The latest update of WhatsApp is certainly a boon for WhatsApp group admins. The new features included in the new WhatsApp update involves a feature that enables admins to allow only a few people to send messages to the group.
In order to activate the feature, you need to go to the admin panel of your WhatsApp group and enable or disable members from messaging.
The messaging giant has been rolled out the update this week with a thought of making group messaging a better place for users. If you have been looking for a blow to the annoying WhatsApp group messages then the update is the best thing you could have.
“Today, we’re launching a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to a group,” announced WhatsApp on its blog. It also added that the update meant to enhance group experience
It said that the messaging service was launching a new group setting where the group admins would be enabled to send a message to a group. This would be extremely handy for groups created by teachers, schools, offices and other communities. Through this feature, the admin can convey important information to the group members.
In order to enable this setting on your WhatsApp, you need to follow the following tutorial. “Group Info,” tap Group Settings > Send Messages and select “Only Admins.”
This setting update has been loved by WhatsApp users worldwide. “One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centers, and non-profit organizations. We’ve introduced this new setting so admins can have better tools for these use cases.” – said WhatsApp.
Furthermore, the feature aims towards improving the interface of the App. It would also launch a setting that would enable users from being re-added to a group after having left once. WhatsApp had announced that it would launch the update for all the users globally which currently amounts to more than 1 billion.
A downside of the update is that it would not be functional of devices that are running on an obsolete operating system.
