WhatsApp is gearing up to introduce a series of sleek new features.
The praised messaging service is usually coming up with a bunch of new features and improvements, that are so needed to keep the messaging experience reliable. However, the upcoming features are said to change a bit the way we use the app.
Here is what you need to know.
WhatsApp’s Best Features so Far are Coming: What’s New
A few months ago, reports suggested a slew of new WhatsApp features is approaching. But we didn’t know exactly what to believe. Also, the details were scarce. Speculations got steamier, and now we finally have a fresh report.
WABetaInfo, a well-known tracker site, states that the biometric feature for the Android variant of the messaging service is happening!
Android users are already enjoying a cool feature. They can unlock their devices using their fingerprints.
Face Unlock feature details
WhatsApp is getting ready to introduce more biometric authentication for Android users to keep their chats away from spying eyes. The upcoming feature will soon be released, and once it is available, the fingerprint lock settings will turn into biometric lock.
Given the leaked images, it looks like we can choose when we want to lock the app automatically, which is a significant improvement! The feature’s settings might also be based on Android’s BiometricPrompt API, allowing apps to use the fingerprint sensor and face scanners for authentication matters.
We don’t know for sure when the feature will roll out to the Android Beta variant of WhatsApp. Some users, however, will get the feature a bit earlier.
Join Group Calls Details
Another fantastic feature ready to arrive in the WhatsApp realm is the ability to join a call if you have missed it. A report claims that WhatsApp is currently working on such a feature and is unclear when it will be launched.
