Independent of the reasons, to block a telephone contact is always uncomfortable. For the management of these people, be a little less ungrateful, WhatsApp simplified the process.
Before the change, it was necessary to enter the Settings menu (or Settings, if you are the owner of an iPhone) and dive consecutively by the options Account, Privacy, and Contacts are blocked (only Blocked for iOS users).
Originally reported by the specialized site WABetaInfo through its Twitter account, the functionality makes everything easier, since now the messaging application gives you the option directly after you write the text to the person.
On phones with Android, WhatsApp displays a pop-up window that reads “Unlock [name of contact] to send a message.”
In exchange, the holders of an iPhone today see a message appear in the bottom area of the screen that says “do you Want to release to [name of contact]?”.
Then, in both cases, there are two text or buttons, as appropriate, although in a different order, with two options: “Unlock” and “Cancel”.
Faced with the possibility of having limited it by mistake to a person with which usually dialogue, it is now possible to write the message. However, at the time of clicking on the icon to send it, the software generates the same warnings and alternatives.
In times of quarantine and social isolation, the digital communication tools remote have experienced an unusual popularity. WhatsApp has been the most, according to what is revealed to the consulting firm Kantar.
According to a survey of more than 25,000 people in 30 markets held from 14 to 24 march, WhatsApp has seen a 40 percent increase in the use.
In the early days of the pandemic, the flood was 27 per cent. Climbed to 41 per cent in the intermediate stage, and increased up to 51 percent in the later stages, explained to TechCrunch. Spain was the country where the use of the app is set up, with 76 percent.
“In all platforms of messaging, the growth in use has been greatest in the age group of 18 to 34 years, according to the study. In addition, WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram saw an increase of over 40 per cent in the use of this same demographic group,” said the medium.
