WhatsApp now allows you to report people or groups as spam; album feature comes to Android
WhatsApp rolled out a new feature on Android making it possible for users to report contacts and groups as spam. According to a report by wabetainfo.com, this new feature works similar to the Truecaller functionality of reporting calls by unknown numbers as spam. Previously, it was only possible to report unknown users and groups where you were added as spam. The company has also updated the Android version with the new album feature. This feature was recently rolled out for the iOS version of WhatsApp. Thanks to albums, you will be able to share multiple photos and videos at once and they will be grouped together, saving space in the chat screen. Forwarding of photos will now be easier. In Android, you can also select the album and that isn’t possible on iOS.
This comes days after WhatsApp has just received a new update for iOS that brings in photo filters, automatic albums in chats, and the ability to send quick replies. The new update also introduces filters that can be added directly to GIFs, photos, and videos shared via WhatsApp camera. Users can also choose existing media on their device to add any of the five filter options which include pop, black and white, cool, chrome, and film.
