Whatsapp rolls out another feature to empower group admins; will forbid members from sending anything on the group


Whatsapp is continuously making its users restricted with their rights of operating on a group, whether it is spreading a rumour or simply posting on the group. The new feature of Whatsapp gives more power to group admins who can now forbid other members to post on the group.

This is another advantage to the group admins over other group members. The new feature enables the admin to stop other members from doing anything – texting, sending images, videos, GIFs, and audios, etc.

Needless to say, the members of the group will be able to see all the messages, even though they have been forbidden from posting on the group. Another option with the group member who has been forbidden is to send a private message to others.

Another news which may be important for you to know is that now even Jio phone has Whatsapp. Earlier, Whatsapp was planned to debut on Jio with a KaiOS-based device. Whatsapp will be rolled out on Jio from September 20, 2018.

If you are a Jio user, you can download Whatsapp by hopping onto the Jio store in your device. Reliance has been giving many treats to its users; first it was Youtube, now it is Whatsapp.

Akash Ambani, Director, Reliance Jio Infocomm said: “We will be providing WhatsApp, the most used chat application in the world, on all Jio Phones starting today.” “Jio wants to thank the Facebook and WhatsApp team for making this happen.”

Chris Daniels, Vice President, WhatsApp, announced the news like -“By designing this new app for KaiOS, we hope to expand the ability for people to communicate with anyone in India and around the world by offering the best messaging experience possible to Jio Phone users.” The app was due since August 15 and now it comes with end-to-end encryption.
