Generate WhatsApp group invitation link to invite people to group

WhatsApp introduced a new feature which enabled group admins to generate a link which they can share with anybody and people can join WhatsApp group by just accessing that link.

    How would someone be able to join the group by scanning the printed qr code?
    Do they need to install another app. Whatsapp only have the “WhatsApp web” feature to scan from pc/browser.

      You need to scan the QR code with your camera app. Most of the camera apps have inbuilt QR scanner. Once you scan the code, you will get the group name and the option to join . If your camera app not able to detect the code, just install a QR scanning app from playstore.
