The most popular messaging app WhatsApp has introduced two new safety features in India. These new features include flash calls and message-level reporting. The new features by WhatsApp will allow users to verify themselves while logging in with a call and will be able to report specific messages, instead of reporting the while chat or a user. 

WhatsApp gives its users an option of SMS verification and now the flash call feature is an addition to that option. The Meta-owned instant messaging app is making efforts to make the platform more secure for Indian users. WhatsApp's new flash features give the option to the user to verify with an automated call and opposed to an SMS while setting up the application on a new smartphone. This feature is currently available for Android users. 

Reportedly, the instant messaging company's other feature called message-level reporting has been in the work for a while. This feature allows the users for reporting the accounts by flagging a specific message and it can be done by long-pressing a particular message.
