It will soon be simpler to disable WhatsApp chats from unknown senders. The chat service is purportedly developing a shortcut for blocking users that would appear in their alerts for new messages.
According to a report from WaBetaInfo, the chat service is working on a button that, when clicked, would immediately ban the sender of the offending chat message. This choice, however, won’t be accessible until you get a message from a person you haven’t previously communicated with. The studies state that this restriction is necessary because users may inadvertently respond with the block action while interacting with alerts from their friends and family. The next update should include this functionality.
According to reports, WhatsApp is also developing new features to help users stop receiving messages from strangers. WaBetaInfo also claims that WhatsApp is developing a feature that would allow users to blacklist contacts without even seeing the message itself.
WhatsApp’s camera mode is coming to iOS users in a future update. To put it simply, this function enables you to easily and rapidly take both video and still images by cycling between the several camera settings. Certain beta users of Android have already received this update.
The status updates on WhatsApp are constant. The messaging service often releases both small and significant updates meant to enhance the app’s functionality and user experience. The Meta business has just revealed its newfound support for the Proxy server protocol. Using a proxy server, which has been put up by individuals and groups all around the world, is the only way to access WhatsApp once the app has been blocked.
“Connecting via proxy maintains the high level of privacy and security that WhatsApp provides. Your personal messages will still be protected by end-to-end encryption — ensuring they stay between you and the person you’re communicating with and are not visible to anyone in between, not the proxy servers, WhatsApp, or Meta,” WhatsApp wrote in a post.
