Today, we are thrilled to announce that the the Groups admin role in Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is now generally available. This new Azure Active Directory role enables you to perform group management tasks for and Azure AD security groups without requiring Global administrator permissions.
Users with the Groups administrator role can use the Microsoft 365 Admin center, the Azure portal and other methods to create, edit, delete, and restore groups, and manage Office 365 Groups policies (example - creation, naming, and expiration policies).

You can provision the Groups admin role using Azure AD PowerShell:
#Below steps need to be completed only once to install the Azure AD scripts
Install-Module -Name AzureAD
#Connect (use privileged role)
# Get the user to be assigned the role, replacing firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address of the user
