This is a quick tutorial to explain how to report messages to WhatsApp group admin for review. To do this, a new feature called “Send for admin review” has been added to WhatsApp Group settings that you can enable. Once enabled, the members of a certain group will be able to report messages directly to the admin. This feature will help in curbing fake news and misinformation from the groups by specifically targeting those messages.
WhatsApp groups with large number of participants are often prone to loads of hoax and misinformation. And it can be daunting for group admins to keep track of those and remove them one by one. But that is not the case anymore with the new “Send for admin review” option, you can assign some members to send the hoax or bad messages for review so the admin can remove them for good. However, this feature is now available to only beta testers and will be in the stable app soon.
