As claimed by ProPublica last year due to a misunderstanding since messages, voice calls, media, location sharing, calls, and status updates. Those are protected by the end-to-end encryption protocol on all of your devices:
It means that nobody, not even WhatsApp and Meta, can see the content of your messages. And also listen to your private calls, but it is essential to bring a report option to keep the platform and other people safe,” adds the report.
The report further added. The feature is in the developmental stage and is expected to soon release for WhatsApp Desktop users.
