Business News/ Technology / App News/  WhatsApp users will soon be able to create stickers within the app: Report

Meta-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp is working on a new feature for its iOS app. According to a report by WaBetaInfo, WhatsApp is developing a feature that will allow users to create stickers within the app. The feature was discovered in the latest WhatsApp beta for iOS update that is available on the TestFlight app.

Sharing a screenshot of the feature, the report says that a ‘New Sticker’ option will be available within the chat share action sheet. The feature is currently under development. It is not yet known how the feature will work. 

The report, however, states that the new feature will allow users to choose a photo from their library and offer some tools to edit it, such as the ability to remove the background. With a tool to create stickers within WhatsApp, users will no longer have to rely on third-party apps.

As mentioned above, the feature is under development. It is likely to be rolled out in a future update.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp has introduced the new Chat Lock feature that helps in keeping the messages of users ‘private and secure’. The new feature will keep the 'intimate conversations' of users behind an added layer of security. Any new notifications related to these 'locked chats' will also be hidden and users will be required to enter their device password or biometric information such as fingerprint touch or facial recognition.

How to use lock your Chats on WhatsApp?

1) Tap on the name of the contact or group you want to lock

2) Click on the Chat Lock option under the Contact details page

3) Choose if you want to lock your chat using biometric details or your password.

4) Enter your phone password or biometric details and your personal conversations will be locked.
