WhatsApp has brought the Android beta 2.21.18.10 version updates that have made some adjustments in the report feature. The new WhatsApp Report Feature increases the privacy standards for every user and provides more insights into what will actually happen if they want to report a contact.

WhatsApp report feature will let a user report an individual, group, or an unknown for obscene and insolent messages. Furthermore, it asks for users’ permission to read several last messages of the reported contact/group. This is a verification process if someone actually offends you and will help the chat app makers to better process this matter.

Previously, WhatsApp hasn’t mentioned any exact number of messages that will be forwarded from the reported contact. But this new update has minimized and clearly mentioned the messages that will be forwarded to the server when you report a conversation.

New Changes:

After the installation of the WhatsApp Android beta 2.21.18.10 update, if your report a contact, only the last five messages will be forward on WhatsApp. Besides, the system will work as previously. While reporting a contact it’ll ask for your permission and will give you the option to instantly block the individual, or exit that particular group.
