Whatsapp is launching fingerprint authentication feature and more


Whatsapp is working for launching a new feature which will make the app more cool than before. It is testing feature update for its Android beta version making it much easier for users to manage media (Photos, Videos) on the platform.


WABetaInfo has recently reported that the app has got support for a new ‘Show in chat’ shortcut which allows users to quickly see media directly in the chat and a new ‘rotate’ feature which enables users to rotate images without leaving WhatsApp, Khaleej Times reported.

This new feature will let the users directly trace the chat where the image is used. The ‘set as’ option will let users choose if they want to set it as a group icon, wallpaper or as their profile photo.

The most interesting feature that is going to be launched is the fingerprint authentication. This feature will help to make your chats more secure than before

This feature would be available in future for any Android user (and later for iOS users too) having Android Marshmallow and newer operating systems and a fingerprint sensor.

WhatsApp is also reportedly working on another feature that will allow its users to mute a chat directly from the notification centre.
