For iPhone users, WhatsApp has released a new beta update. Recently, the features tracker WABetaInfo has spotted a few features that WhatsApp is testing. The Blocked Contact Notice feature is one of them, this feature was also spotted on Android earlier this month. Now the instant messaging app is working to implement this feature on the iOS app as well.

Other than that, another interesting feature named Facebook Pay is also spotted under development and we will get to see the feature inside WhatsApp. A few days ago, this Facebook Pay feature was spotted and the purpose behind rolling out this feature is to allow users to send money on Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger.
Users should check the latest WhatsApp for iPhone beta in TestFlight for the new update and it comes with version number 188.8.131.52. But as we told you that these two features are under development, so if you update to the latest version you will not get to see these features.
The first feature called Blocked Contact Notice feature will be appeared in the chat when you have blocked or unblocked a contact. WhatsApp will add a bubble in the chat reporting, every time you block a contact, “You blocked this contact. Tap to unblock.”
The same will happen when you unblock a contact. The WABetaInfo has reported that this bubble will be added in the chat section only. However, the contact you have blocked will not get any notification.
