Users can now prevent other users from taking screenshots or recording videos of view-once media thanks to a new WhatsApp Beta upgrade. The most recent update also enables group administrators to poll their members.The way WhatsApp uses its view-once photos and videos has undergone some significant adjustments. Polls in group chat, a frequently requested feature, are also being added.
With the most recent WhatsApp version, users can now prevent captures of view-only photographs. Group polls have also been added.In the most recent WhatsApp Beta version, users who transfer material as see-once have the option to prevent the recipient from taking screenshots or screen recordings while the media is being watched.
This functionality might already be available to some beta testers who download the most recent beta from the Play Store.
How the screenshot blocking tool in WhatsApp operates: This feature has a really attractive interface. The recipient is never informed when they attempt to screenshot view-once media, but WhatsApp’s API prevents them from doing so. Similarly, while viewing a view-once image or movie, screen recording is likewise turned off. The image will always be black no matter what third-party add-ons a user tries to employ.
You can still take screenshots of typical chats and debates, even those with fading text because the new ability is only capable of seeing once-only photographs and videos. A view-once image or video cannot be exported, forwarded, or saved. A second device must be used if the recipient wants to continue taking pictures or videos of the scene. Therefore, it is always best to use caution while choosing your media.
Workings of WhatsApp Group Polls Users of WhatsApp’s most recent beta version will have the possibility of creating polls in specific group chats. Only group administrators will currently have the ability to create polls. Users of WhatsApp’s new poll feature will be able to select up to 12 options and arrange them any way they want. Additionally, administrators will have the choice to let users select multiple options.
Regular users can examine more detailed information about the voters by tapping “See votes” in the poll results screen. When a new vote is cast, the poll is instantly updated to reflect the new results.
