San Francisco, March 2 (IANS) Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature, which will allow users to report status updates, on Android beta.
Beta testers will see a new “report” action within the status options, reports WABetaInfo.
With the new feature, users can report any status update that might violate the Terms of Service, which will then be sent to the company’s moderation team.
Also, the feature makes sure that the messages, media, location sharing, calls and status updates are all protected by end-to-end encryption on all devices.
This means that no one else, not even WhatsApp, Meta and a proxy provider, can read the users’ personal messages and listen to their private calls.
The new feature is useful as it will make the platform safe and secure for all users.
The ability to report status updates is available for some beta testers after installing the latest update of WhatsApp beta for Android on the Play Store, and is expected to roll out to more users over the coming days, the report said.
In January, it was reported that the messaging platform was working on this feature for Android beta.
