WhatsApp Introduces New Feature: Know How It Works

- Advertisement -

Digit News Desk; WhatsApp has been in the news in India a lot recently for its privacy policy issues. But today we are focusing on a new feature that’s available in WhatApp beta. The information comes from WhatsApp Beta Info.

The new feature lets users mute a video before sending it to a contact. The ability to mute a video before sending it is available in the 2.21.3.13 update. According to WhatsApp Beta Info, “After releasing the 2.21.3.13 update, WhatsApp is finally rolling out something new for their beta testers: the possibility to mute videos before sending it to a contact!”

The feature is pretty handy if you need to send someone a video but don’t want to send the background audio. Previously you would have resorted to third-party software to do the same and then send the video. This feature is obviously handy to a specific set of people, but it’s nice that the feature has made an appearance.

There is no information as to when the feature will be available in the final version of WhatsApp. In other WhatsApp news, there is malware making the rounds on the instant messaging service. If you receive a message that reads, “Download This application and Win Mobile Phone” then we suggest you avoid it.

The message prompts users to download a fake Huawei app, asks for several permissions including notification access to instantly reply to WhatsApp messages that carry a link to the scammer’s site. As a general security practice, you should not click on any unknown link, even if it shared with you by a known contact. You can learn more about the new malware.

Sticking with WhatsApp security, the service has given users the option to implement biometric authentication for WhatsApp for Web or the desktop app as an added layer of security. This will prevent others that have your device from logging into WhatsApp for Web.
