WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, has been adding new features and making the application’s use simple for its users.
WaBetaInfo reported on Friday that the instant messaging app is working on a block shortcut update within the notification bar. It had previously announced a way to block contacts from within the chat list. This time, the app has provided users with a shortcut.
Users will be able to block someone with the new feature when they receive a message notification on their phones.
“WhatsApp plans to introduce a block shortcut within notifications, but not always:” WhatsApp users can block someone right in their notifications. The app tracking website stated, “The block shortcut is only visible when you receive a message from unknown and untrusted contacts.”
Users may accidentally tap on the block option when responding to a notification, blocking their trusted contacts and limiting the feature to untrusted contacts.
In a future app update, users will have access to the new feature.
Media with caption
The tracking app said earlier this week that WhatsApp is releasing a new update that will let users know they can send media with a caption.
According to the app tracking website, the feature will enable users to send any kind of media, including documents, videos, GIFs, and images, while still maintaining the caption.
It stated, “The alert appears when a captioned image, video, GIF, or document is forwarded.”
In addition, WhatsApp offers its users the option to remove the caption from the media during the forwarding process in an effort to raise awareness of the new feature.
Those who download and install the most recent app update will have access to the feature.
