Whatsapp has been working on a new group moderation feature. The feature will allow group admins to delete a message for every participant in the group. if you are an admin of a WhatsApp group, you will see an option to delete anyone’s messages in your group. To recall, this feature was rumored sometime back, but finally, we can see how it might look.
The instant messaging app is getting a new feature that will allow group admins to delete any message for everyone. According to the report, the feature is set to allow group admins to moderate in a better way. The feature seems to be rolling out for users across the globe, and will show all members of the group when an admin deletes a message. While WhatsApp has not officially announced the feature yet, the WABetaInfo report says that it may already be rolling out to beta testers.
“As an admin, you are deleting (group’s) message for everyone in this chat. They will see that you deleted the message.” This feature could be useful at times to control the activity in a group. With this feature, admins could also be held responsible in case of some serious issues. As admins will be having more power over the content that’s being shared in the Whatsapp group.
If you are unable to delete incoming messages, do not worry as it may be rolled out to you soon. Whatsapp is experimenting with this feature with limited users, so if you get it, consider yourself lucky.
