Delhi : New security and privacy features were recently added to WhatsApp. A recent report claims that WhatsApp is working on animated emojis as the instant messaging service plans to release new chat capabilities.

According to a rumour on WaBetainfo, WhatsApp wants to provide animated emojis to improve users' chat experiences by introducing a new feature to inject humour into talks.

According to rumours, WhatsApp is leveraging the Lottie library to create animated emoji capabilities for the app. After the feature was discovered during the development of WhatsApp Desktop beta, which is scheduled to release in the following update, rumours began to circulate.

When the functionality is active, animated emojis from the platform will immediately appear in conversation, exactly like existing WhatsApp emojis and symbols do. Users will find it much simpler and easier to express their feelings and emotions using animated emoji thanks to the functionality.

In the meantime, WhatsApp just launched three new security features to add an additional layer of security to the platform: Account Protect, Device Verification, and Automatic Security Codes.

"Protecting your personal messages with default end-to-end encryption is the foundation of that security, and we'll never stop building new features to give you extra layers of privacy, and more control over your messages," WhatsApp wrote in a blog post announcing new security features.

How Your WhatsApp Account Is Protected By The New Features:

Account Protect: If you need to move your WhatsApp account to a different device, WhatsApp will confirm that it's actually you. In order to add another layer of protection, WhatsApp may prompt you on your outdated smartphone to confirm that you want to proceed.

Verifying the device: One of the biggest risks to people's privacy is mobile device malware. In order to assist prevent this, WhatsApp has added additional checks that will help authenticate your account without requiring any input from you and will better safeguard you if your device is compromised.

Automatic Security Codes: WhatsApp has launched a security feature based on a method known as "Key Transparency" that enables users to instantly confirm that they are connected to a secure network. The user will be able to immediately confirm that their private discussion is secured when they click on the encryption tab, which is what it means for them.
