Facebook gives more power to group chat admins in latest Messenger update
And so, Facebook has just announced an important update is now being rolled out to Messenger, which is supposed to make the app “better than ever.” The update adds more privileges for admins that allows them to approve new members before they join their group chat.
In addition, admins will have the ability to remove members whenever they think it's necessary, as well as promote or demote other persons in the group chat as an admin.
If you're an admin in a group chat, you'll be able to set Messenger to notify you when a new member wants to join the group chat, but you can also turn this option off and allow any person who wants to join it to do so without your approval.
As per Facebook's announcement, the new features will be rolled out to Messenger for mobile starting today, so make sure to check for the update in the App Store and Google Play Store.
