Participants in a group conversation have different roles. You are either a group admin or a group member. The roles are synced across all your devices and on all platforms. Every group conversation has at least one group admin who holds the highest level of permissions.
The creator of a group is by default the group admin and is the only one who can also delete the group conversation. There can be several admins.
