WhatsApp’s new feature gives more control to group admins: How it works

Telegram WhatsApp’s new feature gives more control to group admins: How it works
Sandy Mccarthy | 01 July, 2018, 21:28

The first thing mentioned in the changelog is the new option now available to group admins that enables them to choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. The application now allows users to download their data and transfer it.

The feature would let admins set up a group where only admins are able to send messages.

WhatsApp is giving more control to admins on their groups.

If you have not received the latest WhatsApp update, go to your app store, and manually update the application.

After WhatsApp pushed out an update focusing on group admins to Android users early this month, the developer has chose to bring more options to iOS fans as well.

These features are now available for Android and iPhone devices.

More information about the Adidas data breach will likely be revealed once the company finishes its investigation into the matter. Well, Adidas is in the process of conducting a forensic review and is alerting customers it believes could be affected.

Still, the fact that WhatsApp requires users to provide a phone number to join groups - anyone's number can be looked up by any group member - is one issue when it comes to creating or joining public groups.

The feature is a server-side switch and is now being rolled out to Android and Windows Phone users.

When a new person joins a group, the description will show up at the top of the chat, the Facebook-owned company added.

Apart from the focus on group users, WhatsApp has also enabled a number of privacy-related features. However, users can quickly contact administrators if they want an important message to be sent. The "Send Messages" feature is a useful addition that can remove group clutter.
