WhatsApp might soon allow users to filter favorite chats from the clutter

Do you find it annoying that there is so much spam and unnecessary messages in your WhatsApp chat feed, preventing you from seeing the conversations with your loved ones or important matters? Even though WhatsApp users can pin their favorite conversations, this feature is limited to three contacts, which makes it difficult for users to effectively organize their important chats. WhatsApp is reportedly developing a new custom chat filter feature that prioritizes favorite contacts in order to address this problem.

The new feature was observed in the most recent TestFlight beta update, according to Wabetainfo. Marking favorite contacts is a feature that WhatsApp previously announced and is extended by the chat filter feature. Users will be able to prioritize and expedite access to their most crucial conversations by using this new filter to filter their chats based on their favorite contacts. Additionally, this feature will work with WhatsApp Web as well, allowing users to synchronize their preferences across different devices.

Remarkably, the feature works in tandem with another one that WhatsApp had previously revealed: the one-tap ability to call favorite contacts directly from the calls tab. As per the report, the two features are designed to enhance the user experience and customize WhatsApp, thereby increasing its efficiency for users.

It is important to keep in mind, though, that the chat filter feature is still under development and will need some time to reach beta testing and then full public release. In a similar vein, the favorite contacts feature is still being worked on and should be added in a later release.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is developing a new feature to improve user privacy in keeping with future developments. WhatsApp is working to improve user privacy as well. Wabetinfo claims that WhatsApp is testing a new feature that will improve privacy by prohibiting users from taking screenshots of other users’ display pictures, or profile photos. The most recent Android WhatsApp beta, which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, includes this feature.

When the feature launches, WhatsApp users will get a notification saying, “Can’t take a screenshot due to app restrictions,” if they attempt to take a screenshot of someone else’s profile photo. This feature won’t stop them from using a different device, like a phone or camera, to take a picture of another user’s profile photo, though. Therefore, even after the feature is released, users should continue to exercise caution when choosing their display picture.

This feature’s main goal is to lessen the possibility of harassment and impersonation on WhatsApp. In the coming weeks, it is anticipated that all users will have access to the feature, which is currently only available to a small number of beta testers.

This feature is consistent with WhatsApp’s earlier 2019 decision to prohibit users from downloading the profile photos of other users. In addition, Meta’s messaging app is creating a specific chatbot that can confirm information and distinguish false information produced by deepfakes and artificial intelligence.
