In the following paragraphs we will go to show you all the instructions you need to know how to add a contact on a WhatsApp group.

Procedure: all steps

As we said, first of all you don't have to worry: we are talking about a really simple operation, so it only takes a little bit of your attention to do it. First, to add participants from a group, you must necessarily be an administrator of the group in question.

What's more, a group can have up to 256 participants. To add participants you need to follow exactly the steps you see below:

  • Open the WhatsApp group chat, then tap the group subject
  • Alternatively, press and hold the group on the screen CAT and touch Other options
  • Go up Group info
  • Toccata Add participant (icon with the little man and the +)
  • Search or select contacts to add to the group
  • Once done, tap on the green check mark

Great, now you shouldn't have any problems and be able to add participants to the group of your choice. It wasn't difficult, was it?

Why can't I add a contact on a WhatsApp group?

Despite the instructions we gave you, were you unable to add the contact you wanted to the group you created and managed? For this reason you are wondering to yourself "why can't i add a contact on a WhatsApp group?"

Well, probably this happens because you are not or are no longer the administrator of the group, or - more plausibly - the contact you want to add has set the privacy in such a way that it cannot be added in any group.

In the first case, you can directly ascertain you are still the admin of a group: just select the latter from the WhatsApp screen where all the chats are listed and see if next to your name there is the wording "Administrator". If not, obviously another admin has changed your role in the group.

In the second case, the contact you are unable to add may have set their privacy so that only a few may be able to add them to groups. If so, the only thing you can do is ask for an explanation directly from the contact in question.
