WhatsApp working to empower administrators to approve people in group chat. The app is developing a user interface that will allow group administrators to screen potential group chat participants.

In addition to working to let administrators control who can join a group chat, WhatsApp has tested a feature that allows administrators to delete other users’ messages. A new screenshot gives us a sneak peek at the latest feature, which is currently in development.

Although this permission page is not currently user-facing in the latest WhatsApp 2.22.18.9 beta, WABetaInfo was able to activate it and capture the image you see below. When this group setting is active, admins will have the authority to choose who can join. We may be able to see the list of pending requests below this switch, according to WABI.

In large organizations, the admin approval tool seems like a fantastic approach to protecting user privacy and combating spam. We can also imagine him helping in the prevention of possible bullying of group members. One benefit of the tool is that admins can check with current group members to confirm the veracity of a chat request, should they have any questions. We anticipate its eventual release as, all things considered, it seems to be a major step forward for the messaging app.
