WhatsApp’s latest beta update for Android will allow group admins to delete messages for everyone. With this feature, admins will be able to “clean up” group chats. While this function had been previously spotted last year, it is finally rolling out to select beta testers. Additionally, WhatsApp is testing a chatbot that will offer in-app announcements for new features.

WhatsApp Chatbot For In-App Announcements
As spotted by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is developing a chatbot that will deliver in-app notifications about new features coming to the applications. These announcements will also offer you tips and tricks for WhatsApp, as well as updated policies concerning privacy and security.
The report adds that you will not be able to reply to the chat as it is read-only. Furthermore, it is end-to-end encrypted, ensuring that they will not be intercepted by third parties. You will also get the option to block the chat if you do not wish to get messages from WhatsApp.
