This privacy feature has come as a big relief, especially for those users who were irritated by getting randomly added to the WhatsApp groups. This new feature lets the users choose as to who can add them to the group chats. Under the privacy menu of WhatsApp, one can select between three options: Nobody, Everyone, My Contacts.
Nobody – will prevent anyone from adding you to a group
Everybody – is a setting that allows anybody from adding you to a Whatsapp group,
My Contact – limits this power to only people saved on your phone contact number.

ALGORITHM-BASED STATUS UPDATES
With this feature status updates of users on WhatsApp will show updates according to the importance rather than chronological order. It means is that users will now be able to see the of their frequently contacted people first.
