In fact, we are talking about a new tool that the WhatsApp team is already working on in order to provide new resources to avoid conflicts within groups around insensitive messages.
And it is that as indicated by WABetaInfo, the instant messaging app would be seeking to enable a function so that the administrators of a group gain the ability to delete a message from their accounts both for themselves and for the rest of the participants of a group chat .
Until now, this function is non-existent and the only way to mediate is to personally ask users to avoid sharing certain content.This will give group managers a much clearer role as mediators, which would go beyond the current powers that have to do, in general, with integrating or removing members from a WhatsApp group.
What’s new on WhatsApp
When this quality is exercised, instead of the deleted message, the warning that we all now know will appear, so that the participants will know when a message was deleted by the administrator.
As indicated from the mentioned source, for now this tool is under development, so it is not possible to find it even in the beta version of WhatsApp.
Although we will have to wait to have more power as group administrators, the truth is that WhatsApp has just announced new features that are worth recognizing.
In addition to its expected reactions, this Thursday the app announced that from now on it will allow sharing files of up to 2GB in size, a limit that after being tested in Argentina, now extends worldwide.
Finally, WhatsApp is betting on creating gigantic groups. And it is that the limit of the number of participants in a group has already been increased to reach up to 512 people.
