WhatsApp is testing a handy new feature that will give channel owners more control over managing their channels. In the latest beta version 22.214.171.124, WhatsApp is trying out the ability for channel owners to add new admins.
This feature, found in the channel information screen, will allow owners to appoint trusted users as admins to help run busy channels. The admin list will stay private from regular followers. While still in testing, this feature promises to provide a useful management tool for owners of large, active channels on WhatsApp.
