WhatsApp introduces new feature context card to help users avoid groups

This innovative feature is designed to enhance user control and security.

LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-July 10th, 2024) WhatsApp, now owned by Meta, has introduced a new feature called the Context Card to help users avoid unwanted interactions and groups.

This innovative feature is designed to enhance user control and security. When an unknown individual adds a user to a group chat, a context card will appear, providing essential details about the group.

The context card will display information such as who created the group, when it was created, and a brief description.

If the person adding the user is from their contact list, that information will also be included on the card.

The Primary aim of this feature is to protect users from spam or fraudulent activities.

If a user wishes not to be part of the added group, the context card includes a button to leave the group immediately.

Additionally, it provides a link to further details on WhatsApp’s safety tools.

This new feature is expected to help users avoid unwanted interactions and leave groups without fully joining them.

According to WhatsApp, the rollout of the Context Card feature has already begun and will be available to all users in the coming weeks.
