This WhatsApp update is powerful; check out how you benefit
WhatsApp has rolled out ‘Send Messages‘ feature for all the platforms- Android, iOS and Windows Phone. This particular feature will help the group admins to restrict participants from sending messages to the group. However, the messaging app had been working on this feature for a very long time, and finally, now it has been made available for the users, reports Telecom Talk.
According to the report, by handing over power to Group Info and Group Settings, the group admin can change the settings of Send Messages. There will be a new option of 'send messages' under the group settings. Hitting that will present two options- ‘Only Admins’ and ‘All Participants.’ If you select the Only
Admins option, then no participant in the group will be able to send messages going forward. As expected, WhatsApp will notify the participants in the group that the settings have been changed and they won’t be able to send messages anymore in the group.
No limit in modifying the 'send messages would be available and at any point of time the admin can change the settings back to 'all participants.' Whatsapp said that this will reduce the spam messages.
