WhatsApp’s upcoming feature will give more power to group admins
WhatsApp is reportedly planning to launch a new feature that will allow group admins to delete inappropriate messages send by a member for everyone in the group. This feature will provide more authority to the group admins of chat groups.
According to a report in XDA Developers, the Meta owned instant-messaging is currently testing the feature. With, this upcoming feature, group admins can delete messages for everyone in the group.
Let us tell you that, WhatsApp currently only allows its users to delete their own chat messages in a group. The group admins does not have the ability to remove messages sent by other members in the group. However, they can remove a group member, restrict them from sending messages in the group.

The group members whose messages were deleted will receive a notification message that will notify them that the said message/media was deleted by admin. If there are mor than one admin in the group then the message will show the name of the admin who deleted the message.
