WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, is developing a new feature that will let users post status updates on desktop beta.
According to WABetaInfo, the new feature would enable users to submit a status update directly from a new menu under the status area. Users will be able to use the new option to report any suspicious status update that may be in violation of the Terms of Service to the moderation team. The status update will be sent to the business for moderation purposes, just as the reporting notifications, so they can determine whether there has been a violation. The end-to-end encryption is not compromised by this functionality, though.
