WhatsApp starts rolling out 'Dismiss As Admin' feature to Android users

Under this new feature, WhatsApp will be given the option of "Dismiss as Admin". At the same time, if any member of the "Group Admin" creates an administrator and removes him/her from the post of administrator some time later, then the person gets out of the group, but this will not happen in the new feature.

The popular messaging app lets users supports both voice and video calls, and it has been rumoured for months that WhatsApp is testing a new feature that will allow users to switch between voice calls and video calls.

The privileges enjoyed by group admins, is that only they are allowed to add participants to an existing 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.

However, the group chat also faced some negative publicity when it was reported this week that WhatsApp's Group chats were at a risk of being infiltrated by "anyone who controls the app's servers", despite being encrypted. WhatsApp calls are now only available for one-on-one conversations but it might be available to group chats in the near future.

Another group centric feature now in testing phase that came to light was private replies within a group chat. Facebook-owned WhatsApp added end-to-end encryption to every conversation two years ago.

The message will need to be approved by the administrator before going through to the rest of the group. "We've looked at this issue carefully", the spokesperson added.
