WhatsApp is testing the most awaited feature, “Silence Unknown Callers” designed to mitigate the nuisance of spam and scam calls that have increased lately. With this new privacy feature, calls from unknown numbers are automatically silenced, providing users with peace of mind while still allowing them to access call history and notifications. Download the latest WhatsApp APK to enable the “Silence unknown callers” feature.
Spam has become an increasingly frustrating issue for smartphone users across the world. Especially in India, users are seeing an influx in scam calls every day even on WhatsApp.
With the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature, WhatsApp takes a proactive approach to automatically put unknown numbers in silent mode.
When enabled, calls from numbers not saved in the user’s contact list will be automatically silenced. This means that users will not receive a ringing notification or an interruption when an unknown caller tries to reach them. Instead, these calls will be silently sent to the background, allowing users to continue their tasks uninterrupted.
However, notifications related to these calls will still be visible in the notification panel, ensuring users can easily identify any missed calls or messages. Additionally, call history will continue to be available in the app, enabling users to review any unrecognized calls at their convenience.
