WhatsApp is Working On a Shortcut For The “Block” Option in Notifications


Soon, WhatsApp will make it simpler to ban messages from unknown senders. According to reports, the chat platform is developing a shortcut for blocking users directly from chat message notifications.

WaBetaInfo reports that the chat business intends to introduce a shortcut that, when activated, will immediately block someone from the chat message notice. But only when you receive a message from an unknown contact will this choice be available. This restriction is necessary, according to the sources, because users occasionally unintentionally press the block action when responding to notifications from their trusted contacts. The function is anticipated to appear in a subsequent release.

Other methods to restrict discussions from unknown people are apparently being developed by WhatsApp. According to a different tip from WaBetaInfo, WhatsApp is developing a shortcut for blocking people immediately inside the chat list so that you don’t even have to open the message.

The camera mode option will soon be available for iOS users on WhatsApp.

Basically, the feature enables fast camera mode changes for quick and simple photo or video capture. A small group of Android beta testers have already received this capability. Updates on WhatsApp come thick and quick. To enhance user experience, the chat firm continuously updates the programme with both little and large changes. Recently, the Meta firm stated that it now supports proxy servers, something it did not previously. You can access WhatsApp through servers set up by volunteers and organisations using a proxy server to get around the app restriction.

“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.
