WhatsApp Messenger beta for Android Community Report 📲 Huawei P8, Android 6.0

There's a new WhatsApp Messenger update with version number 2.18.205 beta. The only newly added feature, according to the official changelog on the Play Store, is:

"Group admins can now choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. Open "Group info" > tap "Group settings". Non-admins will still be able to read messages and respond privately by tapping "Message admin"."

In other words, group admins can now decide which users - admins only, or both admins and none-admins receive permission to send messages to their groups. That makes it easier for admins who use the groups for blogs or newsletters. It's a very neat and useful feature for managing groups.
