Previous news? WhatsApp beta for Android what’s new? WhatsApp is working on the process to move the chat history to a new Android device!

In December, we shared information about a new feature under development on WhatsApp Desktop beta: the ability to report status updates. This feature allows users to report unwanted status updates that may violate the company’s Terms of Service, in addition to the already available feature to report messages.
The feature is currently in development on WhatsApp Desktop beta, but we have new information to share about the Android app today.

As shown in this screenshot, WhatsApp plans to introduce a report button within the status options. In case you report a status update, its content will be forwarded to the moderation team for review to determine if it violates the company’s Terms of Service.

As mentioned in our previous article, the introduction of this feature does not compromise end-to-end encryption as messages, voice calls, media, location sharing, calls, and status updates are all protected by the end-to-end encryption protocol on all devices. End-to-end encryption ensures that no one, including WhatsApp, Meta, or any proxy provider, can view the content of your messages or listen to your private calls. The report feature for status updates is important for maintaining the safety of both the platform and its users. Note that this is not so unusual as other instant messaging apps have similar report features.

The ability to report status updates is a feature under development on WhatsApp beta for Android and it is planned to be released in the future. As always, an additional article will be available on this website when we have further details to share with you.
