Block Members Sending Messages: WhatsApp is the currently trending messaging service which is widespread all over the world. The messaging platform has recently revealed its latest update which will allow the group administrators blocking the members of the group to send messages. After you block the users, the admin will not receive their sent text, audio, video, gifs, voice messages, documents or any of the message. Whatsapp has updated this feature in order to upgrade the authority of the admins and also to prevent some annoying group members who sent immoral and un-acceptable messages in the group.
After a message is sent by a blocked group member, it is then confirmed by the group admin before being posted on the wall of that WhatsApp group. The update will also restrict actions as the admins can also block other members from sending messages so that they can only send messages to the group. The group admin can add about 256 participants in their respective group. It is not necessary that a group is opened for chatting in groups, it can be also used for other purposes like getting reports via school group, political group, or professional group.
