WhatsApp rolls out feature to turn off call alerts on Windows beta

Users now have the option to turn off call notifications on Windows 8.1 thanks to a new feature that has begun to roll out on the Meta-owned messaging service WhatsApp.
According to WABetaInfo, beta testers now have access to the option to turn off notifications for WhatsApp calls after downloading the 2.2250.4.0 update from the Microsoft Store.
Users can check if they have access to this functionality by going to WhatsApp Settings > Notifications. They can decide to turn off notifications for incoming WhatsApp calls if this function has a toggle.
Due to an unexpected issue, call notifications may appear even when the do not disturb mode is activated. With this feature, users may now manually remedy this error by turning off those alerts.
In the meantime, the messaging service began to roll out the capability to exchange contact cards on Windows beta last month.
Users might share contact cards on the same chat sharing sheet thanks to this feature.
