There's A New Whatsapp Feature That's Causing Mayhem In Group Chats

Group chats are the haunting ground where plans are made and then never actually followed through on, where work conversation leads to inappropriate bitching and where the admin of the chat enjoys the right to kick any creepers out of the group. 

All that could change though, with a new feature that allows users to "dismiss" the administrators of group chats. 

Yep, all of the power could now be in your hands. 

The Independent reports that the app's new feature means that anyone in the group can click the lethal button that is  “Dismiss As Admin” to take away any privileges the admin might have had.

Is the admin always changing the photo of the group to something really dumb? Do they keep adding in randomers that you know from school 10 years ago?

This could cause mayhem if you kick your boss our group leader out of their admin role... 

The feature is now available in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android, and is under development on iOS (you can sign up to the beta version of WhatsApp here.)

We reckon this is gonna be used a LOT to piss people off purely for the sake of it.
