How To Ban Members To Send Messages on WhatsApp Group

Restrict/Ban Members to Send/Post Messages On WhatsApp Group:- Facebook Owned WhatsApp has now finally launched one of the best features to ban group members from posting messages on WhatsApp Group. WhatsApp has provided the unique "Super Power" to the Group'Admins to restrict group members from posting irreverent messages, photos, links, videos etc.

Now group members won't be able to send such messages without taking the permission of group admins. If you were also the group admins of some "WhatsApp Group" and had been tired of warning to your group members against posting Gifs, Messages, Links, Voice messages etc without permission. Now you can restrict WhatsApp group chat to post admin-only. And you can prevent your group from posting unwanted messages by your group members.

Being a group admin of a WhatsApp group. I had been tired of always reminding to the members that they are not allowed to send or post any links, messages, videos on that particular group which is nowhere related to the motive of the group which we have created for. But still, there are few members who are the culprits to spam the group for no reason. To ban such members from posting in the group.

You can use this feature name "Send Messages" which you can find in your Group Settings and then "Choose who can send messages to this group" and choose "Only Admins". By selecting this option only group admins will be able to post messages on WhatsApp Group.

In this post itself I have mentioned it not to use this APK for your Personal Chat. You can only take the help of activating this "Only admins can send messages" feature before rolling out officially !
