WhatsApp rolls out Dismiss as Admin and High Priority notifications features

WhatsApp High priority notifications

This feature is similar to the pinned chats facility that WhatsApp rolled out a year ago.

The new feature on the app brings "High priority notifications" to the app. However, the Android users are yet to receive this feature on the WhatsApp.

The 'Dismiss as Admin' feature is quite different, in that its availability is entirely different from the Android beta program.

Prior to the rollout of WhatsApp "dismiss as admin" feature, the creator/admin of a group had to remove another admin from the group for demoting the said member and re-add him. If you are an admin of a group and try to remove the creator of the group or dismiss him as an admin, you won't be able to do so (check out the image above for reference).

Whatsapp has rolled out a new feature in its latest update that will give more power to an administrator of a group. But, this time they chose to develop a new feature to improve the admin features. With this feature, one can pin high-priority notifications to the top of a smartphone's notification centre. To use the feature, go to WhatsApp Settings Payments New Payments Choose UPI ID or Scan code Request Money or Send Money.


As reported by WaBetaInfo, the feature is available for iOS users on version 2.18.41 and web apps. The particular option can be seen under the Group Info menu.

Interestingly, WhatsApp had rolled out the feature in its Android app (version 2.18.116), but it appears to have removed it in the latest Android beta app (version 2.18.17).

If you too have created a group on WhatsApp, we suggest you update your WhatsApp at the earliest, least you want yourself kicked out of the group you created.

WhatsApp, a Facebook owned free cross-platform messaging service has rolled out a new update in order to enhance the admin experience, providing them more tools to easily manage it.
