WhatsApp Upcoming features for Android users, protect backup in Google drive

WhatsApp upcoming updates will feature with a new Protect Backup feature using these WhatsApp users can protect their backups available on the Google drive. Currently, WhatsApp working on this feature is still on the Alpha stage development. But these features will be soon available for everyone, however, WhatsApp recently officially released the Dark mode feature to all stable Android WhatsApp users. 

WhatsApp Protect Backup Feature

As we all know that, WhatsApp will feature with end-to-end encryption for all WhatsApp chat messages but, for WhatsApp backups available in Google drive is not encrypted. Similarly, earlier WhatsApp & Google made an announcement that, WhatsApp backup file stored in the Google drive will not be added into the Google Drive storage. That means the total memory of WhatsApp backup file is not included with the Google Drive storage quota. This is a good thing, but some users feel that WhatsApp might allow Google to read the WhatsApp backup’s available in the Google Drive storage but it’s not real.  To overcome this issue WhatsApp brings a new features called “Protect Backup“.

The WhatsApp Protect backup feature option will be available directly on the Chat Backup settings. As per the source, the Protect backup feature will be encrypted with a password to secure the WhatsApp backup file. Once, you enabled the protect backup feature, thereafter users need to put the password each time on restoring the WhatsApp backup. Also, WhatsApp will not help for a forgotten password so, you’ve had to remember the protect backup password if in-case you’ve forgotten means you can’t able to restore the backup and likewise there is no option to recover the forgotten password. 
As I already said, the WhatsApp Protect backup feature is currently in the Alpha stage and WhatsApp is currently working on this feature. Likewise, it still not received for even beta users so, once I got more details regarding this feature I’ll update. Meanwhile, if you guys want to know more about WhatsApp read below archive.

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.

WhatsApp new update features blocked contacts notice & blocked contacts grouped

WhatsApp had submitted a new update through a beta program by bringing a version to 2.19.332. The new WhatsApp beta update features a new blocked contact notice and Grouped Blocked contacts. Let see how the feature works

Blocked Contacts Notice

WhatsApp working on a small feature that when a contacts blocked the particular contact chat now shows the notice as “You blocked this contact. Tap to unblock.” Similarly, after unblock it notice as “You unblocked this contact” in chat page. 

style="display:block" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9570743748236416" data-ad-slot="8944818353" data-ad-format="auto" data-full-width-responsive="true">
type="adsense" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9570743748236416" data-ad-slot="9438585135" data-auto-format="rspv" data-full-width="">
However, the notice on the blocked chat only shows for who blocked the contact and not on the other side. For instance, if you’re blocked by someone means you’ll not get any notice but the person who blocks you got noticed in the chat. 

Grouped Blocked Contacts

Similarly, as like blocked contact notice WhatsApp updated another small feature so-called Grouped Blocked Contacts. The name suggests that the blocked contacts are grouped seperately on the contacts list in WhatsApp. Also, this WhatsApp feature will be organized automatically.  

style="display:block" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9570743748236416" data-ad-slot="8944818353" data-ad-format="auto" data-full-width-responsive="true">
type="adsense" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9570743748236416" data-ad-slot="9438585135" data-auto-format="rspv" data-full-width="">
