WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that now allows users to automatically mute unknown calls on the platform.
According to the Meta Channel on Instagram, this new feature will make WhatsApp even more private and give users more control.
This feature has been in beta testing for a while, and the stable version is now available for Android and iOS smartphone users. When enabled via the privacy settings menu, the app will automatically silence calls from unknown numbers.
Make sure you have installed the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone or update it through the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
Here’s how to silence calls from an unknown number on WhatsApp:
Click on the kebab menu in the top right corner Click on Privacy
Go to settings
Enable ‘Silence Unknown Callers’
Meta has been adding new features to WhatsApp almost every week. The company recently introduced WhatsApp channels in select markets, and WhatsApp also gained the ability to edit sent messages for up to 15 minutes.
