Assign chat admins

If you have a lot of chatters in a group chat or room, then it’s good to have a helping hand to moderate your chat. As the chat owner, you can also assign yourself as an admin.

Here’s how you can assign admins to your chat.

With this, you now have admins, who can help you control the chat discussion. You can even use the moderated chat as your chat type to pre-approve every message sent to the chat.
