One of the pains of joining a Whatsapp group or being added to a Whatsapp group is the fact that lots and lots of messages are posted on the group, and even sometimes, these message crowd out the main and important messages. This often frustrates group admins who try effortlessly to maintain sanity on the group. These group admin often beg, plead, instruct or even threaten group members with eviction just to keep everything civil.
This is one of the reasons people are beginning to abandon Whatsapp and move to other messaging platforms like Telegram which has more group participant restrictions.
Just recently, Whatsapp rolled out an update to correct that flaw. This update is sure to bring a smile to the faces of group admins who have been frustrated by erring members. This update helps the admin restrict anyone from posting on the group for as long as he wants. The good thing is that it can be undone at any time.
How Do You Activate It?
Firstly, you would need to update your Whatsapp to the latest version.
Then you go to Group info and click on group settings.
You would see Send Messages. Click on it and select only admins then ok. And that is it! No one can post on the group again.
To deactivate it, just follow the same process and click on All participants.
This is good news for group admins and I am happy for them.
