WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, is reportedly working on a new feature that is aimed at preventing spam and nuisance callers. The new feature, which is still in development, would help users avoid unwanted calls from unknown numbers.
The feature, which is being developed by WhatsApp, would allow users to silence calls from unknown numbers. The user would have the option to either allow such calls to go through or reject them. If the user chooses to reject them, the call will be blocked, and the user will not be disturbed.
It is worth noting that WhatsApp is based on phone numbers, meaning anyone with a valid number can call any other registered user, even if the caller does not have the contact saved in the address book. With the new feature, however, users can now control who can and cannot call them.
The feature is still in development and is not yet available in the app. However, the company has provided a preview of how the feature will work. According to the preview, users will be able to access the feature through the app’s Settings page. From there, they will be able to allow or block calls from unknown numbers.
The new feature being developed by WhatsApp could be a great way to avoid unwanted calls from unknown numbers. The feature is still in development and is not yet available in the app. We will have to wait and see how it works once it is rolled out by the company.
