Whatsapp has been testing the latest update to their beta version in Android and iOS application, giving more knowledge to its upcoming authentication feature, WABetaInfo reported.
The biometric authentication feature for Android is still in the development progress. But whenever it will launch it will allow Whatsapp users to lock or unlock their devices with the help of their fingerprints.
The major thing that will be implemented with this update that it will block the screenshots of the conversation, just like you can’t take a screenshot while watching Netflix in your smartphone.
Whatsapp users can also set the app to lock automatically after the designated time given by the user. While the app is locked, people can still be able to answer called and reply to the messages via notifications.
The other major feature that is currently being tested is the brand new UI for the app with Whatsapp doodle, which is also available in the beta version of the app.
