WhatsApp has released a new feature that allows group admins to force every group member to stop chatting.
A user shall be the only group admin to be allowed to send messages and restrict other members to reply; allowing them to only view the message sent by the group admin.
The Restricted Groups setting is a feature available only for group admins. Switching it on disables all chat functionalities for non-admins from sending text messages, images and videos to recording voice messages and sharing documents or locations.
Admins, meanwhile, will be able to continue chatting as normal. Everyone else will simply have to read their messages in silence.
Non-admins who to request a word in the conversation can click on the “Message Admin” button that enables him to do so. However, the admin’s approval to the request is a must in order for the message to go through to the rest of the group.
Admins will only be able to change the setting every 72 hours, which means group members will be silenced for days at a time.
It is important to mention that this feature is still being tested by Whatsapp and will soon be available for all users. You can test it out now by signing up to the beta version of WhatsApp.

A year ago, there have been rumors about Whatsapp adding a recall feature for app users.
Rumor has it, this feature is only available for a limited number of users and hopefully will be accessible for all of the app users very soon.
What does the “Recall” feature do?
Some of us have sent spontaneous messages to someone and have regretted it afterwards. Others have been in awkward situations by sending messages to the wrong contacts.
After this feature being requested from millions of users, these uncomfortable situations can now be avoided!
The new delete/recall feature allows users to delete messages sent before the receiver checks them. Though, it only works if both sender and receiver have the latest version of Whatsapp installed on their mobile device or the web version of it.
This option has been accessible for online a limited number of users of Android, iPhone and Windows users.
How to use it?
Reports said that this option will probably be called “Delete for Everyone” and will be easy to use: A trash icon will be showcased so that users can choose which message to recall.
The trash option will work for all texts, images, videos, GIFs, voice messages, quoted messages, contacts, files, locations and status replies on WhatsApp.
To enable the trash icon, a user shall enter a chat, tap and hold on a specific message, click on the trash bin icon and select “Delete for Everyone” option.
However, as mentioned above, this feature is only available if both parties, sender and receiver, use the latest Whatsapp version. Another catch would be that it also only works within 7 minutes of sending the message. After that timeframe, messages or documents sent cannot be recalled.
Deleted messages will be replaced by the following sentence: "This message was deleted for everyone." and will deleted from the chat page as well as from the notifications pane.
This option will be limited to messages sent to individual chats and is not functional for messages sent to all users in a broadcast list.

Rumor has it that robots will soon replace our smartphones!
It is well known that the virtual world has proven itself to have no boundaries. A decade ago, people have shown incredible addiction to the new technologies; mainly, smartphones. People all over the world are almost fully dependent on mobile devices in order to accomplish daily routines.
But, what if something even bigger and wider is about to be launched? You think it is impossible, yet, tech insiders have revealed the news: Robots will soon replace our smartphones!
The robots are said to be unbelievably realistic and very efficient for users: the life-like droids will be daily companions for basic help such as making coffee and even buying personal stuff. Also, these robots will be its user’s personal assistant and adviser on various matters.
This exclusive news was announced last week at the G-Summit conference organized by GWC. The summit gathered people from all around the world in California in order to discuss robotics, new techs and artificial intelligence.
Today, the robotic specimens still have limitations, but scientists are optimistic and cannot wait to improve their creations.
Facebook is Hitting Again!
There is no doubt that Facebook, which has started as internal exchange tool, has now become one of the main online platforms that allows billions of users, individuals and corporates, to stay connected, sell products/services and exchange ideas.
What you probably did not expect, is for Facebook to bet on the Virtual Reality as its next BIG THING!
We’ve already acknowledged the fact that Facebook always has new visions, features and perspective; for instance, adding the 360-degree photo option.
Today, Facebook has not only decided to integrate Virtual Reality, but is also trying to push a new wave of Virtual Reality Movies, TV Shows and Videos, as a way to stimulate the whole world to get on board!
Accordingly, Facebook is trying to usher in a new era in movies, TV and any other video by using Virtual Reality to make them more social. It has unleashed its idea of the NEXT BIG STEP during the recent Facebook F8 Conference 2017. Furthermore, the Virtual Reality tool has been showcased as a demo to all the attendees across a variety of countries.
Purposes of the VR
The purpose of this tool has many purposes; you can pretty much do whatever you want with the Surround 360 camera design! From building your own, making smaller/cheaper versions or bigger/premium versions, etc. It is designed to be easy to assemble from readily-available parts and hackable.
The videos made with these cameras, so long as they stick to the standard set here by Facebook, will be ideal for the social network's own Oculus Rift VR headset, pushing the whole market forward. And the test videos released will definitely leave visually-minded people wanting to explore the possibilities. "We wanted high-quality results to inspire people," Cabral says.
The Master Plan
Cabral says that the best way to think about where Facebook is going with virtual reality is to think about Facebook itself. When you think about Facebook, it is not a simple photo sharing service nor it is a way to post videos and links. It's much bigger than any of these aspects.
"Is it text? Is it video? It's all of those things," Cabral says.
Similarly, Facebook is looking to mash movies, TV, Virtual Reality, and video games together into a brand-new format unique to virtual reality.
The Interesting Part
This is where things get interesting. Cabral says that from Facebook's and Oculus' point of view, there's no difference between the video game stuff and the real-life stuff when it comes to virtual reality. He describes them as "orthogonal." Instead, Cabral describes virtual reality as a "continuum."
He envisions a world where you're (maybe, hypothetically) WATCHING A LIVE NBA GAME with a friend, in virtual reality. You would literally "see" them sitting next to you, and also, there are computer graphics projected over the court, providing statistics, instant replays, and memes from the internet, all while simulating the feeling of sitting courtside with a buddy.
So, much like how Facebook combines photos, and text, and comments, and GIFs, and all of that into one big social experience, Cabral sees virtual reality doing the same thing in a much more immersive way. In the past, Facebook has likened virtual reality to "teleportation."
But before any of that can happen, people need to actually be able to film in virtual reality. The plan is that with the Surround 360 providing such an easy way to shoot high-quality virtual reality video, it'll be easy for filmmakers both amateur and professional to get started. With the film community making their own twists on the camera, too, it'll be accessible to everyone for very specific needs.
Once the power to make virtual reality movies is totally commoditized, Cabral explains, then the curve of when all of this takes off can really accelerate. He says Facebook has talked to major "commercial artists," and that it's "not a whether" this happens, just a matter of when.
"It's happening," Cabral says.
