The latest setting is for groups, which lets a group administrator decide who can send message in a group; a move that gives more control to the administrator. “Today, we’re launching a new group setting where only admins are able to send messages to a group...to enable this setting, open Group Info, tap Group Settings > Send Messages and select Only Admins.
