Converts all of the participants in administrators
The idea of the trick is that all participants in the group are also administrators. For this we go to the “group Information” and in group Setting > Edit admins. group we selected all the participants.
only administrators can send messages
Now in group Settings > Send messages select administrators Only to be able to send messages to the group.
as all the users administrators all participants will be able to send messages, in addition to invite new participants.
Mutes a participant descartándolo as an administrator
to silence a person or certain people in the group what we need to do is to discard them as administrator from the “group Information”. You go to the list of participants and with a long keypress you access to the option “Discard as administrator”.
that way you can have a person or few people silenced using the latest novelty from WhatsApp. When they are not administrators will no longer be able to write anything but if you read what the other participants are typing.
