WhatsApp brings another layer of privacy, see how the new feature will work

 Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly testing a new feature that will allow users to send voice notes with View Once mode. It is expected that this feature will give better privacy to the users.

According to well-known WhatsApp tipster publication WABetaInfo, the messaging platform is rolling out a feature for some beta testers on Android and iOS that will allow users to set View Once mode on voice notes. For this, WhatsApp may include a new View Once icon with a lock during recording in the chat bar.

View Once mode will be so beneficial for voice notes :

When you click this icon, the voice note will likely be shared in View Once mode, so the recipient won't be able to export, forward, save, or record it.

Enabling “view once” mode when sending a voice note will ensure that once dismissed, neither the sender nor the receiver can hear it again, thereby enhancing privacy and security for sensitive and confidential information and preventing misuse or abuse. Playback will be paused again.

This new feature of WhatsApp will give users more control over the shared content. Users will also be rest assured that their voice messages will not be stored or shared without their consent, making WhatsApp an even more secure platform for personal conversations.

Overall, this feature will provide a more secure and user-friendly experience when sending voice messages on WhatsApp, making it a great platform for both casual and sensitive conversations.

WhatsApp Passkeys

Recently WhatsApp has announced Passkey support on Android. Passkeys lets users sign in to their accounts the same way they unlock their devices with a fingerprint, face scan, or PIN. This feature aims to increase user security and simplify the authentication process in this popular messaging app.
