WhatsApp is scheduled to launch a new function called Silence Unknown Callers, which will allow users to filter out spam calls.

The Facebook-owned communications platform WhatsApp has announced the rollout of their WhatsApp Business API, which will enable businesses to manage communications and send notifications and other non-promotional messages, such as appointment reminders, event tickets and more.

On selecting that icon, users will be redirected to a contact list where an additional participant may be selected.
