Administrator Deleted Messages

Messaging applications have gradually changed their functions to become a compendium of communication tools. WhatsApp has not been as innovative as Telegram, but it has not needed it either: having the support of its user community is more than enough. And it’s just moving into that, a community.

The communities are official even though they are not yet present in the mobile apps (nor the web or desktop). Since these talkgroups need moderators to maintain the appropriateness of all messagesWhatsApp is giving this role to group administrators. This has been verified by WaBetaInfo.

Admins will be able to delete messages for all users, something that until now was not possible (they can only be deleted for those who read the conversation, not from the chat). Of course, the deletion will not be invisible: there will be a notice of message deleted by the administrator. Those messages will still be available to those who use applications to recover deleted messages.

The novelty is working for some group administrators who have WhatsApp Beta installed on Android. Little by little it will be expanded to more users of said beta, also on the iPhone. Y it will land on stable WhatsApp when its operation is completely verified. Perhaps it will come with the future landing in the communities application.
