Previous news? WhatsApp beta for Android what’s new? WhatsApp is working on a new interface with a white top app bar and a green app name!


In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android update, we shared news regarding a new feature in development that involves your email address. Specifically, WhatsApp is currently working on a new security feature to protect your account using an email address so that it can be used to verify your account. The feature is still in development but, thanks to the WhatsApp beta for Android update, which is available on the Google Play Store, we discovered a new feature to verify your email address!

As you can see in this screenshot, a new email verification screen is under development. With this screenshot, we finally know more details about how WhatsApp will use your email address. In particular, it will provide users with an additional way to access their WhatsApp account once their email address is confirmed. It’s very important to note that your email address will never be visible to your contacts as a privacy measure.

Although there are limited details available regarding how this feature will be used, it is expected to be very useful in the future. For example, many users complain about not being able to log into WhatsApp because they don’t receive the 6-digit code via SMS. This feature should help those users access their accounts even when they are unable to do so. It’s important to highlight that this feature will be optional, and your email should be automatically verified if you use your Google account to back up your chat history on Google Drive or have previously set up two-step verification.

The email verification feature is under development and it will be available in a future update of the app. As always, we are going to share a new article when we have further information regarding this feature for our readers.
