Similarly, WhatsApp this year focused more on the features related to user privacy. Let’s take a look at the 2019 best WhatsApp features.

WhatsApp Messenger

WhatsApp Messenger is a freeware and cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP (VOIP) service. This application allows the sending of Text messages, video calls, Audio & Video, documents sharing and live location. The application runs on mobile devices by using mobile numbers through cellular data free of cost. WhatsApp was founded in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum both are worked at Yahoo. Later WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook in February 2014. WhatsApp service enabled on iOS, Android, Windows & similarly Jio Phone on Kai OS. 

WhatsApp Features 2019

As already told, WhatsApp focused more on the features related to user privacy in 2019 like WhatsApp fingerprint lock support by default, WhatsApp Group Invitation feature to avoid from added in the unknown group list, and finally, WhatsApp ban the users who are using the modded applications like GB WhatsApp, WhatsApp plus etc,. Similarly, few more features are implemented in 2019 as general improvements. 

WhatsApp Fingerprint Lock

WhatsApp worked for this feature for nearly six months for Beta update. After that, nearly 3 months for the stable update. However, it’s definitely worth a wait because this feature has worked pretty fast & secure always even the application available in the recent app list. Once the feature enabled WhatsApp authentication is linked with the device default security credentials.

Therefore, each time opening the application user need to authenticate using a fingerprint. Similarly, the fingerprint lock works even the application working at the background. This great feature will work for Android version Marshmallow and newer with fingerprint sensor-enabled mobiles.
