WhatsApp recently introduced two new safety features 'Flash Calls' and 'Message Level Reporting' for users in India.
The Flash Calls and Message Level Reporting features will allow people better security and control over their usage of the messaging app.
With Flash Calls new Android users or the ones who change their devices frequently, one can choose to verify their phone numbers via an automated call instead of an SMS.
The Message Level Reporting feature allows users to report a particular message received on WhatsApp. This can be done by simply long pressing a particular message to either report or block a user.
