Android beta app was updated by WhatsApp to version 2.19.83, and some people could see the latest Fingerprint Authentication feature. For some time now, the company was trying to create this feature, and the newest update is suggesting that WhatsApp has developed a lot. A bad thing is that this feature is disabled by default, so it is not going to be available for beta users at this time. The time is not known as to when WhatsApp is going to roll out for the stable version users.
Reports are saying that the Authentication feature is going to enable the WhatsApp users to lock and unlock their account by using a fingerprint sensor. You can enable this in Settings >Account >Privacy > Use Fingerprint to Unlock. Just the moment a user enables it, WhatsApp is going to register your fingerprint. After that it will inquire whether you wish the app to be locked at once (starting from the time you leave the app)/ after 1 minute/ after 10 minutes/ or after 30 minutes.
WhatsApp is going to display a sign telling the users that they are supposed to unlock the app using fingerprint authentication. An error is going to be displayed in case the app is not unlocked after more than one try. By this time, this feature is not offered, so it won’t even be displayed if you are running the newest beta version 2.19.83. The next updates are going to present this feature for beta users. A thing to note is that at this time in the stable version of the iOS app the iPhone users are having the feature, and except for facial recognition via Face ID, fingerprint authentication by the use of Touch ID is offered for them.
Dark Mode was also seen in one of the latest beta updates of WhatsApp. Nothing is said as to the time when the WhatsApp Dark Mode is going to come out for the stable version. Fresh beta versions further suggest that WhatsApp is also working on the latest forwarding features.
