Tired of spammers? WhatsApp allows you to mute unknown callers



World-renowned instant messaging application WhatsApp has finally announced a feature that countless people have been waiting impatiently for.

Not long after it announced that users could lock chats in a protected folder to improve privacy on WhatsApp, the platform has announced two new features: the ability to silence unknown callers and a privacy checkup feature.

Sharing details about the update, WABetaInfa shared: “Since this is an official announcement, it means these features are now available to everyone on the latest version of the app.

“As a result, it is now possible to find the option to mute unknown callers within the privacy settings screen, making it easier for users to reduce the risk of falling victim to scammers and mute unsolicited unknown calls.”

Moreover, the website shared: “In the same section, it is also possible to review privacy settings with ease by selecting the privacy checkup banner. With this new feature, WhatsApp will assist users in configuring their privacy settings that enable them to select the appropriate level of protection, directly within a single place.

“By choosing ‘Start checkup’ within the Privacy settings screen, users will be guided through various privacy layers designed to enhance the privacy and security of their accounts.”

In the official blog post, WhatsApp also shed light on how vital securing private communication is.

The platform shared that it wanted to encourage people to engage in secure check-ins with each other through private WhatsApp messages.

This initiative aimed to provide a safe environment for individuals to express themselves, particularly with those they hold dear more.

These features have also been released to iOS users.

Moon train operations are planned by NASA.




The goal is to construct the first lunar train system, which will enable safe, independent, and effective cargo transportation on the moon, according to robotics specialist Ethan Schaler of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

He went on, “The day-to-day functioning of a sustainable lunar base in the 2030s will depend heavily on a robust, long-lasting robotic transport system.”

The Flexible Levitation on a Track, or FLOAT, is the name of the proposed lunar rail system. According to NASA, the establishment of a railway system on the moon is “critical to the daily operations.”

According to the space agency, the primary objective of FLOAT is to offer transportation services in regions of the moon where astronauts are engaged in activities. To do this, cargoes of lunar soil and other materials will need to be transported to various regions of the moon.

Each robot will be able to transport cargo of various sizes and shapes at a pace of roughly 1 mph (1.61 km/h), according to Dr. Schaler.

Notably, NASA also declared new initiatives last month to create and test new vehicle models intended for moon exploration.
