WhatsApp, owned by Meta, is introducing new safety tools for users on its Android beta platform. When beta users receive messages from unknown phone numbers, a new safety screen will appear, providing options to block unknown contacts or report them to the moderation team. The screen also offers information on how to stay safe in chat by checking profile details like name, photo, and country code. Additionally, the platform ensures added privacy and control by not notifying the sender that their messages have been read until the user chooses to reply or add the contact to their address book.

These safety tools are currently available to some beta testers who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta update for Android and are expected to roll out to more users in the coming days. Earlier, the instant messaging platform introduced a new feature which enables users to create new groups while forwarding messages. The platform has been further working on an animated avatar feature for Android beta, aiming to enhance users' interactions and communication experience. Furthermore, WhatsApp recently rolled out a feature on Android beta that enables users to send high-quality videos.
