Whatsapp has announced that a brand new feature will block users from taking screenshots of any private messages.
The Facebook-owned messaging app is working on this new feature that will require a user’s fingerprint to access their chats. This feature will then block screenshots from being taken if this feature is enabled, according to WABetaInfo.
The fingerprint feature is currently still in the “alpha stage of development”. WABetaInfo says that while the feature is still in the works, it is not sure if users will be impressed by this new feature.
“We do not know why WhatsApp decided to prevent screenshots when fingerprint is enabled, and personally don’t know if users like the idea.”
Whatsapp, too, is reportedly working on a brand new feature that will block people from adding you into group chats without your permission.
It can be highly annoying if you’re in a group where the conversation is not interesting at all.
Many times we stay in these groups created by friends because leaving the group would come across as rude. But Whatsapp is working on a new feature that will allow the user to decide whether or not they want to be added into any group.
The new privacy setting will allow users to control who can add them to groups.
The feature will force the person who created the group to send an invitation to the group, giving the user the option to accept or decline.
This new feature has already been rolled out in India and will be available worldwide soon.
