How to silence unknown calls in WhatsApp for iOS and Android – UnlistedNews

WhatsApp is making it easier for users to reject unwanted calls. Meta’s instant messaging app now allows users to silence spam calls from unknown contacts. These calls can also be from numbers that are not saved in your contact list. The feature was announced early last week and is available in the stable versions of WhatsApp for mobile apps, both for Android and iOS. Users will still be able to see when they miss a call from unknown numbers.

In an announcement last week, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a new feature that allows WhatsApp users to mute incoming calls from unknown contacts. The feature is currently available in stable versions for WhatsApp for Android and iOS.

While users will still receive these calls, or a notification of a missed call if they don’t see it, muting calls from unknown numbers can prevent annoyance as these calls won’t ring.

If you want to put calls from an unknown number on your WhatsApp call in silent mode, here are the steps you can follow:

1. Open WhatsApp on your smartphone
2. Go to ‘Settings’ and select the ‘Privacy’ option
3. Under the ‘Privacy’ option, choose the ‘Calls’ tab
4. Here, you can enable the ‘Mute Unknown Callers’ option

Android users can access the ‘Settings’ by clicking on the three-dot option, while iPhone users can select the gear icon to access the ‘Settings’ menu.

In addition, users can also disable the ‘Mute Unknown Callers’ option if they want to continue hearing calls from contacts that are not saved in their contacts, including spam calls.

Alternatively, users can choose to save the numbers to their contact lists if they don’t want to miss important calls from known numbers that are not saved.
