WhatsApp Fingerprint Lock Feature For Android Beta Users Rolled Out; How To Activate The Feature on Android Smartphone
14 August, 2019, 08:27
The new update was first reported by WABetaInfo citing that every WhatsApp Beta user on Android will be able to use the authentication feature without any issues, subjected if their phone has a fingerprint scanner. If everything goes well during tests, Fingerprint Lock might be deployed to all Android users in the next couple of weeks. Keep in mind though that you will still be able to reply to messages directly from notifications, as well as answer WhatsApp calls since the app will only ask you for authentication when you want to open WhatsApp. The company has now started testing the feature on its Android beta app with its new version 2.19.221 update. The update also brings a new "show content in notifications" option, which allows users to select if they want to show or hide the message previews in the notification bar when the fingerprint lock is enabled.
Before uninstalling the app from the smartphone make sure you take a backup of your chat history. The feature will work on Android Marshmallow and above.
The fingerprint unlock feature will soon ship to the official WhatsApp for Android app.
You can set a timer for the automatic lock - this can happen immediately, after 1 minute, or after 30 minutes. Users can choose from these options according to their preference. After installing the new version, you will be able to access the new feature. So if you choose anything but "immediately", you get a specific amount of time from your last use of WhatsApp during which the app stays "unlocked" and won't require a fingerprint again.
WABetainfoWABetainfo also says that Whatsapp is now working on the "Dark mode" feature and will roll it out in the coming three months. Now, many months later, the same thing has finally made it to Android, although at the moment the functionality is only part of the latest WhatsApp beta build. The authentication is required only when you open WhatsApp.
