After WhatsApp pushed out an update focusing on group admins
to Android users early this month, the developer has decided to bring more options to iOS fans as well. So, WhatsApp for iOS
is getting another update that adds a couple of new features and improvements aimed at group admins.
The first thing mentioned in the changelog is the new option now available to group admins that enables them to choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. Group admins can find the new option in the Group Info under Group Settings. Keep mind that non-admins will still be able to read messages and respond privately by simply tapping “Message Admin.”
One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centers, and non-profit organizations. We've introduced this new setting so admins can have better tools for these use cases.
Another improvement included in the update will allow group admin to easily notify people when they change their phone number. The new option has been added in the Settings menu under Account / Change number. Obviously, you'll be able to select which of your contacts to learn about your new phone number, and the same goes for chats.
