    Whatsapp uses a custom layer of encryption under the TLS layer. Because of this we are unable to block specific features of the app itself so its all or nothing I'm afraid.

    This is currently on our roadmap for the XG18 release in 2018.

    Unfortunately, due to the way application blocks work, it is almost always impossible to inject a block page which the browser will display. We do in fact redirect the request to a block page, but Web Apps are expecting a specific response back from the server and they hang when they see the block page. There isn't really that much more we can do here as we can't rewrite the application on the fly to display the block page.
