WhatsApp's new feature to give more power to group admins

Once restricted, other members will simply have to read their messages and will not be able to respond. Bringing features like "Restricted Groups" makes sense given that a group has several members and some major announcement by the admin can go unnoticed amidst several other comments.

The message will need to be approved by the administrator before going through to the rest of the group.

WhatsApp keeps testing new features through its beta program before it's rolled out to all the users around the world. The group administrators are also allowed to create restricted groups and to disable the cat features; meaning that the group members will not be able to send messages, files or media files. The recent update from this favorite messenger will increase the authority of the group admin.

- An admin can restrict all members (except the admins) from sending messages to the group.

Furthermore, Administrators would be able to disable the chat features in the group (restricted group feature).

According to WABetaInfo, a website that often leaks new WhatsApp features based on the beta builds of the app, the messaging app is coming out with a new feature called Restricted Groups.

WhatsApp, an instant messaging service with over 1.2 billion monthly active users, is likely to come with a new update version 2.17.430 containing some bug fixes, general improvements and a novel feature.

The problem has become so big that in some instances police and law enforcement agencies have issued notifications that they will hold the WhatsApp group administrators responsible if unlawful messages, videos or pictures are shared in a group.

Moreover, they will also be presented with two options - Message Admin and Mute. He will be able to send messages, videos, photographs, Gif's, documents, and voice messages.

- Any admin of a group can enable the restrictions, and the settings can be changed only every 72 hours. You can also navigate to another chat while watching the video. These activities include modification of the subject of the group, icons, and their descriptions.
