR code.
2. There are two ways to open the group info:
a. By tapping on the group subject or on the group name.
b. By tapping on the ellipsis (3 vertical dots) (⋮) and choose “Group info“.
3. Now scroll down a bit and tap on the “Invite vial link“.
4. After tapping on the invite via the link, the “Invite Link” page will open.
5. In the Invite Link page, tap on the three dots (⋮) at the right hand’s top corner.
6. Hereafter, tap on the “Print group QR code“.
7. Finally, you can take a screenshot of your group’s QR code or print it as a pdf.
Now you can share it with your friends, relatives and co-workers to invite them to join your WhatsApp Group by scanning the QR code.
How to Scan and Join?
WhatsApp doesn’t offer a native way to scan a QR code. So there is no built-in scanning feature on WhatsApp. Once generated QR code is shared, people can scan this QR code with the use of default camera which comes equipped with a QR code scanner. You can also use any third-party QR code scanner in case your camera does not have inbuilt QR scanner feature.
What are the benefits of Generating WhatsApp Group QR Code?
WhatsApp Group QR code has tons of benefits. It helps the admin to add new members hassle-free. There is no need to manually type and save the contacts in the group. Apart from this, the WhatsApp group QR code is very handy for organizations, education institutions, gym trainer, librarian and the like.
