WhatsApp is introducing a new feature for beta testers, already available once updating to the latest 220.127.116.11 update.
Actually, when you report a contact to WhatsApp, WhatsApp elaborates your report considering several factors, like the number of reports received for that phone number from different users, if the account of the reported user is new and it has already received some reports, etc…
With this update, WhatsApp is introducing a new way to verify if a report is reliable: receiving a copy of recent messages from that chat.
WhatsApp never receives your messages without your permissions. If you decide to report a contact, you agree to forward a copy to WhatsApp of the recent messages from that chat.
WhatsApp is also adding the same report feature for group and business chats:
This feature is available TODAY for Android beta testers and it will be following soon for iOS beta testers in the next few weeks.
