WhatsApp Testing "Demote Admin" Feature For Groups Chats




WhatsApp is testing a new feature on both Android and iOS that allows a group administrator to "demote" or "dismiss" another administrator, thereby depriving that user of the administrator status.

Normally, an administrator can not be deprived the admin status unless the user is removed by another admin and then re-added back to the group as an ordinary member with no special status. 



 According to WABetainfo, the feature is available in beta v2.18.12 has an option that in the Group Info section as Dismiss as admin, which allows an administrator to dismiss another one without the need to remove the user from the group.

WABetainfo explained that group creators can also be demoted or even removed from the group, but the Facebook owned company is working on how to prevent other admins from limiting group creators status.


"Using the Remove participant option, it is currently possible to remove the group creator from the group, but WhatsApp is implementing some checks that will prevent administrators to demote or remove him (or her) from it," WABetainfo said.

"At present, WhatsApp is developing this feature for iOS and it will be available soon for all users, instead for Android it is already enabled by default in the newest WhatsApp Google Play beta for Android 2.18.12!."

WhatsApp is yet to work on this feature for WhatsApp users on the Windows platform.
