Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a new update called 'Do Not Disturb' (DND) mode support for missed calls to some beta testers through the Google Play beta programme which will let users know if they have missed a call due to DND mode.
Once the new feature comes into effect, users will be able to see a handy tagline under the missed call history item indicating that the call was silenced due to Do Not Disturb.
A report published by the Android Police, users will also see a similar blurb when they punch up the person's chat thread.
It will also help users share the screenshot of the indicator with the caller to let them know that the call was not intentionally ignored but was rather put on the DND mode.
Notably earlier in June this year, WhatsApp had introduced new features for group voice calls, like muting and messaging participants along with banner notifications while in a group call.
When someone new joins a group voice call and is offscreen, users will see a banner notification saying, "X joined the call".
Also, the users can mute others on a group voice call. The feature will avoid listening to accidental background chatter while the users try to hear something another person is saying.
