It appears that the feature of “Instagram Stories” is not the only new feature arriving to WhatsApp. The instant messaging application is also trialing one more function that will be much valued by those frustrated by group conversations on the app. Dubbed as “Dismiss As Admin,” the new forthcoming function will permit one admin of the group to dismiss another, without eliminating her/him from the group. Prior to this function, it was essential to eliminate the user from the group and include them again, so as to withdraw its features as group admin.
The powers enjoyed by admins of the group, is that only they are permitted to add members to a current conversation. In the same manner, only an admin of the group can eliminate users from group conversations. This function is already being trialed for Beta edition 2.18.12 for users of Android and as per to WaBetaInfo (@wabetainfo), a Twitter account that traces alterations in beta builds of WhatsApp, it is also being trailed for iOS consumers.
One more group aimed at feature presently in trialing stage that came into notice was personal replies inside a group conversation. On the other hand, the group conversation also encountered some negative advertising when it was posted this week that Group chats of WhatsApp were at jeopardy of being penetrated by anybody who manages the servers of the app, in spite of being encrypted.
As per the scientists in Germany from Ruhr University Bochum, once a hacker with control of the server of WhatsApp had authorization to the chats, she or he might also employ the server to particularly block any text in the group. Facebook-controlled WhatsApp included end-to-end encryption to each chat 2 Years back. A spokesperson of WhatsApp verified the findings to the media. “We have looked at this problem cautiously,” added the spokesperson.
