Whatsapp to make group admins more powerful with this feature

It seems like the "Instagram Stories feature" is not the only new thing coming to WhatsApp.

Facebook-owned messenger application, WhatsApp is testing a new feature in the group chat, which will allow an administrator to demote another person from the post of admin in the chat.

This feature is already being tested for Beta version 2.18.12 for Android users and according to WaBetaInfo (@wabetainfo), a Twitter account that tracks changes in WhatsApp's beta builds, it is also being tested for iOS users.

As per the current functioning of the app, only group admins are allowed to add participants to an existing chat or remove them from the group.

The makers have developed this "Dismiss As Admin" feature for demoting the group admins, reports The Independent.

If you're an admin of a group chat, you'll be able to access the feature simply by tapping Group Info.

Another group centric feature now in testing phase that came to light was private replies within a group chat.

If you're the group admin, you - and only you, if you're the only admin - will be allowed to send any messages. We all have that one annoying uncle who runs the family group and of course our irritating and well meaning friend who happens to be the group admin. Fret no more as people at WhatsApp heard our silent troubles.
