The latest development of Whatsapp will very soon give more power to the administrators of Whatsapp. The most popular messaging platform made some changes in the beta at the start of this week. They showed the new “Send Messages” section which was seen as making the changes in the groups. Now, Whatsapp has officially announced that it has added a new feature that will give more authority to admins to manage the group effectively. They can now control messages more effectively to keep the group consistent for the members. This new change will give more authority to administrators.
Whatsapp has started rolling out the feature for users. The feature will be available for Android users as well as iPhone users. If you haven’t received the feature, you will receive it soon. The company was testing the feature on beta versions, but has now included it in the stable release. The feature empowers administrators to restrict the number of users to send messages. Therefore, this feature will be useful for different businesses in the coming days. Many other organizations and various groups will benefit from this function.
The functionality is currently limited to a few functions. Primary group admins can remove new admins, but at this time they can’t block messages. Non-administrators will not be able to send the message to the group if the administrator decides to exclude certain users. Administrators would be able to make the necessary changes through “Group Settings”. Therefore, it is understandable that these functions may come in handy in the times to come. If you are an Android user, you can find this feature in version 2.18.201. Likewise, iOS version 2.18.70 has this function. Some users may find the new function in older versions of Whatsapp, but you need to update the version to check all the features thoroughly.
Whatsapp frequently adds functions to the platform. Whatsapp was testing this feature from May and is now ready to offer this feature to all users. Group admins can now grant permission to edit the group item as per the requirement. There are many other functions that we will see very soon. Currently, group admins can give permission to change the icon as well as the descriptions. They can also change the subject with ease. Stay tuned for more news.
