I am in a WhatsApp group. Now, due to some quarrel in the group, the group Admin has left. Now, I have become the Admin of the group all of a sudden.

How is the next Admin chosen? Is it purely random or does the previous Admin choose someone before leaving?

    Shouldn't this question be closed because it demonstrates, as from the answer, an easily-derived fact? Where was the self-investigation proved to be at fault, rather than just missing? – wbogacz Dec 19 '17 at 17:12
  • I think this should be closed. You get answer straight away by just googling it – Vygintas B Dec 20 '17 at 9:16

It's purely random

From WhatsApp FAQ

If you are the only group admin and you exit a group, a participant is chosen at random to become the new admin
