New Delhi. WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that will allow users to report status updates on desktop beta. According to WABetaInfo, the new feature will allow users to report status updates in the menu of the status section. If users spot any suspicious status update that may violate the messaging app terms, they will be able to report it to the moderation team with the new option.
Similar to reporting messages, status updates will be forwarded from the moderation region to the company so they can see if the status has been violated. However, this feature also does not break end-to-end encryption. Neither WhatsApp nor Meta will be able to see the content of these messages and no one can listen to their private calls, but it is important for the company to bring a report option to keep the platform and users safe.
Feature work in progress
The report states that the ability to report status updates is currently under development and will be released in a future update to WhatsApp Desktop Beta. Meanwhile last month, the messaging platform rolled out a new feature for some beta testers that allows users to view profile photos within group chats on a desktop.
More than 37 lakh accounts banned
Let us tell you that WhatsApp recently banned more than 37 lakh accounts in India in the month of November under the new IT Rules 2021. The company said that between November 1 and November 31, 3,716,000 WhatsApp accounts were banned and of these, 990,000 accounts were banned before users reported them.
946 complaints received
According to reports, WhatsApp received 946 complaints from users in November, including an appeal to ban 830 accounts. Out of these, action was taken against only 73 accounts. WhatsApp said it responds to all complaints except in cases where the complaint is considered a duplicate of a previous ticket.
