Facebook-owned Instant Messaging Service WhatsApp’s Group Administrator will get more rights. Now admin can restrict group members from posting messages, photos, videos, gifs, documents and voice messages to the group.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has given the restricted groups feature in the version 2.17.430 of the Google Play Beta program.

The setting of “Restricted Groups” can only activate Group Admin. With this, the admin can send photos, videos, text in the group as usual, but can prevent other members from doing so.

With the settings of “Restricted Groups”, other members will be able to read the message in the group, but not be allowed to send anything without permission. They will be given the feature of ‘Message Admin’, so they will be able to share it with the group only after accepting their message by Group Admin.

In addition, WhatsApp announced to updated features, bug fixes and more improvements in upcoming updates. WhatsApp has more than 1.2 billion active users and available worldwide in 50 languages, including 10 Indian languages.

The new feature is still disabled by default and it is expected that in the coming time, it will be made available soon through a stable version. WhatsApp recently released “delete messages for everyone”, through which the user can withdraw messages sent to a group or user.
