Group admin can delete the messages for everyone: Whatsapp

by August 4, 2022 0 comments

Meta-owned messaging app WhatsApp has decided to release a feature that will allow group admins to delete the messages for everyone in the group in order to take action on offensive content.

According to WABetaInfo, the platform is rolling out a new update through the Google Play Beta Program, bringing the version up to 2.22.17.12 and that will let group admins delete any message for everyone.

It means the feature is available once you see the option ” delete for everyone” while trying to delete an incoming message as admin, as per reports.

Also while deleting the message for everyone in a group sent by another group participant, other people can always see that you have deleted that message since your name shows up within the chat bubble.

Moreover, the platform has recently banned more than 22 lakh bad accounts in India in the month of June in compliance with the new IT Rules, 2021. It banned over 19 lakh bad accounts in the country in May.

The messaging platform also received 632 grievance reports in June within the country, and the accounts ‘actioned’ were seen 64 times.
