WhatsApp advances step by step, slowly but surely with new updates that add the most interesting functions and features. After learning that they will soon add channels (in the style of Telegram), the newest will make us forget the calls from strangers that can be very annoying.
It is true that anyone can call us on WhatsApp, even if we do not know this contact and we have not saved it. We could easily fall for spam, but here comes the new update of the Meta messaging app to put an end to this problem.
Bye, bye to unknown WhatsApp calls
It is surprising that at this point, WhatsApp does not have an option to filter these unwanted calls. From the configuration, we can change various privacy settings such as who can see our information, the status or the last time. But, this utility was missing, which will be practical for many users.
Today we know details about this update. As detailed by WaBetaInfo, the well-known website that keeps us informed about WhatsApp changes, a new menu will come to the application to silence calls from strangers.
This option will make WhatsApp ignore calls from unknown contacts automatically, although we do not know if it will be activated by default when it is deployed for everyone.
As we can see in the screenshot below, it will be as easy as flip that switch It will appear in the privacy settings. By keeping it active, we will avoid unknown calls.
Even if WhatsApp ignores them, will still appear in the call list, as well as in the notifications of our Android. It is true that they are usually calls that do not interest us, but it does not hurt that they appear, in case it turns out that it was an important call.
Meta continues to update and refine the WhatsApp formula, which does not give up its position as a leader in the field of mobile messaging. At the moment, this feature is under development so we can’t test itNot even in beta state.
