With the latest WhatsApp update, we have heard many people complain about the font size. It indeed is very bothersome. The small font size looks like a medium. But you have got to read the new cool features that they added. The best new feature is to Restrict and Allow People to Add You to a Whatsapp Group

Before it was different. Anyone outside or in your contact list could add you to the group. Which was pretty annoying.

Some people used to mischievously add people to groups and exit themselves. I have done it, it was kind of fun. But the fun is over. Now you can restrict contacts from adding you. There are 3 options, you can allow everyone to add you. You can allow only your contacts to add you to a group or you can restrict some of your contacts to add you to a group.
