As can be seen from the screenshot, the feature presentation sheet will show up within the drawing editor when users will open the view once icon. 

When this feature will be live on the users’ device, the notification will read: “View once messages just got more private.”

It will further read, “Now when you send a view once message, the recipient can’t take a screenshot of it, for added privacy, users will not be able to share, forward, copy or save it.”

Apart from this feature, WhatsApp is also testing a new feature of picture-in-picture mode for video calls. Reports suggest that this feature was spotted on iOS beta version where only limited iPhone users are able to access this feature.

This new feature will allow users to work on other apps while being on a video call with someone. Similar to this feature, apps like YouTube and Google Meet already come with the support of this feature.
