WhatsApp has new features: instant calls and complaints about specific messages

Published

WhatsApp has been working hard recently to improve features and security measures for the popular instant messaging platform. Now complaints about messages and instant calls have been added.

Users can now report WhatsApp accounts by flagging a specific message with a new feature. You can press and hold a specific message to report it or block the user. This feature saves you a few taps when it comes to blocking a user. Complaints about messages can be useful in combating spam, harassment, unwanted SMS, illegal or criminal messages. In its latest report, WhatsApp says more than 2.2 million accounts were blocked in September alone.

Instant calls (Flash call) allows Android users who install or reinstall WhatsApp on their devices to check their phone number using an automatic call instead of SMS. WhatsApp claims this is a much safer option as everything happens inside the app.

WhatsApp also recently got disappearing messages and the ability to hide your last visit from certain people in your contact list. In addition, the user will now be able to see notifications about reactions to messages.

It also introduces a feature that removes the need to connect your smartphone to the network to use the messaging platform on other devices.

Tesla has long been talking about plans to introduce features related to the ability to share its cars. And now, hints of upcoming features appeared in the mobile application.

In the code of the new version of the Tesla app 4.3.1, three new features were mentioned:

  • Share your Tesla car with others
  • Vehicle sharing assets
  • Vehicle sharing endpoints

The functions themselves, apparently, are not in the application yet, but from the names we can understand what to expect from the upcoming updates. Tesla already allowed owners to add other users through a feature on its site last year. Tesla is now looking to integrate the same functionality into its mobile app.

Such a function will allow not only to easily and simply share a car with friends or family members, but also, for example, rent out your car for a short-term rental as part of a car-sharing service, which Tesla has talked about more than once.

The release of a new version of Android and a new shell for the Note10 line in general was expected, as Samsung previously extended support for a number of models, including these, by three years, but no one expected an update for the specified line so soon.
