Facebook has announced new admin privileges for group chats in Facebook Messenger. When the other person clicks on that link, they're taken straight to the group - assuming they have Facebook Messenger installed on their device. "Since 2.5 million new groups were created on Messenger every day past year, we're excited to start rolling out new, widely requested Messenger features that make your group chat experience more robust and seamless", Drew Moxon, Product Manager, Messenger, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday. This will now allow the group admins to promote a group member as an admin, or, demote an existing admin to a normal group member.

Moreover, admins can now also decide whether new members to a group are added automatically or only after he approves the inclusion of those persons in the group.

With admin privileges, you now have the power to approve new members before they join your group chat. Members of a group chat can create a link that can be shared and allow people to join the conversation.

Drew Moxon, the Messenger Product Manager added that it is optional for Messenger groups and they may not opt for it if they do not need that level of control for managing that group.

Mumbai Mirror reports: "The date and venue for the wedding have been locked and mass bookings for flights are presently underway". Sonam and Anand made their relationship official on the 60th birthday celebration of Anil Kapoor in London in December 2016.

Apart from this, Facebook has also introduced joinable links for group chats in Messenger.

It's worth noting here that the admin approval feature is off by default, meaning you'll have to flip the little switch within the member requests section to activate it. This is exactly what it sounds like. Anyone in the chat can create a custom link and share it with whoever they want to join the conversation.

Group Chats can get quite unruly though, with support for up to 250 people in a group at a time - so giving administrators control is a great idea, and the new controls are quite intuitive.
