If you are wondering how to enable this option, well, that's very simple, no matter either you are using WhatsApp on iOS, Android, or on the Web.

Whatsapp is one of the most used messaging platform used by billions.

A few months ago, reports suggested a slew of new WhatsApp features is approaching.

This is an improvement from the previous feature which allows users to mute a chat for a maximum period of one year.


WhatsApp wants to bring the app's version to 2.20.203.3 for Android.

WhatsApp might add voice and video calling feature to the web version of WhatsApp. As the next level, it looks like WhatsApp will bring face unlock support for Android users.

Discovering the potential of this sharing feature in a short time, Twitter expands this simple feature to iOS and Android users.

Another fantastic feature ready to arrive in the WhatsApp realm is the ability to join a call if you have missed it. Meanwhile, WhatsApp is now allowing users to mute contacts and groups forever. But those Android devices which have face unlock support can not use this feature. Developers haven't been slacking and are continuously releasing updates to keep up with the times and make the app more user friendly.


This new setting will be based on the BiometricPrompt API of Android. Fingerprint lock will be renamed to "Biometric lock" and will expand to cover face unlock.

The development is the latest in the list of several features introduced by the company since the dawn of the year. Meanwhile, you can let us know whether or not you're a fan of unlocking apps using your face down in the comments section.

Soon, users will be able to join ongoing group calls that they have missed through a new prompt.
