WhatsApp Introduces New Feature to Silence Unknown Callers
In its latest update, WhatsApp aims to provide users with more control over their privacy settings and mitigate the annoyance of spam calls, the company announced. The update introduces two notable features: Silence Unknown Callers and Privacy Checkup, offering users enhanced privacy options and improved call management.
The Silence Unknown Callers feature allows users to avoid disruptive rings from unknown callers while still being aware of incoming calls that may be important. With this feature enabled, calls from unfamiliar numbers will not cause the phone to ring audibly but will be visible in the call list. This functionality strikes a balance between maintaining privacy and ensuring that important calls can still be acknowledged and responded to promptly.
