How to add someone as an admin to a Facebook Messenger group using the mobile app?
There are two ways you can use to add a new administrator for the group. The first is directly from the group chat. There, press and hold your finger on the profile picture of the user you want to appoint as a new admin.
By keeping your finger pressed on the user’s profile picture, a menu of options related to that user will be displayed. In this menu of options, all you have to do is click on the option Appoint administrator, which will appear first.
The second method will help you to choose the new admin from the whole list of users in the group. To do this, in the group chat, click on the button with the “i” icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Pressing the button will take you to the group information page. There you will find a large number of options, where you have to click on the Members option to access the list of users that have been added to the group.
Once you enter the members section, you will see that everyone is organized in two different lists. Here, click on the three dots button to the right of the person you want to be the administrator, and in the menu that will open click on the option Appoint administrator that appears first.
