Whatsapp How to set Group Admin?

In order to choose or set a new Group Admin.

2.Now go to Group settings.

3.Next Edit Group Admins and choose from those in the group to make a admin. Click done when finished and do note you can have more than one person as a admin.

Control who can Send Messages and Edit Group Info

This one is key as you can control who can post and also who can edit Group info. For example by limiting who can edit to admins you can prevent Kids for example in a Group for school from changing the name of the group or Image of the group and more.

1.Open the group and click on the picture or Group name in the bar at the top of the screen.

2.Now go to group settings.

3.Now from here to prevent anyone or kids from Editing Group info click that and change to Only Admin. This way only the admin can modify the group name, picture and so on. Always a good idea to do this with a group.

Next go ahead and under: Send Messages you can leave as is to allow everyone to participate. However if you have a special setup where only the Admins are allowed to post and everyone else simply views then change this option to Only Admins.

4. Use the Edit Group Admins to assign new admins just below based on what level of control you want to grant to what users.
