How to Create a WhatsApp Group Link on Mobile and PC

Whatsapp Invite To Group Link

The typical way of adding people to WhatsApp groups is restrictive in nature. You cannot add people who aren’t in your contacts. That’s where adding them via group links can help. Group links can be shared with anyone, thus also increasing the reach of your group. Let’s see how to create a WhatsApp group link on Android, iPhone, and PC.

How do Group Links Work on WhatsApp

Before we jump to the steps, it’s vital to know a few important things about the WhatsApp group link.

  • You need to be the admin of the group to get the group link. A regular member cannot create a group link. However, if the admin has shared the group link in the group, other members can forward it.
  • The group link isn’t permanent. An admin can reset it anytime and create a new link. The old link will become nonfunctional.
  • You can share group links within or outside of WhatsApp.
  • WhatsApp group links can be forwarded to anyone, so be careful while sharing them. For instance, if you share a group’s link with one of your friends, they can share it with more people. Those people can join your group without any additional approval from your end.
  • People who join a group using its link will not be able to see the past group messages.
