The launch of new features came days after the company told the New York Times it planned to give group administrators more control.
"Today, we're launching a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to a group".
WhatsApp is now rolling out a new feature to their messaging app which should make it easier for organizations or groups to send out announcements to members of the group. Facebook is assuring users that the feature is now rolling out all around the world so it could just take a bit of time to become available.

Last month, WhatsApp launched a series of new features, including group descriptions that can be set by admins only and which detail the goal, guidelines, or topics of discussion for a group, and a new policy that group creators can no longer be kicked out of a group they started. "One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centres, and non-profit organisations", the Facebook-owned company wrote in a blog post late on Friday. All other participants will not be able to send text messages, images, videos, and voice messages in the group if the "Only Admins" option is selected for the Send Messages feature.

Once the feature is enabled, users will also be able to configure it using WhatsApp Web. The feature will be remotely activated for users of the latest version of WhatsApp stable for Android soon.
