Group Settings feature is now available only for Android beta users only, as per a report, it will be rolling out to all users across Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone platforms. This WhatsApp feature will allow group admins to exercise more control over the groups they manage.

WABetaInfo reports claims as " a popular fan site that tests new WhatsApp features early, you need to have the WhatsApp for Android beta version 2.18.132 in order to see the feature. Referred to as a Restricted Group feature, group administrators will be able to find it by navigating to Group info > Group settings > Edit group info. Here, users will be able to choose who can change the group's subject, icon, and description - with two choices 1) All participants or 2) Only admins. The new Group settings section is also where administrators can assign new group admins. All participants can normally edit the group description, icon and subject, but finally the administrator can restrict this feature today, preventing no-administrators to modify the group description"
