WhatsApp Upcoming Updates: Admin Super Powers

We’ve seen lots of
updates from WhatsApp most especially the recall feature recently rolled out to
everyone and the bug noticed  on how you can
read deleted messages from the recipient backend. Though we are still expecting
WhatsApp to fix the bug.

Now, this is what we
are expected to see in the near future, no specific time frame on when it will
be rolled out but maybe 2018.
Admin Super Powers: WhatsApp
will prevent the group creator from being deleted from the group by other
administrators. This will help the group creator to have the full control of
the group.
Subject Modification: The
administrators will be able to choose if other participants can modify the
subject of the group, its icon and its description, as shown below in this

When an administrator
decides that participants cannot change the subject of the group, its icon and
its description, a notification will appear in the group telling you that only
admins can change the group info.

Restriction in Groups:
Administrators will be able to disable the chat features in the group: that
means all participants won’t be able to send in the group text messages,
images, videos, GIFs, documents, voice messages or starting a new live location
session.. They will be able to do nothing in the group, and a notification in
the chat will appear that “only admin can send messages to this group”

Admins will have power
to disable the chat features… only admins will be able to interact within the
group while other participants can only read messages but won’t be able to
reply. This is necessary if admin want to pass an info or a training is going
on in the group.
the changes can only be altered after 72hours

The settings of this
feature can only be altered after 72hours.
