I am member of a whatsapp group. My name is present in the group member's list. Nobody has removed me. But when I send any message I get the error not a member of this group cannot send any message. Friends also confirm that message has not arrived. Strangely though I can read new posts in the group but cannot see the group icon. I have no clue about how this can happen.

  • Try clearing the data for the app (you'll lose your messages) and then log in again. Apr 1, 2016 at 19:32
  • Thanks but do I have to clear the data for google drive backup too or just local data?
