The Report feature will be available when users view messaging options in a future update of the desktop app. The feature will allow users to report a specific message. The site wrote, “The same rules from WhatsApp for Android and iOS apply when reporting a message: only the reported message is forwarded to the moderation team using the reporting message option.”
Notably, the feature differs from reporting a contact in users’ chat information. “In fact, the 5 most recent messages from the conversation are forwarded to WhatsApp when the contact is reported so that the moderation team can better understand the context,” added WABetaInfo.
According to the website, with the new report option, already available on WhatsApp for Android and iOS, it will be easier to report only certain messages from the desktop client. The release date of the feature is not known as it is still in the development stage.
