New WhatsApp feature to be added soon
The ability to block the screenshot function
This is likely to be the most controversial change, and it was already spotted in a beta built. Users will have the option to enable a feature which will block other users from taking screenshots of the chat window. The rumor has already sparked controversies, and angry fans shared several tweets on the subject. It remains to be seen if it will make the transition to the stable build.
Refreshed Doodle UI
The Doodle UI function offers emojis which are quite different when compared to the emojis available in conversations. IT seems that a new update with changing this as standard emojis will replace the ones offered by the Doodle editor.
More animated stickers
Animated stickers are one of the best attractions of Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp now offers the feature. It is likely that a richer selection of animated stickers, including some provided by third-party entities, will become available in the future.
