You can now block incoming messages from people who fill your inbox with spam😎
Blocking contacts will restrict the blocked users to send messages to you & enable direct conversations.
The feature comes in handy to restrict audiences from spamming your WhatsApp with unnecessary messages or Broadcasts like morning wishes, business promotions & more.
This way, you only block incoming messages from such users. One thing you should know is that you can still send WhatsApp Broadcast to them. The only difference is you won’t receive any messages from their side.
How to block incoming messages?
If you wish to prevent incoming messages from the user, click the ‘Block all messages’ button & press confirm on the next screen to prevent further incoming communication from the user.
