Everyone in the group will be able to see that the admin has deleted the message. You yourself will be able to see the “You deleted this message as admin” note after you delete message(s) in the group as an admin.

“As an admin, you are deleting (group’s) message for everyone in this chat. They will see that you deleted the message.”

This feature could be useful at times to control the activity in a group. With this feature, admins could also be held responsible in case of some serious issues. As admins will be having more power over the content that’s being shared in the Whatsapp group.

Whatsapp is yet to confirm this feature, but WABetainfo reveals that you might already have this feature if you are a beta tester.

To check if you have received this feature or not, simply try deleting any incoming messages as an admin. If you are able to delete incoming messages, great.

If you are unable to delete incoming messages, do not worry as it may be rolled out to you soon. Whatsapp is experimenting with this feature with limited users, so if you get it, consider yourself lucky.

Other than this, Whatsapp is reportedly working on a feature called “Kept messages.” This feature will allow you to keep the disappearing message by converting it to a standard message.
