WhatsApp screenshot blocker now arriving in Android beta

New Delhi: Meta-owned WhatsApp has now started testing screenshot blocking features in the Android beta. This prevents users from taking screenshots to view images and videos once, the media reported. WhatsApp had previously introduced this feature in WhatsApp beta for iOS.

Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced three new privacy features on WhatsApp that give users more control over their conversations and extra layers of protection when sending messages.

Screenshot blocking was one of those features and was under development on WhatsApp beta for iOS, and has not been noticed in Android beta by WhatsApp beta tracker website WABetaInfo.

“WhatsApp is working on a new presentation screen that will introduce the new version of view once: thanks to this new version, it is impossible to take screenshots to view images and videos once,” the website said on Thursday.

When the recipient tries to take a screenshot to view images and videos once, the screenshot will be blocked automatically, but the sender will not receive a notification.
