WhatsApp offers a feature that allows you to create groups dedicated to the broadcast in which only the administrator has the right to publish.

To spread information, we immediately think of social networks (or lists of e-mails). But messaging apps are also turning into new channels.

For example, on Facebook Messenger, it is already possible to create kinds of newsletters via the bot platform of the messaging app. Telegram also has the channels to broadcast news.

And now, WhatsApp has a group type in which only the administrator can send messages. The other members only receive the information.

Broadcast groups
"Today we are launching a new group setting where only administrators can send messages to a group. One of the ways people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers in schools, community centers, and non-profit organizations. We've introduced this new setting to that administrators can have better tools for these use cases, "writes WhatsApp in a press release.

To turn a WhatsApp group into a group where only the administrator can post a message, the user just has to change an option in the group settings.

However, as suggested in the press release, WhatsApp has not (yet) planned this feature for mass mailing. As a reminder, WhatsApp groups are limited to 256 members.

But given the popularity of this application in some countries, such as India where it has hundreds of millions of users, it is certain that the media is already exploring ways to use WhatsApp as a distribution channel for their content.
