The messaging app announced that the new feature will help users reduce spam calls significantly. In recent years, spam calls have become a growing problem with scammers and their unsolicited calls.

WhatsApp provides the option to block and report these callers and, thanks to this feature and users will finally avoid receiving calls from unknown numbers by muting them, which are often associated with spam calls.

The ability to silence unknown callers is a feature under development and it will be released in a future update of the app, revealed the WABetainfo.
