WhatsApp New features like WhatsApp Dark mode and Fingerprint lock

1- Whatsapp Dark mode

Forwarding messages in the night will now be less stressful into your eyes. This new feature named WhatsApp Dark Mode will dim the interface of WhatsApp in the night. Users can also save some battery as brighter screen consumes more energy compared to a darker screen. 


WABetaInfo, recently tweeted about this big update. (1) It says:-

2- Fingerprint Unlock

Rumors are around the corner about fingerprint lock in WhatsApp. Where privacy is concerned, WhatsApp has taken many steps regarding this. Previous years updates which include message forward limit, a forward label on the messages are the result of this.

In some few updates later, you can unlock WhatsApp with your fingerprint similar like other banking or wallet apps.

Every time a user wants to check a message or want to use WhatsApp, then he/she will have to unlock with their fingerprint.

This feature will remove the urge to use some other third party locking app. It will help save your memory space.

3 – Video preview

Similar to an image preview through the notification tray, WhatsApp is going to make this possible for videos as well. The current version of WhatsApp only allows gifs and images.

After this update, users will be able to preview videos too in the notification tray. This is handy if you want to check a video without knowing the other person that you were online and have checked his or her message.😜😜

You can download WhatsApp new version APK from the button given below. Also if you want to try out these new features before everyone else, then sign up for WhatsApp beta update available in the play store.


I use this trick always for any message or image as I don’t want the other person to know whether I have checked his/her messages or not, especially when my other half’s message arrives. XD😜😜

There are many more updates incoming this year. Stay tuned for more updates.
