WhatsApp is giving more control to admins on their groups. The instant messaging platform on Friday announced a new group setting where only admins can send messages to the members of a group.

"One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centres and non-profit organisations. We've introduced this setting so admins can have better tools for these cases," WhatsApp said on its website.
