Deleting WhatsApp group Without Leaving Out ! Is it Possible?

So , It is not possible to delete the Whatsapp Group without leaving it As delete group option is not available by default from the WhatsApp , which will be available only when you leave the Group.

Note :-

Deleting a WhatsApp group Permanently Just means that the admin of that group is leaving , and other participants will be there on the group and they will be able to chat in the group and automatically a new admin will be selected for that group.

My Suggestion is that :-

  • You Should remove every participant (member) of the group .
  • After removing all members, You should also leave that group.
Your group will be deleted permanently.
 
Hurray ! Your group is deleted .
