    The “Restricted Groups” setting can only be activated by group administrators. Administrators can keep sharing media and chatting as normal as they restrict other members.

    Once restricted, other members will have to settle with only reading messages, and will not be able to respond. They will have to use the Message Admin button to post a message or share media to the group.

    The message will need to be approved by the administrator before going through to the rest of the group.

    “A group can be restricted once every 72 hours but thanks to the 2.17.430 beta, we discovered that WhatsApp will be finally able to change this value from the server,” the website said.

    The Restricted Groups feature, currently disabled by default, can be expected to be made available via a stable version release in the near future.

    In October, reports said administrators on WhatsApp groups will soon be able to choose if other participants can modify the subject of the group, its icon, and its description.

    WhatsApp has rolled out “delete messages for everyone” feature that lets users revoke messages in case they sent those to a wrong person or a group.

    With over 1.2 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp is available in more than 50 different languages around the world and in 10 Indian languages
