Next up, is Shake to Report, this will allow the user to report any bug in WhatsApp within a chat or any of its functionalities, this Shake action will trigger the Contact Us section, where you’ll be able to log the seen bugs. This feature is currently limited to the beta version only and might take some more time than others to reach the final build. As the fine-tuning of the shake is vital or else this might annoyingly trigger everywhere with a little shake of the device.

Lastly, there’s also a single Tap to Unblock a user, which was previously banned, from the group, all these features are available in the beta. However, you won’t find all of them working right away in the beta version. And even when the final build comes out, there’s a chance that all of them won’t make it to the final version.
