Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a new feature, which will allow users to report status updates, on iOS beta.
The beta testers will see a new "Report" option in the status updates, reports WABetaInfo.
With the new feature, users can report any status update that might violate the Terms of Service, which will then be sent to the moderation team.
Also, the feature makes sure that the messages, media, location sharing, calls and status updates are all protected by end-to-end encryption on all devices.
This means that the content of the messages and private calls will remain inaccessible to anyone, including WhatsApp, Meta or any third-party proxy provider.
The new feature is useful as it will make the platform safe and secure for all users.
The ability to report status updates is available to some beta testers after installing the latest beta version of the application, and it is expected to roll out to more users over the coming days, the report said.
Last month, WhatsApp was reportedly working on this feature for Android beta.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, the messaging platform had announced that it was rolling out new features coming to its status, including 'Voice Status', 'Status Reactions' and much more.
