WhatsApp for iOS will identify missed calls in "Do Not Disturb" mode

WhatsApp is working on a new feature for its users on iPhones. The messenger prepares an iOS API to detect when a call has been missed, because of the “Do Not Disturb” mode.

The information comes from WABetaInfo. According to the post, the messaging app has been testing the system API, which explains the presence of the missed call by the fact that Apple’s system functionality is enabled.

The Cupertino giant’s software tool has received more features with Focus mode in iOS 15 and can now prevent incoming calls and notifications, as you see in the screenshot above.

The flag that it has been “Muted by Do Not Disturb” will only appear to the recipient. This means that the person who made the call will not know that the call was lost because of the iOS feature.

For now, testing is only conducted by the beta app, accessible through TestFlight. The trend is that the function will be definitively released to all users with iOS 15 installed.

This week, WhatsApp will support the new API, and a new update will be posted on the App Store that will make the capability available to everyone.
