WhatsApp, the popular messaging app owned by Facebook, is constantly innovating and bringing new features to its platform. The latest update, version 188.8.131.52, is currently rolling out through the Google Play Beta Program, and it comes with an exciting addition: the “Send for Admin Review” feature for group chats. This new tool empowers group admins to better manage their groups and maintain a safe and respectful environment for all members.
The Introduction of “Send for Admin Review”
In a previous article about WhatsApp beta for the Android 184.108.40.206 update, we teased the development of a new feature called “Send for Admin Review.” With the release of the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, this feature is now available to a select group of beta testers. The “Send for Admin Review” feature is designed to help group admins handle situations when they are not available to monitor group conversations actively.

How the Feature Works
With the “Send for Admin Review” feature enabled, all members of a group chat gain the ability to report messages shared in the conversation directly to the group admins. This reporting mechanism allows users to highlight problematic or inappropriate content for the administrators’ attention. Upon receiving a reported message, the group admin can take appropriate action, such as deleting the message for everyone or dealing with the sender as necessary.
Empowering Group Administrators
The introduction of the “Send for Admin Review” feature provides group administrators with valuable support in managing their groups. Group admins can now have greater control over the conversations even when they are not actively monitoring the chat. This ability to review messages sent by other group members enhances the group’s ability to maintain a safe and respectful environment for everyone involved.
Easy Reporting Process
To make the reporting process user-friendly, WhatsApp has included a straightforward method for members to send messages for review. Within the group settings screen, users can find a new option to enable the feature. When a user encounters a message they believe requires admin attention, they can simply open the message options and select the “Send for Admin Review” option.
Gradual Rollout to Beta Testers
The “Send for Admin Review” feature is currently available to some lucky beta testers who have installed the WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168 update from the Google Play Store. However, not all beta testers will have access to the feature immediately. WhatsApp is rolling out the update gradually, meaning more users will gain access to the feature over the coming weeks.
WhatsApp’s new “Send for Admin Review” feature is a valuable addition that empowers group admins to manage their chats more effectively. With the ability to review reported messages and take appropriate action, group administrators can ensure a safe and respectful environment within their conversations. The rollout of this feature to beta testers showcases WhatsApp’s commitment to continuous improvement and enhancing the user experience.
