‘Review’ requests for suspended channels likely on WhatsApp. A positive development has taken place with the development of a new feature by WhatsApp, the famed messaging platform, which will enable its users to request re-examination of their suspended channels, according to a report by WaBetaInfo.

It was discovered via the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update available on the Google Play Store that the feature, once rolled out, will allow users of the meta-owned platform to ask the platform to restore their suspended channels.

During automated reviews carried out by the platform’s policy ambit on WhatsApp channels, which are subjected to a set of predefined algorithms and criteria, WhatsApp channels are expected to operate within specific guidelines that provide a basic set of rules as well as what will be deemed prohibited content in the future.

The problem with these algorithms is that even though they are effective, they are not always efficient and may lead to errors as well as misunderstandings, as a result of which channels may be suspended for no actual reason other than that they violated a rule that, after further examination and human review, turns out not to have happened.

By ensuring that a fair and transparent process is followed, this improvement will allow channel owners to feel empowered by making the process fair and transparent.

Suspended channels have the option to request a review in order to allow the users the opportunity to bring to the attention of the administrators any misunderstandings or disparities that may have led to the suspension.

If the channel owner chooses to ask for a manual review, he or she will have the opportunity to make any necessary corrections before the suspended channels are restored, thus giving them the chance to make any necessary changes.
