WhatsApp group chat adds option allowing only admins to send messages

Instant-messaging platform WhatsApp, owned by social media firm Facebook, has rolled out globally a new feature that lets only group administrators send out messages and more in a one-way stream.

For months now, WhatsApp has been working on this new feature which allows group admins to restrict participants from sending messages to the group. There's a new setting that only allows admins to send messages to a group. "One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centres, and non-profit organisations". WhatsApp, in this respect, is less useful for large groups of strangers as it still shows the phone numbers of everyone that joined. This feature is aimed to tackle these issues. It is not only controlled by group admins but any member can do it. WhatsApp has continuously been making some or the other update to make the service more effective and enjoyable. Before this feature, it was necessary to remove the person from the group and adding them again, in order to revoke its group admin features. Or as a secondary channel for keeping people updated without information being lost in the chat. Group admins now have controls to monitor who among the group members can change the group's subject, icon, and description.
