WhatsApp: How to allow only administrators to send messages in groups

WhatsApp now allows you to restrict sending messages in groups. The feature gives full control to administrators, allowing them to only send messages. In practice, the function causes the group to turn a transmission channel similar to what exists in the Telegram. However, unlike the competitor, the number of participants remains limited to 256 people. The function is useful for groups whose sole purpose is the disclosure of information without conversations.

Check out, in the following tutorial, how to restrict sending messages to WhatsApp groups. You need to have the latest version of the messenger installed on your phone - learn how to update your apps. The feature is only available for iPhone (iOS) and Android users.
