WhatsApp updates group privacy settings and rolls out consecutive voice messages for WhatsApp web

Whatsapp has rolled out a few changes with the latest update. It has updated the group privacy settings where ‘Nobody’ could add you without your consent. But now, it seems that they can, with whatsapp rolling out a blacklist option. This feature was first introduced to Indian users but is now rolled out to the other markets as well. Apart from this, the other major change this time has to do with the user’s ability to listen to consecutive voice messages on the desktop via WhatsApp web.

According to WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo, Whatsapp is currently rolling out the feature in iOS beta version and Android beta version 2.19.298. It is remotely activating the feature. If you are not able to view the new updates, then whatsapp recommends saving your chats, and reinstalling whatsapp again, on your phone. The current update also includes the blacklist feature which should enable you to add on other contacts to the group without their consent.  You can check to see if your whatsapp features the latest updates by heading over to whatsapp settings> accounts>privacy>group. It should now list three options, everyone, my contacts, My contacts except. That means that your account is now current.

With the latest updates first unveiled to Indian users and now, rolled out to the other markets, it remains to be seen whether they meet the user’s expectation. With the other update being the ability to listen to consecutive voice messages on whatsapp web; it seems that these changes were rolled out just in time, with Dhantreas and Diwali around the corner. The whatsapp web feature is interesting, as it allows you to play two to three messages one after another, on the web and without any hassle.
