Facebook-owned messaging app has now introduced another feature which may or may not work in your favour.
WhatsApp will no more allow users to take a screenshot of chat conversations, according to WABetaInfo.
It comes as a disheartening move by WhatsApp for those who love to screenshot conversations and use them later to share with their friends or other users, which they don’t realise is a violation of privacy.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, apart from the ‘No screenshot’ rule, WhatsApp is also introducing fingerprint authentication.
The new features are expected to make their way to a new version of the app in the coming weeks on all Android devices as per reports.
This beta update on WhatsApp also brought some changes to the sticker tab. WhatsApp now categorises stickers and emoji side by side. The stickers tab also has sub-sections like recents, content stickers, shapes and favourites. Stickers and emoji can be viewed in one single page. At present, emoji, GIF and stickers are placed separately on WhatsApp.
