WhatsApp modifies group administrator removal; know how to do on Android

WhatsApp Beta for Android allows you to revoke the membership status of a group. The feature prevents you from having to remove a user and add it again to exclude the privilege. Revocation can be used by any administrator, as long as it is not directed to the creator of the group. The tool is also available for iPhone (iOS).

Learn how to remove an administrator without deleting the user from the WhatsApp group in the following tutorial. To use the feature on Android, you need to have the test version up to date (as of 2.18.41) and have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or later.
