Meta-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp has introduced two new safety features ‘Flash Calls’ and ‘Message Level Reporting’ for users in India. Flash calls and message level reporting features will allow people to have better security and control over their use of the messaging app. Android users new to Flash Call or those who change their device frequently can also choose to verify their phone numbers via an automated call instead of SMS.
