WhatsApp has recently introduced a new feature called Chat Lock for users to make their intimate conversations even more private. The Meta-owned group enables its users to lock individual chats to enhance the security of their messages and protect their privacy.

If you don’t want someone to peep into the chat of a particular person then you can enable the Chat Lock feature as it allows an individual to lock that person’s chat with a password or biometric authentication.

The Chat Lock feature lets you protect your most intimate conversations with a password and secures them in a separate folder. When someone messages you and you have that chat locked, the sender’s name and the content of the message will also be hidden.

Along with this, when a WhatsApp chat is locked, that conversation thread is taken out of a user’s inbox, and put behind a folder of its own. It also automatically hides the contents of that chat in notifications.

As per Meta, the ability to lock a chat will be greatly beneficial for users who share their phones with family members from time to time.

  • Swipe down to access all locked chats.

Instagram new feature: Social Media users can now display song lyrics in reels

The photo and video-sharing platform owned by Meta Platforms, Instagram, is getting a feature that will allow users to add lyrics to their reels. Instagram head at the Mark Zuckerberg-helmed social media giant, Adam Mosseri took to his Broadcast Channel to announce the update.

Adam Mosseri noted that a new feature is rolling out a way to add song lyrics when editing Instagram Reels. He added that they have seen people manually add lyrics to Reels, so he hopes that this makes it easier to use music to express oneself. He assured that they are working on more updates to get creative on Reels. He further mentioned that the feature is similar to one that is already available for Instagram Stories.

Here are the steps to add song lyrics to your Instagram Reels:

First, go to the Instagram app, followed by tapping the Reels icon at the bottom of the screen.

Then, click on the Music icon on the top of the screen and choose a song from the library or your own audio.

Next, tap on the Lyrics icon at the bottom and choose a font and a colour for the text.

Then, drag the text to the desired position and, using the slider, select the portion or part of the lyrics you want to display.

Finally, tap on the Done button and edit and share the Reel as usual.

Notably, music has become a key element in the growth of TikTok, with the platform now looking to expand its music industry links, through a new partnership with Billboard on a TikTok trending chart and even its own live music event.  

Instagram stated that social media users are already manually adding song lyrics to their Reels clips, so it probably makes sense for IG to make this easier. Reports stated that the new lyrics sticker has been rolled out to all Instagram users.
