How to rejoin a group chat
If you want to rejoin a group chat you left, the group admin will need to re-invite you to the group. If you were the only group admin and left the group, another participant was chosen at random to become the new admin. You can ask the admin to re-invite you to the group and make you a group admin again.
Rejoin a group you've left twice
If you want to rejoin a group you’ve left twice, you must wait 24 hours before the group admin can re-invite you. To avoid the wait time, the admin can share a group invite link with you.
- Every time you leave a group, the amount of time you must wait to be re-added by the group admin exponentially increases. The maximum amount of time you’d have to wait would be 81 days.
- If you report a group as spam, you’ll be removed from the group. If you’d like to rejoin a group you reported, the group admin will need to re-invite you to the group.
- A group's chat history, including messages and media sent in the group, will only be available to a user that was a participant at the time the content was sent in that group.
