Meta-owned WhatsApp is working on a feature to allow group admins to delete messages for everyone. According to the details, the new feature will allow group admins to better moderate groups and delete messages that go against any policies or simply do not contribute to the group’s purpose.
The feature is has been available to some beta users for almost a year now and it is soon expected that WhatsApp may soon release it on the stable version, which is going to allow group admins to delete messages for everyone. However, you can also check if the feature is already available to you.
“If you are a group admin and you try to delete an incoming message and you see the option “delete for everyone”, it means the feature is available.” said WABetaInfo on its website. “When you delete a message for everyone, sent by another group participant, other people can always see that you’ve deleted that message since your name shows up within the chat bubble,” it added.
However, it may take some time for the feature to be released to everyone as it is only in the beta version for the messenger.
