WhatsApp administrators can now control participants' ability to send messages

WhatsApp tweak Now admins will decide who can post to the group

It's common to speak of Instagram, the Facebook-owned photo-app-now-social-network, borrowing from Snapchat, but now Facebook's WhatsApp chat app is increasingly drawing its innovation from others such as Telegram.

The launch of new features came days after the company told the New York Times it planned to give group administrators more control. The first thing mentioned in the changelog is the new option now available to group admins that enables them to choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. This would be useful for a lecturer to create an announcement group for a class for example, without the danger of off-topic conversations or important messages being lost in the conversation.

Additional Superintendent of Police SS Kanesh said 24-year-old Asif, a construction worker, was the main accused's accomplice. What's happening to this world? "We ask the government to give strictest of punishment to the accused", Gupta added.

Facebook has been criticized for allowing its end-to-end encryption chat app to be used as a means to spread fake news and to incite animosity toward racial or ethnic groups as a result of fake information, particularly during elections in India last month. Once the permission has been changed, all group participants will be notified in the group with a particular message. "We've introduced this new setting so admins can have better tools for these use cases", WhatsApp explains. So, WhatsApp for iOS is getting another update that adds a couple of new features and improvements aimed at group admins.

Meanwhile, a "protection" feature has also been introduced, so that users can not be repeatedly added to groups they have already left. The feature will be remotely activated for users of the latest version of WhatsApp stable for Android soon.
