WhatsApp, a messaging platform owned by Meta, is introducing a feature in its Android beta version that allows administrators to review group chats.
According to WABetaInfo, group admins will soon have a new option in the group settings screen.
If you turn on this setting, everyone in the group chat can tell the group admins about messages shared in the conversation.
After a message is reported, the person in charge of the group can either delete the message for everyone or do something about it depending on how important the reported content is.
The report said that this feature allows the group to keep the conversation safe and respectful.
With the new feature, the people in charge of a group can get help in watching over the group even if they are not present.
The messages that need to be checked will be shown in a new part of the group information screen.
The new admin review feature for group chats is now being tested by some people who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update. It will soon be available to more users in the next few days.
Last month, the messaging platform introduced new safety tools for users who receive messages from phone numbers they don’t know on Android beta.
The platform now has a new feature on Android beta called ‘link with phone number’. It lets users connect their account to WhatsApp Web using their phone number.
In June, the Meta-owned platform introduced a new feature that lets people on Android beta send really good videos.
Even though this feature keeps the size of the video the same, the video quality will still be slightly reduced due to compression.
As a result, it is not possible to send videos without any loss in their original quality.
