The WhatsApp beta feature will allow group administrators to delete specific messages/ messages for each other in the group has an update, according to a report. This feature will increase power in addition to restricting members from sending messages to groups, and hindering members from making any information modifications to administrators, which in turn would be beneficial. It has been spotted on WhatsApp beta for iOS and Desktop.
A pop-up message will be displayed for groups as per the information provided by WABetainfo, a WhatsApp platform. The group admin will soon be able to delete messages for everyone in groups. As per the WhatsApp beta for Android 2.22.1, the feature is in development, but there is an update. When admins delete a message for everyone in the group, they will be shown a pop-up message in the chat. Everyone will be able to see that the admin has deleted the message.
In simpler terms, this is similar to the current delete for everyone'''' feature introduced back in 2017. People are only permitted to delete their own messages from personal or group chats. However, if you are an admin of a group, everyone will be shown, via a placeholder, that a message was deleted.
This feature, which is anticipated to be introduced to WhatsApp beta for Android, iOS, and Desktop in the future, is still under development. It was introduced in an update last December.
WhatsApp is one of the many platforms under fire for facilitating the circulation of fake information. Unlike WhatsApp, the company has stated that they have taken steps to prevent the spread of misinformation on the platform. However, there is no clear cure to identify the fake news.
The ability to delete group members'' messages, along with the ability to prohibit members from sending messages to their groups, and to prevent them from making any unneeded group information changes, will allow administrators to limit spam and misinformation on WhatsApp in an more effective way.
