WhatsApp is rolling out 2 features that will let admins delete posts and android users create communities

WhatsApp is one of the most used messaging apps in the world with millions of users using it each day for multiple purposes. Whether it is keeping up with family or having work group chats, WhatsApp provides a platform for both.

On the app, it falls upon the group admin to control and regulate the content that is being posted over there, but sometimes people don’t follow the guidelines set by the Admins and post offensive content in the group chat. When that happens the admin must take charge either by asking the user to delete the message or remove them from the group. But even after asking nicely, the user does not comply, and here is when this feature comes into the picture. This feature gives admins the ability to delete messages sent by anyone in a group for everyone present in that particular group, so not even the sender can see what they sent.

This feature has started rolling out and has been given to some lucky Beta users. One thing that we know for sure as of now is that this feature will be available to Beta users soon and the ones that want to use it must have the WhatsApp Beta for iOS One thing that has to be noted is that this feature is only for iOS Beta users as of now. Whether this will be coming to Android in the future is still unclear.

Moving on, WhatsApp has been working on another feature that is still under development as of now. WhatsApp recently introduced Communities, a place where a person could find all the groups related to a specific topic, now it is working on an update that will allow users to create their Community.

Now, this feature has long been overdue as it should have been released with the Communities feature when it came out first. Well, the feature wasn’t non-existent, it just wasn’t available for Beta Android users. But now it is finally here.

According to the screenshot posted by WABetainfo, it is very easy to check if the feature is available on your version of WhatsApp, just look to the upper left corner where the camera tab usually is, if you see 3 small people over there then it means that your version of WhatsApp is compatible and as for the people you see, by clicking on them you will be directed to the community tab.

If the tab is available on your phone you can start by adding 10 groups into a community, they are called subgroups and one community can support up to 512 participants.
