When this is done, all the other participants (except admins) would not be able to send in any group text messages, images, videos, GIFs, documents, voice messages etc. It is known for its streamlined group chat implementation.
Reports suggest that, the new feature will allow admins of a particular group to activate the "Restricted Groups" setting and once activated other members will only be able to read admin's message. They will be given a new feature named "Message Admin", so that they share it in the group with the consent of group admin. The administrator will then approve the message before forwarding it to the group. Sometimes it is really annoying when some group members send messages with no reason in group.
While it could prove useful - if you want some important details to remain on-screen instead of being pushed out of sight by newer messages, for instance - it is also likely to be abused by admins, who could easily use it to annoy other group members.
