It comes after the platform announced it is working on an auto-chat feature similar to Telegram’s recorded messages.

WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo said in its statement that the feature is no longer supported on all desktop apps, including Windows and macOS, for added privacy. The measure will prevent users from taking screenshots of messages sent using the privacy feature. According to reports, the feature was introduced to the web last year.
