Previous news? WhatsApp is rolling out status updates within the chat list on Desktop beta

In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we posted news about a new feature available to some beta testers: screenshot protection for view once images and videos. Thanks to this feature, it is no longer possible to take a screenshot to view once messages. This feature has also been released to non-beta users some time ago and WhatsApp is now launching a new presentation sheet to introduce these improvements to some beta testers after installing the WhatsApp beta for Android update:

As you can see in this screenshot, the presentation sheet for view once messages shows up within the drawing editor when you tap the view once icon. If this feature is enabled for your WhatsApp account, WhatsApp will inform you that the recipient can’t take a screenshot of it. As usual, it is not even possible to share, forward, copy, and save the view once image and video.

The new presentation sheet has been released to some beta testers and it is rolling out to even more users over the coming days.
