WhatsApp was working for a long time to improve the group feature in their applications for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
In these months, WhatsApp has developed many hidden improvements to add to groups, and the first one is about the description of the group, released a few weeks ago, but today WhatsApp has enabled something else for all Android beta users..
- You need to update your WhatsApp version to the 2.18.132 Android update, in order to remotely receive the activation of the feature.
- As announced at the end of this post, another feature about groups (called Announcement) might be enabled very soon after the release of a new update, precisely after this date: 6 May 2018.
AVAILABLE TODAY FOR ANDROID BETA USERS!
Since today, WhatsApp is rolling out for all iOS, Android and Windows Phone users the Restrict Group, feature that adds “Privacy settings” in the group.
All participants can normally edit the group description, icon and subject, but finally the administrator can restrict this feature today, preventing no-administrators to modify the group description.
This action can be managed in the Admin Settings, a new option located in Group Info that’s visible to the administrator only.
In Admin Settings, the administrator can restrict who can change the group info.
You need to update your WhatsApp version to the 2.18.132 Android update on Google Play, in order to remotely receive the activation of this feature, as above mentioned.
Let us know on Twitter if you like this feature and read our next announcements on our Telegram Channel!
