The popular instant messaging platform WhatsApp is testing a new feature that will see people receive a new warning message when they receive a message from a business that is not in their contacts. When the message is received, people will see a new interface and have the option to completely block the business or add them to their contacts.
The new feature, which was reported by WABetaInfo, is currently being tested by some of the people who are part of the WhatsApp TestFlight beta program.
As you can see in this screenshot, when you receive a message from unknown company accounts, a different and updated view is displayed: this view explains that you have received a message from a company that does not is not saved in your contact list. In this case, you can choose between two different options: block or save to your contact list.
The redesigned view is available for specific beta testers, and more activations will follow in future updates.

WhatsApp is already one of the best iPhone apps for sending and receiving instant messages, especially with those who use Android devices. New features like this are welcome and will only strengthen the app’s place on many home screens.

It’s also important to remember that this feature is currently available in beta and it’s not known when, if ever, it will be available to everyone. However, WhatsApp is normally good enough to push these things through the beta channel and in the App Store.
