WABetaInfo, a website tracking the features of WhatsApp, discovered some features of WhatsApp v2.20.117 beta for AndroidHuh. The update reportedly fixes an important bug that caused the app to crash. The feature tracker indicates that WhatsApp used to crash because the app did not have a library called libcurve25519.so.
In addition to this fix, the latest beta version also includes information on an advanced search message feature, which helps to easily find any type of media. Users will be able to easily search for photos, audio, GIFs, videos and documents, etc. within WhatsApp, especially using this new search feature. This feature is still under development and even if you download the latest beta version, you will not see it. This feature was seen in the WhatsApp v18.104.22.168 beta for the iPhone last year and is now being tested on Android as well.
The Protect Backup feature is also currently under development, but the new update brings a field where users need to enter a password. Earlier this feature was also seen in WhatsApp v2.20.66 beta for Android. Explain that this feature gives users the opportunity to secure their chat backups with passwords.
Finally, WhatsApp is also working on a new auto-download rule, which can be applied by default from future updates. Often forwarded photos, videos, documents and voice messages are downloaded automatically, but this new rule will prevent WhatsApp from doing so.
