WhatsApp Users Will Soon Be Able To Mute Unknown Numbers

777 Views

WhatsApp is one of the most widely used messaging platforms, with over 2 billion users worldwide. This cross-platform app presents the most convenient solution to reduce distances by enabling friends and relatives to communicate as efficiently as possible. Despite the presence of other messaging tools like Messenger, Viber, and Telegram, the popularity of WhatsApp is unrivaled.

To improve user experience and eradicate any persistent issues, WhatsApp frequently launches new features for both Android and iOS versions. Recently, it has been revealed that the Meta-owned platform is working on a new feature that everyone has been demanding for some time. As per several reports, the latest feature named “Silence Unknown Callers” will enable the users to automatically block calls from any number not saved in the contacts list. The toggle option will be in the settings, and once enabled, it will block calls from unrecognized numbers. The number will still be shown in the call log to ensure no critical call is missed.

The main purpose of this feature is to eliminate the threat of spam calls and mitigate the risk of vishing – a cybercrime in which the attacker impersonates a legitimate entity to defraud an individual. With the ever-increasing popularity of WhatsApp and facile access to communicate with anyone, many perpetrators have used this tool to make a fool out of non-tech-savvy audiences. The latest feature is one of the many efforts made by the most popular messaging platform to further improve user experience.

Expected Release Date

While WhatsApp has provided no exact date for the upcoming update, sources claim that the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature will be released in the next few months. Alongside this feature, WhatsApp is also working on redesigning the attachment menu for the iOS version. Both features will be a part of the next update.
