WhatsApp is working on a new update that will take away your privilege to screenshot conversations.

According to WABetaInfo, the company will roll out a new feature that will block screenshots on Android phones. It also reported that the feature will go live along with biometric authentication.

Other updates in WhatsApp’s UI include a ‘doodle’ feature. Users can add stickers, emojis, text and hand-drawn content. The app will have two separate tabs for stickers and emojis, and stickers will also be grouped by favorites and category.

The new features will come with an updated version of the app in the coming weeks.
