At Voxer, we live by the code "the more the merrier." The more people added to the group chat, the better! But what’s a group chat if you can’t easily invite people, whether they’re on Voxer or not? Now you can share an invite link, unique to each group chat!
This chat link will allow you to invite people who aren’t already on Voxer, current users or users you can’t find in the app contacts. You can share links anyway you like, via email, text message, or social media. When someone clicks on the chat link, they will either be sent to the App Store or Play Store (if they do not have the app), or directly into the chat!
Also two things to keep in mind: 1) Share links with care because once the link is provided/shared, anyone can drop into that chat) 2) If Admin Control is turned on, the chat link will not work as the Admin is the only one who can add or remove users.

- Once you’ve made your selection, a message will appear and viola! You've shared the link!
