At the same time, the developers have improved the local analogue of stories. .jpg” alt=”Whatsapp group chat admins will be able to delete messages from any member” />
In the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, they discovered another feature that is being tested before the release to a wide audience. It will allow chat administrators to delete messages of any users. This will allow for more thorough moderation of groups, which currently can have up to 256 members.
If a regular user can only delete someone's message from himself, then the administrator will have “Delete for everyone” in the list of available actions. Previously, this option was only available for own messages.
At the same time, in the beta application for Android, viewing statuses directly from the list of dialogs is being tested. Whatsapp status is similar to stories on Instagram* and VKontakte: videos or photos that are available only 24 hours from the moment of publication. Beta users may see a green circle around the profiles of people who have recently updated their status: you no longer need to open the dialog for this.
As usual It happens with features in development, even the approximate release dates for these two innovations for stable WhatsApp are not yet available.
