Group #Admin Can Only Send Messages #Whatsapp New feature

Recently, WhatsApp added a new group settingwhere only admins are able to send messages to a group. This is a way for people to use Groups in order to simply receive “important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centers, and non-profit organizations.” By adding this setting, it may encourage many more brands, teachers, restaurants and political organizations to create WhatsApp Groups as a way to provide one-way updates and news rather than signing up for SMS alerts.

You can enable this feature by opening Group Info by tapping on the name of the group at the top of the conversation. Then tap Group Settings > Send Messages > select Only Admins. This setting is now being rolled out to all users around the world on the latest supported versions of WhatsApp.
