Multiple Admins, WhatsApp Group, WP, Timus Rak

The new Group Chat feature in WhatsApp lets you chat with up to 100 people at once. Previously it was only 50. It is a great way stay in touch with your family, friends and colleagues. Specially for people with larger number of peers, like students in a class or in a big office, it is now easy to add all the people as members of the group. In addition to the change in number of people you can add to a group, there are a few more changes :

  • Every group has one or more admins. Only admins can add or remove participants. Previously you had only one admin for a group. 

  • Now you can see the Received and Read receipt for all the members of the group, even if they have set privacy option.

Other things you must know about Group Chats are:

  • There is no limit to the number of groups you can create.

  • Only admins can make other participants admins.

  • If the last admin leaves the group, a new admin will be randomly assigned.

  • You can always control your own participation in a Group Chat, by staying in or leaving the group when you wish. Remember that only group admins have the ability to add participants. If you have any questions about being added to a group, or prefer not to be added, please speak to a group admin.

  • If you have blocked a contact, you will still receive messages this contact sends into any group you have in common. Likewise, they will still receive messages you send to those groups.
