WhatsApp 'Demote as Admin' Feature Being Tested for Group Chats

WhatsApp 'Demote as Admin' Feature Being Tested for Group Chats

As usual, this feature is spotted by WhatsApp watcher WABetaInfo.

It is reportedly planning a "Dismiss As Admin" feature which will let users demote the leaders of group chats.

WhatsApp is now testing the feature on both Android and iOS beta versions.

The new power will only be afforded to people who are already admins of a group, who will be able to give people the boot in the "Group Info" menu.

WhatsApp for Android is adding new features at a rapid pace in the Beta. One of the newest features rolled out to the group admins is the ability to create Restricted Groups that will restrict the other members of the group from sending any kind of message, be it text, photos, videos, GIFs, documents or voice messages. This feature makes it easy for admins to demote or dismiss an existing administrator in a group. The instant messaging has also submitted the Restricted Groups setting in the version 2.17.430 via Google Play Beta Programme. They can still send messages using the Message Admin button and these have to be approved by the admin. It allows admins to share media and chat even when other members are restricted.

Well, with all these powers vested in the group admins, we wonder if other participants would like being there.

Anyone who is ejected from a group will be sent a rather brutal message telling them it's protected by end-to-end encryption, which means they won't be able to contribute. What are your thoughts on all these expected features for group chats? head to the comments section below and let us know.
