Users will be able to use their fingerprints to open WhatsApp when this function is activated. WABetaInfo, a fan website that tracks updates to WhatsApp, reported on Tuesday, will also be able to answer calls when WhatsApp is locked.
If you want to enable the new feature, go to Settings on your WhatsApp and then Account. Click Privacy and enable Fingerprint Lock. But make sure your WhatsApp is updated first.
“The previous update might get the feature as well, but WhatsApp is always used to enable features in recent updates (that might contain bug fixes and improvements for the feature), so you should install the 2.19.221 update as above mentioned,” said WABetaInfo.
