WhatsApp Introduces Face Unlock To Its Android App


Whatsapp has been getting an abundance of updates lately, ensuring the app stays the number one messaging platform in the world. The Facebook-owned service is planning a new update to include a couple of new interesting features for the Android app.

WaBetaInfo reports, that the new update submitted through the Google Play beta program, shows two new features- the long-awaited ability to join missed group calls and biometric lock. 

Right now, Android Whatsapp users can’t join a group call if they missed the initial call, something that frustrates many. The new update will surely be welcomed, especially during these times when calls and video calls have become so frequent.

The new “Biometric lock” is also set to improve the Android running log-in process, most recent smartphones replacing the fingerprint sensor with facial recognition.

A new menu has been added to the new beta version of WhatsApp, which will replace the current “Fingerprint lock” menu.


There is no official date for when these updates will be widely available. As the report shows everything is still in the testing phase.

1.5 billion users in 180 countries make WhatsApp the most popular messaging app in the world. Developers haven’t been slacking and are continuously releasing updates to keep up with the times and make the app more user friendly.
