On a related note, WhatsApp has recently rolled out an in-app support feature for ‘specific beta testers.’ The feature basically allows users’ chat with the messaging platform to report any bugs within the app. WABetaInfo reported that the feature was rolled out to select users via Android beta version 188.8.131.52 update.
“WhatsApp is working on “Support Chat Threads”: they will help you and WhatsApp to manage bug reports. Support Threads are verified end-to-end encrypted chats and they’ll be closed after the issue is fixed. Availability: in a future iOS and Android update,” WABetaInfo noted.
Apparently, WhatsApp will respond to users’ queries in a group chat and users will get the option to choose whether to join the group or not. In case you want to know what features WhatsApp has up its sleeves for the coming months you can check here.
