WhatsApp is working on some cool updates in the future. The messaging app will now give more power to group admins. According to reports, WhatsApp will now allow group admins to delete messages from all group members. The Meta-owned messaging app has started rolling out the feature for some beta testers. The upcoming feature would allow group admins to better moderate their groups.
At a time when misinformation is so prevalent in India, WhatsApp plans to give more control to group admins so they can wield their power well and prevent misinformation from spreading. For this, the group administrator must be more alert and aware of what is happening in the group. Wabetainfo reported that WhatsApp group admins will soon be able to delete messages from all group members. For now, only select beta testers have access to the feature, but WhatsApp may be rolling it out in the coming days.
If you’re a beta user and an admin of a group, you can try deleting an incoming message and you see the “delete for everyone” option. This means the feature is available.
“When you delete a message for everyone, sent by another group participant, other people can still see that you deleted this message since your name appears in the chat bubble. If the feature is not available for your account, don’t worry: the rollout of this feature is incredibly slow and only a few lucky beta testers can experience it already, so it will surely take a long time before it gets activated on other WhatsApp accounts. Admin removal is available to some lucky beta users today, with more activations to follow over the coming weeks,” the Wabetainfo report reads.
