The Facebook-owned instant messaging platform WhatsApp is used by more than 200 million users of all age groups in India. This new feature allows users to mute messages from unwanted groups and people for a lifetime. For those Android devices that support face unlock, though, you couldn't really use this feature.

WhatsApp is gearing up to introduce a series of sleek new features. In the past couple of weeks, reports have detailed a number of new features that the company has been working on.

Users need to go to Google Play Store on the Android device or App store on iPhone to update WhatsApp.

As can be seen in the screenshot below, the "Fingerprint Lock" setting will be renamed to "Biometric Lock" once the feature rolls out.

WhatsApp is getting ready to introduce more biometric authentication for Android users to keep their chats away from spying eyes. As of now, only "Fingerprint lock" is available in the Privacy settings of WhatsApp, but it looks like this option will change to "Biometric lock" as it will include authentication with face unlock or other unique identifiers, along with fingerprint.

Twitter is coming to share feature for Android. If an anonymous individual was able to acquire your password, TFA will prevent them from using it since the account will first ask you through your device if you're the one accessing it. However, the features are still expected to be rolled out in the future update. A few months ago, WhatsApp increased the participants for voice and video call from four to eight members. There's also another update that will be coming in which WhatsApp will allow users to join group calls that they've initially missed.
