The famous messaging application WhatsApp, owned by Meta, is soon going to roll out a new feature that will allow the group admins the authority to delete unnecessary messages from any of the group members.
The developers are currently testing the feature before they give it the green light.
WhatsApp is going to provide group admins the ability to determine whether messages should be kept in the chats or deleted for everyone.
WABetaInfo released some notes regarding the future update along with a screenshot showing how the deleted messages would appear for the group members.
When a message will get deleted by a group admin, the indication on the chat would read “This was removed by an admin.”
The feature will give more power to the admins, allowing them to control the group and its messages.
So far there haven’t been any updates on the release date of this feature, even for beta testers. Thus, it’s not known when WhatsApp might decide to introduce this feature.
Earlier, WhatsApp announced some more major features coming to their app. These features include the preview function of a voice note before sending it and the restriction of online status visibility for unknown people in order to enhance the privacy of the user.
