San Francisco: With the aim of taking abusive messages, the messaging platform WhatsApp, owned by Meta, will soon release a new feature that will allow group admins to delete messages for everyone.
According to WABetaInfo, the platform is rolling out another update through the Google Play Beta program bringing the version to 126.96.36.199 and allowing group admins to delete any post for everyone.
The report mentioned that if you are a group admin and you try to delete an incoming message and you see the “delete for everyone” option, it means the feature is available.
When you delete a message for everyone sent by another group member, other people can always see that you deleted that message as your name appears in the chat bubble.
Recently, the platform banned more than 22 lakh bad accounts in India in the month of June in accordance with the new IT rules, 2021. It banned more than 19 lakh bad accounts in the country in May.
The messaging platform also received 632 complaint reports in the country in June, and the accounts acted on were 64.
