The report also revealed that, “WhatsApp verifies which features are used by their users. If the feature didn’t achieve success, it means it’s the moment to modify it. In this case, they have verified that the option is not used, so they might have thought it would have been better to remove it, maybe including a good replacement for the next updates.”
The WhatsApp Messenger Rooms Shortcut was first introduced in May 2020. According to a report, WhatsApp beta for iOS 2.21.190.11 and WhatsApp beta for Android 2.21.19.15 are the two beta versions on which WhatsApp has disabled the sharing functionality for iOS and Android respectively.
