You can access the feature to dismiss an admin by tapping the Group info; however, you need to be an admin to use it.

Also, there are times when you’ve a decent group of people in a chat but one of the admins doesn’t fit anymore. The dismiss as admin feature is a boon and curse depending on the usage.
