New WhatsApp Update Will Make Group Chat Admins Even More Powerful

Beware WhatsApp users – the popular messaging service is adding yet another tool to the arsenal of authoritative group chat admins.

as seen by WABetaInfo (opens in new tab), WhatsApp is working on a new update that will give admins the ability to delete any and all messages sent in group chats they oversee. At the moment, messages can only be deleted by the users who originally sent them, but this new feature – set to be released in beta soon – would share the privilege with admins.

However, all group participants will be notified if and when an admin deletes a message from the group, and admins will be advised of this fact before confirming the option to do so.

As part of a more imminent app update, WhatsApp users will also have more time to delete embarrassing or annoying group chat messages (let’s be honest: we’ve all been there…).
