WhatsApp just rolled out a giant internet megaphone

WhatsApp launched a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to a group.

New Group Setting for Admins

Over the last few months, we’ve added new features that improve the groups experience. Some of these include group descriptions, a catch-up feature, and protection for people who are being added repeatedly to groups they’ve left.

Today, we’re launching a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to a group. One way, people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centres, and non-profit organizations. We’ve introduced this new setting, so admins can have better tools for these use cases.

To enable this setting, open “Group Info,” tap Group Settings > Send Messages and select “Only Admins.” This setting is rolling out to all users around the world on the latest supported versions of the app.
