WhatsApp is working on yet another helpful feature. The Meta-owned app is reportedly working on a new feature that will enable users to report status updates.
However, the feature was earlier in its testing phase for WhatsApp Desktop beta, and the company is now working on the same for Android beta.
According to a statement by WABetaInfo, the Twitter account which tracks modifications in WhatsApp build, “the opening of this feature does not compromise end-to-end encryption as notes, voice calls, media, location sharing, calls, and status updates are all covered by the end-to-end encryption protocol on all devices.”
The upcoming feature will allow users to report status updates that might break the platform’s Terms of Service. In addition to the already available feature to report messages, the report adds WABetaInfo.
The feature will come with a report button available within the status options.
If a WhatsApp user reports a status update, that status/content will be shipped to the moderation team for inspection. They will then check if it breaks the platform’s Terms of Service.
The report further counts that” no one, including WhatsApp, Meta, or any proxy provider, can regard the content of your messages or listen to your private calls.”
The feature is currently under development position on WhatsApp beta for Android. And we hope to see this feature soon.
