WhatsApp rolls out Dismiss as Admin and High Priority notifications features

This feature is being made available to iOS users on WhatsApp version 2.18.41 and Web apps.

WhatsApp has updated the beta version with a feature that will keep track of high priority notification so that you don't miss any important message on the chat app.

The new feature on the app brings "High priority notifications" to the app. However, the "Dismiss as Admins" feature is not yet live on the stable version of the Android app.

WhatsApp recently has been on a spree to develop features for its Groups.

This new feature present in Group Info allows all members to demote an admin and not remove them from the group. Facebook-owned WhatsApp keeps testing new features in its beta app version. Admins, on the other hand, do not get to benefit from the feature despite visibility. Now, admins will no longer need to remove the other admin and can demote him directly. Now the WhatsApp has started rolling out all these features.

Earlier, Whatsapp group administrators had to remove the other admin from the group and add him again to remove him as the administrator. It is to be noted that the request for money will be valid only for 24 hours.

When the Payments feature on WhatsApp was launched, it faced the criticism at that time because it was not supporting all the features of UPI. The feature basically shows you an alert if a new or unknown contact messages you that if you'd want to save or discard his number in case you have already received the contact card of this unknown sender from someone else.

To demote a group admin to a normal member, all you have to do now is head over to the Group Info section, tap on the group admin's name, and then tap on "Dismiss as admin". This feature will enable a user to redownload a particular file (image, video, GIF, etc) if he has accidentally deleted it from the Whatsapp folder on the internal storage of the phone.
