To provide features like Telegram's channels, WhatsApp is rolling out "Only Admins" feature in its group chats. The admins in group chats can now restrict the participants from sending messages in the group i.e, the new two-way communication will work like a broadcast.
WhatsApp in a blog post wrote, "Today, we're launching a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to 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."
Group admins can enable" Only Admins" feature by navigating to "Group info" and then
selecting "Only Admins".
Once enabled, participants won't be able to send text messages, GIFs, videos, voice messages or any documents.
