WhatsApp is rolling out more features and some of them are pretty major.

As one of the popular messaging platforms around the globe, security concerns remain of prime importance and the app is continuously enhancing its features to further work on this.

When the announcement was shared by Mark Zuckerberg, Meta CEO, he said, “We’ll keep building new ways to protect your messages and keep them as private and secure as face-to-face conversations.”

With over two billion users globally, it’s important to be aware of the latest features introduced.

Experience a swift group chat exit

With the numerous group chats increasing over the years, users might want to clear their app of any unused groups. Previously, a notification would be seen for all members of the group, if any user left the chat.

To reduce this attention, the latest feature allows for only the group admin to be aware of this, while the other members remain unaware of this.

Limit your online status to some users

There have been countless occasions when users would have liked to avoid individuals from seeing their online status. With the latest features, the platform allows users to block people on their chat from seeing that they’re online.

Avoid screenshots for ‘view-once’ messages

After introducing this long-awaited Snapchat-like feature in 2021, users were able to enjoy disappearing messages, allowing the application to advance its privacy settings with ease.

Once a photo or video is opened, it automatically disappears from both the phones after being seen. However, receivers could previously take a screenshot of this. To further enhance security, receivers will not be able to take screenshots of photos or videos sent using the view-once feature and this will be implemented in the near future.
