Shawn also likes to spend countless hours on social media to hunt the latest news from the biggest technology companies, so that his reports are as fresh as possible.

Of course, the move will raise some questions because both Instagram and WhatsApp were acquired by Facebook.

WhatsApp Web users can expect Albums and Grouped Stickers to be rolled out soon. "We want to be clearer about the products and services that are part of Facebook", a spokesperson said. The same was spotted in app version 106.0.0.24.118.

The announcement to merge WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger came at a time when founders of WhatsApp and Instagram had left the company, ceding complete control of these two services to Facebook. This feature has been made available in India as well.

What do you think of WhatsApp's new feature? WhatsApp has also launched a new feature titled "Frequently Forwarded" which enables fingerprint unlocking and smart spam messages on fingerprints on smart phones with fingerprint sensor. The feature is now available for WhatsApp beta users who are running Android version 2.19.222. It was revealed that "From Facebook" tag will be given after the name of both the apps to show that these platforms belong to Facebook.

To enable the feature, users are advised to update their WhatsApp version to 2.19.221 Android Beta, with the update available to all Beta users who are on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and above.

Moreover, the new tag for branding comes into being after the popular instant messaging app began to roll out a new security feature. Android users do however have a new option. You can automatically lock your WhatsApp using three options - immediately; after 1 minute; and after 30 minutes.
