Whatsapp is rolling out a new optional feature that allows only administrators to send messages to the group, the company announced. Open "Group Info" tap "Group Settings". "We've introduced this new setting so admins can have better tools for these use cases", WhatsApp explains. One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centers, and non-profit organizations.
Admins can go to "Group Settings" and toggle the "Send Messages" option to choose if all participants can send messages in the group or only admin (s).

After WhatsApp pushed out an update focusing on group admins to Android users early this month, the developer has made a decision to bring more options to iOS fans as well.
The "Send Messages" feature in groups lets group administrators disable chat features in a group. Additionally, if the latter option is chosen, an "Only admins can send messages" prompt will replace the message field.
